Maintain a Zero Balance on Your Card for Emergencies

Maintaining a zero balance on a card is a way to provide for an emergency. Closing an unused account can hurt your credit score in the short term, as it causes a drop in your available credit. Some card issuers require a minimum amount charged each month or year to keep the card active. If that is the case, consider using the card for a recurring expense, like your cable bill, each month. Pay it in full and you will be sure that the account will stay open and active.
