How to write a Letter for Cancellation of Credit Card (2 Samples)

When you've chosen to shut down your credit card, whether it's because you have too many credit cards or you simply don't want it anymore, you'll want to be sure you do it correctly.

You may terminate your credit card account without writing a letter, but sending one provides physical confirmation that you asked it to be closed.

You may even terminate your account by calling your credit card company first, then sending a letter for your records. 

You can get extra confirmation that your request was received by sending the letter by certified mail

You'll have the letter to prove it if there's ever a doubt about whether or not you cancel your account and when.

How to write a letter for the cancellation of a credit card?

  1. Depending on the circumstances, the letters might be written to bank managers or any other appropriate bank official.
  2. Keep your letter brief and to the point. Mention your want to cancel the credit card, as well as the reason for doing so.
  3. If you have any outstanding balances, explain how and when you intend to settle them.
  4. Letters of cancellation are written straightforwardly and simply.
  5.  Directly to the point, and propose measures you anticipate being taken. Declare what you're canceling and why you're canceling it. 
  6. Include the specifics of what you're canceling, such as account information, if required. 
  7. Mention that you'd like proof that your cancellation was successful.
  8.  Clearly state what you'll do if the cancellation isn't implemented within the stated notification time. 
  9. Finish on a good note by asking the recipient to acknowledge receipt of the letter. 
  10. Send the letter far ahead of time to allow the reader plenty of time to respond.
