Last piece of plastic gone bye bye

It's my Sears card. I've had this thing since...well lets see, it says right on it "valued customer since 1987". Guffaw, 28.8% interest, no wonder I'm valued!
Actually I thought I had already cut this up and cancelled the account, but I found it tucked away with some old budgeting notes I had. (I hauled out my old budget printouts from a year ago to rework some numbers to see when I'd be debt free, and lo and behold there was my card and a $15 Sears club certificate, guess I wanted that $15!)
So I went on a hunt at Sears yesterday to use the certificate, looking for something that would only cost $15. Ha! yah right! Finally found some $3.99 packages of glass bauble jewel thingies (like you put in vases), so got 3 of those for a DIY mirror project I have in mind, and two 0.99 candles. With tax it came to $16.04.
So here we go. I'm snipping it. It's gone. Little eensy weensy pieces.
Now I'll go pay them $1.04 online and then phone them and close the account.
Anyone care to have a card snipping contest??? Let's make it a challenge, cuz we don't need all this plastic, they just want us to think we need it! (I'm thinking of our huge line of credit that was pushed on us when we got a mortgage, 'just in case we have an emergency in our new home'... sigh... but that's a whole other rant).
