Surprising that they notified you and are continuing to give you access to the site. Their MO in the past is to simply cancel your account, lock you out, and then tell you after the fact.

However, I would have liked to be able to delete my credit card information from my account before they became inaccessible...
I sense irrationality here. Why would you care to delete your credit card information? What would that do for you?
If you trust GBG, then you'd trust that, once they shut down, they would destroy any data before it could pass into some else's hands even if you hadn't "deleted" it.
But if think deleting your credit card information from your account somehow protects you, then you're also trusting GBG that when you press the button, they will immediately wipe it from every mirrored server and backup copy, which surely they have.
I don't see how you "removing your credit card information" does anything one way or another for you, once the site is shut down.
doctorofcredit said: @BenH, if you were worried about data theft why did you even sign up for the service to begin with? It just sounds like sour grapes because they shut you down. I wasn't worried about data theft. I was just making a point to others that the person you trust your data with doesn't need to be malicious - most organizations are not well protected from breach no matter what they say.
But yes, I have sour grapes because they shut me down - moreso from the manner in which they did it.
