How to close a Google Account?

No! Not me. I wouldn't delete my Google Account, unless off course, I have lots of them. And as I had first thought, Google hasn't made it difficult to close an account. Just a few steps and the account would be gone.
As I had mentioned before, deleting is easy, so I would just show you where to look for the link to delete an account.

(Before proceeding, it would be important to note that closing a Google Account will also close other Google services like Blogger, Adsense, Gmail etc.)

1. Login to your Google Account and click the 'Edit' link near My products. You will find this link near the center (See image).2. A new web page is displayed which provides you with options to either delete the entire Google Account or just a service like Gmail.

3.Carefully follow what you are prompted with and its done.

Thank man. It was helpful.
I am able to use my adword coupon code because of this closing tutorial here. Adwords coupon requires google account to be no older than 15 days.

Thanks mate!!

I tried to delete an account and it won't accept my main sign-in email address as the new default one.
