Update time!

 

Tonight I pushed the often-celebrated "luv button" on Cap one - after having reduced the balance to $10 and let it sit there a couple of days

 

THEY RAISED IT TO $7000!!

 

Smiley Very Happy

 

For those of you paying attention, that's a 125% increase from the SL, 77 days after account opening

 

Next step:  After this statement cuts and is paid I'm going to call and see about upgrading it to QS

 

I'm a very happy camper right this minute Smiley Happy


Congrats on the awesome limit!

If your wife has not actually applied for a Cap One card, I wouldn't assume she's blacklisted. I burned them and I was approved for a card, before I was even discharged, for $500 and no credit steps.

Yeah, but while there may be an outside chance, it's a FAIRLY safe bet...she comes up empty on the Prequal, and Cap One is definitely one of the shiny new IIB accounts on her CRA's - there are plenty of other options, I'm going to hold on Cap one for her until next April at a minimum

Re: Working my Rebuild!

I had no prequalified offers, and still don't. And, if she's blacklisted, it won't be a hard pull. Most people who've been approved by Cap One after bankruptcy don't get any prequalified offers.

A pre-qual is not needed to qualify for a Capital One card. Plenty of people have burned Cap1 and then are able to get right back in. Like stated above, if she is blacklisted they won't pull her credit.

I am enrolled in credit steps - I'll post another update once the card hits that 5th statement Smiley Wink

Re: Working my Rebuild!

Update!

 

Funniest thing happened last week - I realized the monitoring product I was using from EQ sucked so I cancelled it - went with CCT instead, so now I have real FICO's for y'all's viewing pleasure:

 

ME - 7/15/2016

EQ - 673

EX - 667

TU - 660

 

SHE - 7/15/2016

EQ - 674

EX - 649

TU - 631

 

not sure why her EX and TU are lagging, but if I had to guess I'd say that's where Fingerhut reported her (legitimately) 30 days late right before we filed, and Fingerhut was all hers  Smiley Sad

Re: Working my Rebuild!

Another update! (I'm just rotten with updates recently, aren't I?)

 

I was on Cap One reviewing transactions, when I saw the large, green, shiny, candy-like "Chat Now" button...I know I had planned to wait until my next statement...but it was so shiny...and large...and green...and candy-like...I tried to resist...really, I did...but my mouse seemed to slowly travel over the screen of it's own accord and before I realized...I had pressed it!

 

Fortunately I was then connected to a very nice customer service rep who was sympathetic to my plight, and was able to help...

 

My non-shiny no-AF Platinum card is now a shiny-new no-AF Quicksilver card!!

(I also asked for an APR reduction, but that was a no-go)

 

Cash back here I come!  Whee!!

Re: Working my Rebuild!

With those scores, I think both you and your wife should apply for NFCU cash rewards card. They are bk friendly and will grow with you.

Barclay is going to want to see 6-12 months of payment history. I have no idea on Alliant and their unsecured products.
