PenFed approved me for the Travel Rewards AMEX with $5000 limit. TU at time was 670 with 38 inquires. I still can't believe I was approved!

Capital one is not a prime lender for the fact that prime lenders have high credit limits min with a reg score 5k max 50k
Capitalnone have petti limits like 500 for a month of starbucks coffe
Well, as I've posted before, my two Capital One cards have limits of $30K and $15K. Those were the limits they started with, and I never asked for a CLI on them and never got one (although they did reduce the APR without being asked). I think it is just the fact that people starting out, or with credit troubles, are able to get to credit from Capital One (and not from others) and so get toy limits. People with better credit history can get high limits as much as with other issuers.

I kinda gotta disagree, I can't consider any of their cards truly Prime since they don't even show the level of trust for their applicants by pulling all 3. Which would be a good in business sense, but this is not the industry's norm.
I understand but it is a sort of strange argument. So super-prime lenders should maybe not pull any reports to demonstrate trust?
Presumably the reason most lenders don't pull all three is cost. And because most of the base IS subprime (I agree with this, just not with all cards being subprime) Capital One must feel that the extra cost is worth it to minimize risk with the dodgy clients! And once they do this for that segment, they do it for all, because they cannot tell which segment you really are (and may still want all the info even if they could).
And even lenders like Amex will pull additional reports if they view the application as borderline.
The whole process of pulling just one is very strange, a gamble from the lenders viewpoint. Fans of financial responsibility by banks should want all banks to pull all reports all the time!
What I find amusing is that on some threads people have been saying the high lending standards of PenFed and others is great, it's good that people get rejected. Capital One is doing the same sort of thing and getting dinged.
