Just pay it down. Your UTIL will recover quickly. You don't want to ever have a card close to being maxed out. I believe the only thing creditors will see by doing a manual review of a hard pull is your high balance, which in relation to your credit limit will show it being higher. Try to get a CLI in the future and I think that would probably solve it.
Anyone think differently?

just don't max the card, and all should be good
After completely cleaning up my credit and getting some new credit and an auto loan, I had some "potentially negative information" posted on my report today. I'm just a little over my cc limit. I this something that people look at when they pull credit? Is Cap1 good at removing neg info?
It is only a "negative" issue if you are trying to buy sometime right now and really if we are talking about a $300 or $500 maxed out credit card and that's all you have... most are not going to even think twice about it... I mean how can you not max that out!!!
you pay on time and it reports next month new lower util if you pay it down or off. no biggie and you don't need to call Capital One, you don't need to worry about fees or increase in interest etc. unless you have "asked" to have Capital One accept charges that will take you over your limit, then they might charge you, but otherwise if it's just a few dollars and you didn't sign up for the over charging (Which I would NOT sign up for) no worries.
Pay it down and as soon as your report updates then your score will recover. The effects of maxing out a card do not stick around for long!
I have gone overlimit on my Crap1 card. As long as you haven't opted in for overlimit protection, they aren't allowed to charge you a fee. Crap1 won't care as long as you pay it off. If you are in credit steps, you will still get your auto CLI.
Some banks even like it, and will give larger CLI's later.
