I have had a Cap One card since I was 16 (26 now...) and while I know other people have had major problems with them, I have never had any issue at all. Their customer service is always very friendly, never done any dirty tactics that other companies have to me, always been great. Then again its only a $500 limit card that I don't use unless I'm traveling and then I PIF, so I haven't really had a lot of chances for bad interactions with them.
New to the boards so I don't know what bk means....

Unless you aren't carrying a balance, I'm not sure why you wouldn't want to include them in a BK filing? Even then I have no doubt both will close your cards once they soft you and see that BK, If you are carrying a balance, I say flush em', especially BoA,

BofA sucks, I can't imagine them working with anyone! CapOne on the other hand seems to be okay, I opted out of a ratejack last year, but they didn't actually close the account, and I noticed the other day that I have an option to reactivate it. I'll prolly do that once it's close to paid off.
I've had no problems with BOA. I think they're fantastic!!

My foreclosed house was sold in april of 2009, and the bank is looking for thier 150K, plus i have the second mtg for 40k. My car is paid off and my cc are low 100 balances with 500 limits. I would like to keep my card b/c its the only positive credit right now. I might close them and start fresh after my bk discharges.
Sorry to hear that. I thought I read something about the balance of foreclosed homes were being foregiven through a government program. Or maybe it was for tax purposes only. I may have read it wrong. Try researching it.
If you don't have a large balance on the card, I would keep it. That will save you from having to apply for subprime cards with all those fees when you begin to rebuild your credit. Good luck!
