Probably nothing too exciting for the next 6 months.  I feel like that's about how long it took for anything to actually happen when Chase took over Washington Mutual.  I'm sure that as we get closer to the end of the year, the board will be flooded with people who either love or hate Capital One based upon how they change things around.

TU (5/14/14): 796 (Inquiries; 8/23/13)
EQ (3/23/14): 791 (Inquiries: 8/23/13)
EX (9/24/13): 780 (Inquiries: 7/2/12; 11/20/12; 7/30/13; 8/23/13)

Goals: No new inquiries for 2014, 800 for all CRs by 12/31/14

So I just refreshed my EX report and noticed that a CO BB account from a few years is now being reported as Cap1/Bstby. Kind of curious if I could GW or dispute it. I apologize if I appear to be hijacking your thread just starting to see a lot of threads about Cap1 and BB.

Which is right about the time I can ask for another CLI.  I bet nothing exciting happens!!  HSBC/BB was very good at granting the increases.  Cap1 probably won't be so generous.  Not liking this.   :smileysad:
