I just paid off all my maxed out cards bringing my balances on everything to zero. My current equifax socre is 600 and according to fico simulator will jump to 700-740, once everything is reported.Can I call Capitolone and ask them to combine and then convert my card into something better?Should I take the opportunity of having a much better FICO score to apply for some decent cards(currently have BOA @ 19%, CapOne 19% and 14% and Chase @ $14% & GEMB paypal buyer credit @19%)?I'm new to how credit works in the US (though learned it's not good to apply for a lot) and would appreciate some help.
