Cap 1 Balance Transfer Pre-approval offer

[ Edited ]
I couldn't resist I tried the pre-approval offer button at cap 1.com and I got an offer for no fee balance transfer at 8.9% with 0% on purchases until 12/08 and 8.9% thereafter.
 
Anyway so I app'd and was approved (only $300 :smileysad: It says final CL based on further review of app, might go higher?) Not bad considering I still have a charge off from them reporting. After 4 months I'll get a cli probably to $500.
 
I know the horror stories about cap 1, but DW has had them for a while and they've been giving her some decent increases for someone with only 5 months history.
 
Anyway it made sense with me to transfer the balance from applied bank at 19% to cap 1 8.9%. I'll scrap applied after it goes through. Those monthly $10 fees, etc. are too much.
 
Now I'll have to see what hit I take score wise. I'll keep you updated and let you know who they pulled from.
