Capital One Card

Hey guys.. just wanted your thoughts on this as I have never recieved a message like this before

I currently have 2 capital one cards both with $750 limits for over a year, I also have 2 other HSBC cards with crappy limits, a Jared Card with a $2,500 limit, and a Walmart Card with a $600 limit and Kohls with a $600 limit. Always pay on time ... yada yada.. my utlization is 17% of all my cards combined as currently reported to the credit beauru. 


My score was just ran by a lender the other day as I bought a new car and I had a 659 TU, 644 EQ and EX

 

Anyway....... to my point.. I applied for another Capital One card just to soley have another open credit line and transfer the balances over from the other higher APR cards and I go this message

 

"Notification of approval status will be typically sent in 7 to 10
business days; however, in certain circumstances it may take up to 15
days."

 

I do have a security alert on my credit report, however when I bought the car it wasn't an issue and didn't get no call for approval

 

Any idea if that means it is approved, denied or what it means? Thanks

Re: Capital One Card

Currently, you can only have 2 Cap1 cards unless it's a business card or co-branded product...i.e. Sony PlayStation card. If you have 2 Cap1 cards, usually they won't even pull your credit and the letter they send in the mail will be to the affect of: You've reached the maximum amount of cards.

 

Since Cap1 is acquiring HSBC, I wonder if the limit will change...but as of right now, 2 Cap1 cards are the max.

 

Hope this helps..

I have no idea what this means ~ but as far as I know you can have more than two Cap1 cards, in fact they seem to encourage you to have several.....

 

Can you call in and find out the application status ?

 

Did you say that you have a fraud alert on your reports ?   Or do you have them frozen ?

Re: Capital One Card

There was a recent thread and it appeared that the consensus was you could only have 2 CapitalOne cards unless it is a co-branded card

Re: Capital One Card

+1 to previous posts. A Cap One employee has posted here that you can only have 2 Cap One personal CCs, unless it's a co-branded card. The jury is still out as to whether or not they do a HP. One person said they didn't get a HP, but someone else said they did, so who knows. In order to app for a new Cap One, you would need to close one of your current cards.
