Re: Capital One Holding me Back?!?

[ Edited ]

I had  a Cap1 Secured Platinum Card as my only card for eight months when I applied for my Amex Cards.

I had a secured credit line of $2000. I paid in full every month with a 10% monthly usage.

 

A lot of people knock Cap1 but they were the only ones who would give me a credit  card that reported to all three Credit Bureaus.

Cap 1 was the key tool that was essential to rebuilding my credit.

 

They do not give you CLI's unless you deposit more money. 

Cap 1 also does not do a product change from secured to unsecured you have to apply for a new unsecured card after a year of good history with the unsecured card.

 

 

 

Amex Zync NPSL 9/12, Amex CostcoTrue Earnings $10K 9/12
Amex BCE $3K 9/12 (Amex Back Dated to 1983)
