Capital One Monkey Button Works - Even on Credit Steps

So I decided to use the luv button on my Cap1 for a second time, last time I receive 7-10 type of message and was denied. This morning I decided to hit it again and was approved for a $1,000 increase. This was a 750 initial credit step card, then bumped up to 1250 at 7th Statement. 15 months later and got this CLI so it's good to know that their new rebuilders can grow.

 

PS. I am ~18 post chapter 7 discharge.

Congrats 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Capital One Monkey Button Works - Even on Credit Steps

That's awesome!  Congrats and definitely good to know, my two Cap1 cards are both Credit Steps, a $1000 Plat MC headed for $1500 and a $500 Cash Rewards headed for $750.  I hope they give me more on the Cash Rewards (soon to be QuickSilverOne) in November when they auto PC it since I use that one more.  Right now I'm sitting close to max on both, taking advantage of 0% until March (and killing my UTIL in the process) Smiley Wink
