They only allow 2 Cap Ones, not including the co-branded cards. Their CS reps are notorious for giving erroneous information. If you have 2 psnl cards with them and app for a 3rd, they will reportedly deny your app and not do any HP.



So to get a venture I would need to close one of my cash rewards cards correct? I have 2 cash reward cards and 1 sony card

Re: Capital one How many cards can you have?

Why don't they let you merge the two cards together? I have two accounts with them, but I don't wanna manage two accounts for measly credit lines of $750 & $500. It's not like their exposure would change or anything. Ugh.

[ Edited ]

I have the cash rewards and platinum cards. I went on their site to see if I prequalified for another card but only the two I have came up. I decided to apply for their MTV visa since I need a visa. Instantly approved for $1000, now I can shred my orchard bank card which is stuck at $300!

Store (including cobranded) are generally not included in these arbitrary counts.   The stores would not allow the bank to deny credit to a good customer because they have another account.

Re: Capital one How many cards can you have?

Again, like I posted earlier, I had 3 accounts with Capital One up until 3 weeks ago.  I had a No Hassle Rewards Platinum, MTV, and Cash Rewards. I'm not sure where this supposed 2 card limit is coming from.

AMEX Blue Cash - $15k, Lowes/GECRB - $10K, PNC - $10K, CIti Diamond Preferred - $10K, Home Depot/Citi - $7590, Best Buy Store/HSBC - $7400, Citi Platinum Select - $7150, Best Buy RZMC/HSBC - $5750, Dillards/GECRB - $4350, Discover More - $3600, Cap 1 Cash Rewards - $3000, Amex HHonors - $2000, State Farm - $2000, Cap 1 MTV - $1500

The MTV does not count in the 2 card limit.  It is a cobranded store card.

What's a random card.    Pick them from a big deck of CC?

Re: Capital one How many cards can you have?

honestly i don't even know what it is, cash rewards maybe?  I've had them both since 2004, never changed the limit and never merged them.
