Against good sound advice that I got here, I just applied..... I couldn't wait for some reason. I've been working hard to repair my credit and being approved for the BCP, I went for it.
Just got approved, $1500. Not too bad, I probably would have gotten a higher limit when my BCP reported, but oh well. I'm happy to finally get a Freedom.
That's higher than either of my Cap1 cards and I'm sure it will grow faster than Cap1
