Sent you a PM for cap1

Ask them to waive the AF and triple limits on both cards

If they don't have rewards ask them to add them 

Good luck

Any chance I can ask them to graduate this card instead of closing it out

I don't have any experince with CapOne, but it's only a phone call.  Why not? Nothing ventured - nothing gained.

CapOne doesn't graduate their secured cards. If I were you, I'd pay another AF and keep it until the month before the AF comes up in 2014. You should be fine by then, and its only $30. I'm assuming its not too bad of a bite with as much as you've deposited. I also have a maxed out capone secured card lol.
