Closing Secured CAP1 - Deposit Return?

My CAP1 has served its purpose and I would like to have my $2K security deposit returned 

as quickly as possible without  jumping through too many hoops.

Any suggestions for a timely return ?

Is it acceptable to just run the balance up to the limit and then close the account or is that asking for trouble ?

AAoA is not an issue.

Discover More $750 11/12
CapitalOne Platinum Secured Card 2K 2/12 (Closed 12/12)
FICO: EQ = 804 EX = 802(Amex) TU = 801(Discover)

Re: Closing Secured CAP1 - Deposit Return?

you will have to call and demand a mgr.  Otherwise they will give you the two balance cycle bs.   Mgr was suppose to direct deposit my 3k back into the account I had on file , which they didn't ,and send a check a week later.

I closed my Cap1 secured via the chat with a rep. It took 5 minutes to close the account ,10-12 days for the deposit check. No pain at all.

Well that is encouraging.

I have read so many horror stories about "Peggy"

and not getting a check for months.

Never try to close an account with balance. 

 

PIF, close the account, and wait patiently for the deposit check.
