Escaping Capitol One

I have closed my secure card that I have had with them for 3+ years. , the rep didn't even try to save me when I mention I am in process of evenually closing all 4 of my cedit cards with caption one. Shows you how much the CSR department cares about customer retention.  Funny thing is he introduced him self even as a senior account analyst supervisor. 1 down 3 to go and 3k back in my pocket.

Re: Escaping Capitol One

I want to close my card, but they keep waiving the annual fee.  Until they stop doing that I will keep it open.



Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!

Great Job, I did the same thing back in Feb yep and your right they don't even care.  When I closed my HSBC account the same day at least the rep there tried to talk me out of it.  That was before CrapOne purchased HSBC's accounts.

 

Becareful when closing that the accounts you close are not your oldest accounts.

 

Take care and good job killing off that bank from your wallet.

Re: Escaping Capitol One

I opened mine in June and plan to keep it open until 6/2014 (may close earlier but not planning on it). I dont like having cards open for less than 2 years.  Granted they will have my funds during this time and its not doing anything for me but thats ok.  The card has been useful and will close it as needed.
