If you're new to credit, it'll be very hard to obtain a rewards card. Why don't you try their platinum card (the one with no AF)?

Re: Escaping Capitol One

I read that one was the one for limited history!  aaaahhhh...should I try to apply for that one instead??

 

I was just approved for $1200 CL on the Amazon card so I thought I would have a shot at the Cap 1.

Re: Escaping Capitol One

If you have whats commonly referred to as a "thin file" (not mcuh in your credit history) they do have a "newcomer card"... they have a pre-qualify site on their main page, that MAY be an indicator as to what they MIGHT extend to you... they have 2 different cash rewards cards, one is for average creditand the other for excellent credit... before you go crazy applying remember that they pull ALL 3 buresus and inquiries can lower your score each time you apply... their prequalify link will not affect your score..

Re: Escaping Capitol One

Sorry I don't want to jack this thread.

[ Edited ]

I would avoid applying for anything CAP1 after this. CAP1 is one of the few lendes that pulls 3 CR when they consider you for any of their cards.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 764 (EQ) 732 (EX) 757 (TU) 9/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)
Tradelines: Capital One QS NPSL (5.0k) | Discover IT (6.0k) | Walmart Mastercard (5.0k) | Chase Freedom NPSL (7.3k) | Citi Simplicity (9.3k)

Re: Escaping Capitol One

@ sitori, remember you "want" to add something, but credit should be a matter of "need"... are those scores in your signature fico scores ? you may do well to hold out a little longer and try the Discovecard "pre-qualify link" . If those are real ficos, you may break the 700 mark before too long resulting in better overall odds of being approved for a "prime" card

yes it is a matter of need...I NEED history, that is all.  lol

 

How do I know if they're FICO? They're from my most recent credit report. I think I can pull it up and see what it says exactly....

You can only get a FICO score from a lender or here at myfico.com. Scores offered direct from the credit agencies are not FICO scores but FAKO scores.
