Re: Help With My Credit Card!!!

If you have already paid the initial AF for the Credit One card then I suppose what's done is done at this point. I would listen to your pops and hold on to the card for a year and let it help both your AAOA and UTL and then axe it right before the AF renews. After which NEVER look back.

I would continue to pump money into that BOA secured card in order to build your CL. I'm pretty sure that if handled responsibly the BOA card will eventually graduate and then grow with you quite nicely.

As far as CLI's and Capital One go, don't get your hopes up. Although I believe that If you are in the credit steps program than after 6 months of good payment history they give you a $250 CLI and that's the end of that.

1. My as well keep Credit One, really in the early stages of rebuilding Credit One is not THAT terrible, at least you know you can get $100-$200 CLI Every 6 months unlike some other rebuilders like your capital one that does get credit steps $300 up to $500 at 6 months no lates or over credit line. but then it will sit!

2. Push all money through Bank Of America, when you get that unsecured at 9-12 months, THEN close Credit One.

3. If you shop at Express you should keep the card, the rewards are great and they will start to give CLI after 6 months, you can sask also but they are known to be very good about auto cli and it has no annual fee so you should just keep.

Re: Help With My Credit Card!!!

I think you should stop the habit that closing account like that......I mean if you really want to s rebuild your credit then number one thing you need to let all of your current account open at least for two years then after that consider to closed some account come with AF. Let your acc aged don't just open some acc for a few months then closed out like that. It's look horrible in your credit profile.

Re: Help With My Credit Card!!!

I ruined my credit in 2005 and i have been paying cash on everything until one day in jan of 2011 i finally got my first preapproval in the mail, for credit one! So i applied for it regardless of the large fees... Got approved for $300... Few days later, a capital one plat preapproval came in and my gf told me to close the credit one and apply for cap one since the AF was only $59 (approved for $300) .... i close the credit one and its weird how i never saw it on any of my reports.... Anyway, fast forward, i used the capital one for one year and i got 7 cards this year... I think one or two cards is sufficient to build and good payment history and Capital one is the card that will help you get to where you wanna be in a year or two....

Hey NiNoMArksLA!

my .02 cents- keep the card if you don't mind the AF.  I used Credit One to build my credit.  In a year, if you feel differently, ax them then before the AF hits.  Plz, don't close any of your trade lines if they don't have an AF (Express).  The damage is already done with regards to AAoA and the HP.  Sock drawer it if you don't use it.  Let it age till it gets closed or until you decide to use it.  It will grow and help with future utility.
