I'm kinda in love with Capital One right now!!

First of, I'm rebuilding my credit from stupid mistakes as a kid. I've had a secured card with them for about 6 months now. About 3-4 weeks ago I was approved for a Journey card and QuicksilverOne card.  With low limits Journey was $500 and QS1 $300.  I asked for a CLI when I first got them. They only increased my Journey by $100 but nothing for the QS1.  I read alot of ppl getting success through facebook.  So I chatted with them last thursday and someone gave me a call, they couldnt do any increases cause theyre both new accounts.  I asked if i could PC any of them to a travel card, so they said we'll call you back to see what they can do.  Today some nice lady called me and said "Were able to convert your Journey to a VentureOne Visa Platinum card!!" I'm so stoked since you need excellent credit for that and I'm nowhere near excellent credit.  I asked if i can still get the sign up bonus but she said she cant since its a product change and not a new account. But said she was gonna give me 5000 courtesy miles!! I'll take it.  Hopefully I can ask someone else to give me the bonus miles plus a credit limit increase since can't really do anything with a $600 limit.  Thanks to this forum I never thought I'd be able to get credit again but reading everyones stories gave me confidence again!

Thanks!! Not sure.. From the website it says you need Excellent credit for Both Ventures. But I could be wrong. I didnt even know they offered Platinum versions

The Venture One earns 1.25 miles per dollar spent, as opposed to the Venture, which earns 2. However, it does not have an annual fee, which the normal Venture Card does.

 

Congrats by the way, that is really awesome to see!

Did the lady tell you that she had to check to see if you had any offers before doing the product change? I have two QuickSilver cards and would like to at least get one of them changed to a Venture One

I literally just go approved for the journey on Feb 19 2014. She said I had no offers since it was a new card. But she said she'll see what she can do. I didn't think they'd pull through since they were right it was a new card. So I was super surprised it went through. They got me excited cause at first they said it was gonna be a VISA Signature haha but they called back saying they made a mistake and its just a VISA Platinum. Darn haha

I just spoke with someone from the EO office and she said that I couldn't do a product change. I just sent a message via Facebook. Hopefully I can get someone who is nice like yours and he or she will do a pc. Plus, I dont want to pay the $59 and $39 dollar annual fee.
