6 HPS?


3 for the visa, 3 for the MC

 

When you apply for any cap1 product, they HP Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion. 

 

So now you'll have 2 on each report just from cap1. 


I would steer clear from Cap1 after this OP. Hopefully a call in to them will net you a card but i'd give BofA secured some thought.

Even though I already have an unsecured BofA card?

That is stuck @ $200. They're more likely to approve for secured and you up the deposit over the course of a year.

 

You know what, i'm not sure if theyre still doing this but last May I apped for a BofA unsecured and they countered my with a secured card. Go to a branch and see if they still do that.

 

That way your not wasting a HP you should get either or.
