No more Cap One!

I've been reading posts where people have been able to PC a Cap One platinum "step" card to a "regular" (prime) Cap One. They have previously told me that my card wasn't eligible for that, but I could apply for a different CC w/3 HP, which I would not do.

 

Since others have been able to PC their rebuilders, I decided to call them. I called the Escallations Dept. (800) 707-0489.

 

After 1 1/2 yrs and major improvement in my credit report and FICO, they said that my acct wasn't eligible for a PC or CLI. They offered to lower my interest rate on the piddly $500 card with a 0 balance. Ridiculous.

 

I told her that Cap One refused to recognize the improvement in my credit since I got the card by either converting to a better CC w/rewards and/or giving me a CLI. So, I closed my acct.

 

I am grateful that they helped me to rebuild, but the time has come for me to move on. Seeing that $500 card on my CR was like a thorn in my side.

The thorn is gone! Yay! Smiley Tongue

I do not blame you one bit for doing this. Their loss...

Re: No more Cap One!

Re: No more Cap One!

This is EXACTLY where I am with them.  I have a dispute outstanding so once that's over, that account is getting closed.  Been with them since 1998 and every time I CLI, I'm not eligble and I'm not able to PC to a new card.  Yet, they charge me $59 every year.

 

I went ahead and did an app since 'that's the only way I could get a different card" for their Cash Rewards cards.  I applied 9/1 and as of right now it's pending and in some sort of manual underwriting that should take "up to 15 business days."  I'm not sure what kind of systems they have, but's already ridiculous in my book.

 

I'm a few weeks away from putting CapOne out to pasture.  If I get denied for the Cash Rewards Signature Visa, I'm done with this company FOREVER.

I was one of the lucky ones...

 

Started with a $500 "Platinum" card in 2008. Recieved an automatic CLI in 2009 to $4750. Requested a PC in 2012 to a Venture1...

 

I'm not going to use it often, but I didn't want the annual fee on the "Platinum".

 

Congrats on removing that thorn though! I was going to close my account if they didn't grant me the product change.

FICO: 754, (Walmart TU, 9/4/13)
Wallet: AMEX Gold, and cash.

You're one of the exceptions to the Cap One rule! Lucky you! Smiley Happy

 

The same thing happened w/ me as w/ your wife: I just got approved for $10k with Citi (and didn't even need to call or recon!). What am I doing keeping this $500 card around? It was like clutter on my credit report.

I wonder why some people are able to do this and others aren't. I know it's not my FICO or CR. It would have been nice if they had been willing to do this with me. I would like to have had a Venture/Cash Rewards card with them. Oh well, I'm set in the credit card dept.! Smiley Happy
