Pre-approved for CapOne Platinum card

So I've been approved for yet another card, CapOne Platinum. I'm an UA on one card and I have my own. So........................should I? It would give me another line of credit. 0% APR until May 2014 and higher credit limit after making first 5 payments on time. I'm leaning towards going for it. I'm currently not carrying any balances and I'm getting that credit card "itch" that people talk about. lol Oh, and no AF.

Re: Pre-approved for CapOne Platinum card

Normally I would ask you your credit such as any baddies length of credit history etc. IMHO no don't go for it. First of all your only allowed 2 Cap1 cards not counting cobranded cards. Looking at your signature you have some cards that will grow with you. Cap1 will do 3 hard pulls more then likely for a low limit card with no rewards. Follow the advice on here if you don't need it don't apply. All you will end up doing is making the other card companys your with nervous. As always YMMV.

IMHO and not sure if other cards in sig are yours or AU but you don't need another CAP1 card garden what you have until you see another lender you would like to have :smileywink:
