Quicksilver has me using Capital One a lot more

I find myself using my Cap 1 card now that it has 1.5% Versus Freedom and Discover IT for everything except Gas now that I have the 1.5%, I know half a percent is not a lot but its 50% more so I will take that for now

Try doing it through Facebook. I did it told them it was my oldest account tried to upgrade on my account and it said non available on my account. I told them I didn't want to apply for it but seeing as it's my oldest account . I wanted to use there card but I had other reward cards that benefited me more. They texted me back and said they would escalate my requst and I would get a call. A very nice lady called it took less then 5 minutes.
