Thank you guys

Was here beating my head on walls thinking weather I should or not apply for a new CC.
Well... What's life if you don't take any risks?

I did! And got approved, Cap One $300 CL

Now... Is there anything I should know about them? Any secrets, tricks, card on sleeves?...

Re: Thank you guys

Congrats on the new card!!

 

Cap One exec office in a few months is the way to get a CLI.

 

Google CEO capital one email and shoot off an email to them asking for a CLI and such.  A zillion threads on that here on the forums.

 

Just let it garden for a few months and don't carry a balance. Smiley Happy

First Congrats on your approval.... 

Hopefully they put you in the credit step program

 

Keep your utilization around 10%

In 9 months contact the EO and ask for a CLI.

Finally take care of your card and watch it blossom into many more.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
