Update on Capital One and Orchard Bank Merger

To all those curious to know what this merger means, I contacted Capital One.

 

Yes, you will get a new card with Capital One logo on it

Yes, your credit card numbers will stay the same (small amount of people will have a new number)

No, they WON'T combine the cards or the credit limits:

Adonis: I am sorry, you will be not able to link the credit limit of two Capital One accounts.

 

And here I was hoping they'd combine them so I don't have to keep this pitifully low limit orchard bank card!

Yeah and the former HSBC accounts will move over to the Capital One systems by early 2013, according to an acct manager.

It varies, the Best Buy cards are now being issued rebranded plastics as of October 2012. Anytime between now and early 2013 is my guess. My new Capital One RZMC arrives this week.
