What are my chances?

On getting approved for a Cap One builder card? I have a Cap One account in 2003, which of course, charges off but I paid it a few years ago.

I dunno ... I got approved for a piddly $300 with them with the scores in my siggie. But your EX is a bit on the low side and IIRC, that's the first one they pulled (they pull all three, but the other two showed up a day or two later on TC for me).

Did you hit the pre-qual page and see if there's an offer there?

I'd do it. Or I'd try Orchard/HSBC. A lot of people here hate them (but then, most people hate Cap One, too), but they gave me a $300, and a CLI to $500 on activation.

So far, so good.

Best of luck!! Keep us posted!!

Oh, and I forgot to mention: We, too, had a CO with them (paid it days after it COed), and that was back in '05. So Cap One does, indeed, forgive!!
