Re: ??? for those who got a 2nd Cap One account

I got my first account in 12/2008 and after credit steps it's now at $4000.  No rewards, perks or annual fee.

 

I applied and received another in 7/2009 and after credit steps was $1500 until yesterday, now $2500.  Yes, rewards but annual fee (which has paid for itself with all the gift cards I ordered).

 

I did have a Cap One history before these 2 cards where I either closed them or they fell off my reports.  But to answer your question, no, the second one was definitely lower than the first...by a lot in my opinion.

They matched my highest limit card with them on my third card. Currently have a 1%/2% rewards card with them, a secured card, and a Sony Visa.

First limit was $1500, second one was $750.  Second one got an auto CLI to $3000 after 4 months, first one is stuck at $1500.

1st cap one was $300/now $500 since 1/2008....second in 4/2008 was $500 went to $750 and last year got an increase to $3250.00. I think its probably time to close out the $500 one...but it's my oldest cc account.
