Cap1 is Showing LOVE for the Holidays!

Just logged into my dog Capital One Platinum (ex. Orchard Bank) and noticed they finally upped my credit limit from $300 to $500! I figured I'd strike while the iron is hot and guess what.... got upgraded to quicksilver; no annual fee and 1.5% cash back... my first real rewards card!

FingerHut - $2,300 | Nordstrom Retail - $500 | Capital One QuicksilverOne - $500 | Credit One Bank Platinum - $450 | Victoria's Secret - $250

Current Scores: TU: 573, EX: 512, EQ: 584 (MPM Scores)

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?

Re: Cap1 is Showing LOVE for the Holidays!

Good for you ... Keep treating them right and your CL should keep going up. I think they are definitely embracing the holiday spirit - I just went from 1k to 3k a week ago (have had the card 5 months, used about 3k over that time, no interest charged, and had zero balance when I asked for the CLI).

Re: Cap1 is Showing LOVE for the Holidays!

Was this the secured Capital One Platinum you upgraded to QuickSilver? or was it the unsecured version?

Congrats Smiley Happy

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

- Rhonda Byrne
