Re: Capital One Venture: Ugly duckling

Cap1's image card is pretty sweet. Does venture support it? I've got 3 different designs I love on my QS.

Like I said, I was expecting something more sturdy and maybe more credit card looking?  

 

As for scores, I only had 2 small collections totallying $556, and 82% utilization.  I PFD'd the collections and paid down my cards to 2% utilization and it was GAME: SET: MATCH!!!!  If you are looking to do likewise, hangout in the REBUILDING CREDIT thread.

yep if those are the only two baddies you have and they were removed from your credit report plus bringing credit utilization down to 2% from 82%, that will do it, nice scores btw!

Re: Capital One Venture: Ugly duckling

I love the way mine looks but it is a little different since its a world mastercard and not a visa.

 

My logo and acct number are on the front so it looks more normal.

 

I like the reflective blue on the deep blue.

 

Just requested the metal version, crossing fingers but not holding breath.

Re: Capital One Venture: Ugly duckling

I have the V1 and I like how that one looks.   I wished the QS i had before looked as classy.

 

SM is sparkly, but very ho-hum.   My current bestlooking card is Cash+...that thing is metallic and shiny in person...much better than the pics!
