Re: Shot my self in my foot
My guess is that it varies by the bank. Cap One is also famous for having both go-nowhere cards and cards that will grow.

I'd say that if anything, it varies according to what the Scary Voices tell lenders at any given moment.

btw, this is another good argument for sticking with 3 cards during the rebuilding phase, frustrating as it might be. Nothing worse than having a dozen of these turkeys clinging to your ankles. It makes me think of the Randy Quaid in-laws in National Lampoon' Christmas Vacation.
