Welcome to the forums!
Thanks for posting your story, along with the specifics. This helps people to see that, while there are certain things that are generally true, apping for credit can be a YMMV sort of thing. Getting approved for a particular card doesn't just boil down to scores, but to the specific credit profile, which is different for each individual. Cap1 liked what they saw and gave you a non-toy card. Congratulations! Enjoy your new Venture and BCE and treat them well. And welcome to the Amex family, too.
How did you get approve for venture with 2 other capital one cards I though the max was 2. Gives me hope
the venture card is the best card offered by capitalone right?
Never give up or surrender
Congratulation on your determination
