Capital One Platinum Approval

Cant believe i actually got approved!!!  I tried their pre-qualification site and they recomended the Plat and QS.  I got approved for a 300.00 CL.  The CL seems so small and im shocked they even approved me at all. Is the 300.00 CL typical or someone who is in the beginning stages of rebuilding?

Likely their credit steps program.

Congrats.  Every 6 months ask if they don't give you a cli.  They may offer you a second card in a few weeks perhaps a QS one.

Re: Capital One Platinum Approval

Congrats! And yes, $300 is the typical starting limit!

For many of us who rebuilt using Capital One, you are able to request a CLI in a couple months - try after your 2nd or 3rd statement. At your 6th month (or 6th statement), your Credit Steps increase will kick in. They'll probably send you an email saying you'll be bumped up to $500 after 6 months. But it can be -and often is- more than that. 

 

My data point with Cap One was $300 to $800 (month 3) to $1,300 (month 6)

 

After that, you can request a credit limit increase every 6 months. 

NFCU: $25,000; PenFed Power Cash Rewards: $3,500; PenFed Gold: $2,500; Capital One: $2,300; Nordstrom Visa: $2,000; Credit One: $1,250
Amazon: 800; Kohls: $1,500

Re: Capital One Platinum Approval

was it unwise of me to just ask for the Plat instead of the QS?

Re: Capital One Platinum Approval

Congrats on your approval, though the SL may seem small it can definitely grow to a nice CL and lead to better SL's down the road. For your future approvals you may want to consider posting in the approvals section of the forum. Once again congrats on your approval.

Not at all, your better off starting with a non AF card and working your way up. In a few months app for the QS1 if you like.

Congratulations on your new Platinum Card! It is fine that you applied for the Platinum. 

 

If you want rewards on the card, others have had success product changing (upgrading) their Platinum cards to the regular Quicksilver card (no-annual). Some have been able to do it in a couple months, others three months, others 6 months, etc. You would just constantly check with Cap 1 customer service to see if  your card is eligible for the upgrade. Once you upgrade, your account number, account age, etc. all stay the same. You simply will have a card that now carries 1.5% cashback and no annual fee. 

 

Also, if you want to apply for a second Cap 1 card, you must wait six months from the approval date of your Platinum. But many, including myself, have apped for and received a second and (what we may consider an) upgraded product from Cap 1. 

 

Good luck on your re-build and keep up the good work.
