Captial one venture approved

Hi guys,

4 days ago I applied for cap one Venture and it went pending review and after calling them today they asked some security question and just now I got a notification via email that I got approved for cap one venture for 5,000. wasn't expecting this low sl as on one of my card the minimum starting limit is 9,000. With 3 hard pulls geting 5,000 was not a great deal. I regret that why did I did that 😏...any suggestions for knocking on the backdoor for CLI? If yes, then what would be the best reason to tell them.

Mu scores are 750sh on all bureaus
Thank you so much

Congrats on the approval, 5k that is a good starting point.
What does the rest of your credit file look like?
You say you have 1 card with a 9K limit but if you are using it to the max then that may be a reason.
So if you could give a little more details, then I feel certain we could offer better advice.

Re: Captial one venture approved

Congratulations on the approval.

I really would like the Savor card as me and my bf go out dining so often it would be great to have. It sucks that Cap 1 pulls all 3. Im not looking to apply now but hopefully in a couple of months when my scores are worthy I will take my last dive into Cap 1. My other thought was maybe Amex but I have a collection account that is holding me back from getting an account with them 😩

Congrats on the approval! 5k isn't a bad SL but without more information on your credit profile, its sort of hard to say. Definitely need to know your cards, current limits, AAoA, any baddies, etc.

Re: Captial one venture approved

So you have decent CL's on all cards and credit.
What is your UTIL% at?
Also, although the amount of inquires is not particularity high it may have caused them to hold back a little.

Re: Captial one venture approved

With Cap1 - you can request a CLI every 6 months. Your UTI is at 17% so that's one thing that may be holding your scores down around 10-20 points. I would bring the UTI down under 8%. Also, do you have any loan? (car, mortgage, student, anything considered a loan). If not, I would do an SSL.
