So I recently had a little bump in my scores this past month and decided to check out cap ones pre-qual to see if any new offers came up. Only the qs1 came back (which I already have). I figured to hell with the inquiries and app'd for the venture one and was instantly approved for a $2k line! This is by far my biggest starting line. My fico scores are 651eq, 643tu and 649ex. 10% utilization, no missed payments in 2+ years, 3 baddies (student loans), 2 years aaoa, and 5 inquiries (car loan shopping). Hopefully that'll help anyone on the fence with a similar credit profile.
Congratulations on the approval! Use it wisely!!!!
