I've been working hard on rebuilding my credit and have been able to go from the low-500s to almost 700 in a little less than a year (a good amount of that to paying a ton of money up front on a secured card.
Now that I have been starting to get some better offers and limits, I am hoping to take advantage of Capital One's account combo and CLI programs. I currently have two accounts with them- a quicksilverone with a 1500 limit and ventureone with a 2k limit. The 6month CLI dates on both are about two weeks apart from eachother.
My question is- is it possible to CLI both and then combine right after? Or will CapOne consider the combo a CLI and make me wait six months?
You can get a CLI on both cards (if approved of course) and immediately combine if you want to. Each card is independent of each other for CLI's. But once you combine the cards you have to wait 6 months for another CLI.
