Thanks BBS that’s a good idea except I was hoping for the sub and because I need to use the low limit Cap1 card for general spend for about a week each month in order to do AZEO. Most of my other cards have really close reporting dates. Both of my other Cap1 cards report on the 15th. I’ve had problems with PenFed reporting in a timely manner too so I only use it once a month and pay it off early in the cycle. I guess I could shuffle some due dates but I’ve got a pattern now and that’s a lot of work. I guess I’ll just keep checking the prequal.
Sounds to me like AZEO overkill! Do you really need to optimize score every month....
...Anyway AZEO keeps them higher and that helps get more accounts which over time will make them higher still. That’s why I do what I do. It’s my new silly hobby I guess.
I love this. Score chess... everyone's silly hobby 'round these parts.
I have 80k unsecured and 35k secured and just prequal for my choice of card.
That would put me over $100k unsecured and close to $150k secured with car loan.
They must have a pretty high exposure limit.
A Whopping 2700 between 3 cards
QS1 opened in 1/16 @SL 500, now 900
Platinum, now QS opened @500, now 850
GM WEMC(), opened 9/16 now 750
I use them for small one off's purchases now and online shopping. I use my 10 and 15K limit Navy cards for daily use(along with disco and AMEX).
I've been contemplating rolling my QS into my Venture, but I'm leery of crossing the $20K barrier because I know I won't "use" it and I don't want the CLD that might result!
I'm somewhat nervous about letting my now-combined Quicksilver Visa go over $20K too (it's currently $16k following the merger with the next available CLI date being at the end of December or early January), even though I use it fairly actively and I'm planning to do some BT's to concentrate my card payments onto fewer, lower-interest cards including the QS.
My overall exposure with Cap1 is just over $20k, while my revolving exposure to everyone is just over $147k. I started with a Cap One Platinum, PC to QS, then PC that to Savor. Its probably why my limit refuses to go much higher, but I really don't want to get rid of that account since I've had it for 5+ years. My other accounts with them are a QS and a Venture. I combined the Venture into the QS, so currently only have 2 accounts with them.
If you want to check for PC offers, go here: https://verified.capitalone.com/sic-ui/#/esignin?Product=Card&Action=ProductUpgrade
PCs with Capital One are treated as though you are just changing the rewards structure, so it does not reset CLIs or any other similar clocks. They spell it out pretty clearly on the page, basically noting your limit, APR, and other factors remain the same, just what you get as a reward or a change to annual fee is what will change, if applicable.
