I've  never had any problems with Cap1. And because they are my highest limit, I like them more! Smiley Wink

Re: Capitol One My second card with them..

nice plan.  i think i may try to app & combine cap1 again one day too.  i have a 500 card for 7 years.  someone shared a remarkable story in a recent thread where after 9 years he got a 15k cli on a cap1 card that had been stuck at 500 for like 9 years.  hard to imagine.  but now i'm thinking maybe i could wait another 2 years and try my luck?  LOL... i think i tried in 07 to reapp and was denied.  now i'm bit gunshy w/ cap1 and don't like the 3 hards much either.

 

in any case, you're more than half way there and you've got some nice increases to look forward to on your way!  good work.
