I use there card a couple times a month for small purchases and as soon as i use it i pay it. can anybody help me thank you so much.
You have Capital One, Ollo, and Disco. It's time to cancel Credit One. It's a card that's just meant to build or rebuild and you get rid of it once you have cards with better companies.
Make sure you check after it's canceled that they don't hit you with any extra fees and that it's actually canceled.
Hi OP and welcome
Yes, we can all help you. In unison, we say, "get rid of CreditOne."
You don't need them!
^^^ agreed, rid yourself of it ASAP.
If you've already paid the yearly fee, keep the card until just before you're due to get charged it again and then call and cancel. Ask for a letter to be sent confirming cancelation, and that it shows you owe a zero balance. Keep that letter with this year's taxes, as a CYA because credit one will occasionally do stupid things and it's best to have proof of account closure.
They are a low level rebuilder company but not the worst I've seen. You have better cards now and no longer need them - time to move on.
They are awful. First close the account. and the phone call goes like this "yes, I really want to cancel", "no there's nothing you can do to keep me", "JUST CLOSE IT ALREADY". Secondly, they send you letters for the next year about how you need to reopen that card and they are holding your awesome credit limit for you. (You burn those too) Third, you sit back and enjoy life without Credit One.
