I applied for the Capital One card when I first joined this forum, but was denied due to limited income. I now make a bit more money and will make even more in the next couple of months. I have been thinking about trying to apply again, but I am not quite sure. Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks.April 28, 2012 at 1:21 pm #2935
The first time you applied was more than 6 months ago right? Have you been approved for other cards? Has your scored improved since then? Do you have a lot of credit inquiries on your report?April 28, 2012 at 10:48 pm #2936
It has been more than six months. I have not gotten any new cards. My score has improved about 14 points and I have about 4 inquires right now.May 11, 2012 at 4:19 pm #2937
Did you end up applying? If, so how did it go?May 11, 2012 at 4:39 pm #2938
I have decided to wait a few more months. In about 3 months I will be finished with college and should have a much better income. Also in waiting a few other inquiries should fall off. Therefore, I have decided to apply in August.May 11, 2012 at 11:40 pm #2939
Good plan! By the way, congratulations on finishing college!May 12, 2012 at 1:28 am #2940
Thanks. It feels like it has taken forever. I am pretty excited.August 4, 2012 at 12:35 am #2944
I finally started my new job about two weeks ago. I am going to be making much better money so I intend to get rid of the two baddies I have on my report and then I will be applying for a secured card again. Hopefully I will be able to do this within the next two months.August 4, 2012 at 12:39 am #2945
That’s great news Christie. Congrats. Keep us posted!August 4, 2012 at 12:41 am #2946
Thanks!August 11, 2012 at 9:42 pm #2947
Okay So I just applied again. All it said was” thank you your application is complete. You will be notified in 7-10 business days.” I called because I thought that was strange and so I called and the man said my application was still pending and I should wait for them to contact me with the amount of my security deposit. So we will see.August 12, 2012 at 1:47 am #2948
Christie, I’m crossing my fingers that you’ll be approved. You deserve it!August 12, 2012 at 3:53 am #2949
Thank you. I appreciate it. Maybe it is because of the huge income change from the last time. I am not sure, but like you i am keeping my fingers crossed.August 21, 2012 at 12:37 am #2950
any news on your application Christie?August 21, 2012 at 3:37 am #2951
You must be psychic lol! I got my letter today saying I have been approved with the 49 dollar fee. I will be sending my payment tomorrow, but I wasn’t sure if I should send more. I know this card will not grow with me and I will not get my money back, but I know it will help. I don’t think a $200 limit will look that great so I was wondering if there is a reasonable amount I should send in.
