I am so thrilled! I am 31 years old and destroyed my credit along with many others in my generation who went to college in the early 2000's. I was offered credit cards galore, didn't really understand how to use them responsibly, and before I knew it was in over my head. The stature of limitations has long since run out on these cards that I never paid off, and many of the banks who lent them to me no longer exist (Providian bank, for example). I am now a very responsible consumer who lives below my means with no debt aside from student loans. I have been paying those diligently for over 2 years and have seen little effect on my credit score. I was getting depressed about it until about 4 months ago when, to my shock, I was approved for a Capital One Platinum card with a $300 limit! I have been paying it off in full every month since, and lo and behold, my credit score went up 19 points! Today I decided to go ahead and apply for this card, and to my suprise, I was approved for a credit limit of $1000 with 0% apr until March 2013, despite my credit score of 589. I am beyond thrilled, as I am now confident that continuing to pay my balances in full every month, coupled with my student loans, my credit score should be above 600 by this time next year. I hope to have it in the 700 range within 2 years and finally not feel ashamed of my credit score. It is so true that paying your bills on time is the absolute best way to re-build credit. I am grateful to Capital One for giving me a chance to prove myself.

decided to apply for this card 5 months ago as it was close to Christmas and could use a little extra, got approved for a limit of $300. Which with my credit i was happy with. Made 4-6 payments a month as $300 doesn't go far and got an email today from Cap one saying congrats your limit has been increased to $3,300. Now i can actually use this to its full potential and get as much back on the 1.5% as possible as i like to pay off the balance every month.

Bear with me here, this is my first review on CK.
I have been working hard to rebuild my credit - as of October 2012, I was around 515. I had a lot of items in collection from my college years, and instead of paying them all off, I let them get closed. Then I waited for about 7 years for items to drop off. Yep, I haven't had good credit since I was 19-20 years old (I'm 38).
In September of 2012, I was able to purchase a car on my own with no co-signer (2011 Nissan Versa 1.8S Hatchback), and have never missed a payment. Additionally, I had an old First Premier Mastercard which was bought out by Capital One, and for the past few years, I had never missed a payment. I don't know if this made a difference or not, but my auto loan was through Capital One Auto Finance.
My First Premier (now Capital One Platinum) recently had a CL increase of $1000 - making the total available credit $1320 (that was out of the blue, btw, I didn't ask for it - but I had recently paid it off to under 20% utilization).
So CK recommended this card and said my chances of getting it were "Good" - so one day, while at work, I figured, "why not?" and applied for it.
Instantly approved for $3000. I haven't thought about asking for an increase right off the bat, but plan on using the card as my daily card and paying it off 80% every month to keep the 20% utilization.
I'm excited - and my due diligence about keeping my credit clean has paid off!

I just got my card like a week and a half ago and I've noticed it hasn't been reported on my credit yet. I had another credit card with my credit union I work for and it showed up I want to say a few days of me being approved. Anyone else have this issue? Thanks.

I am in process of credit rebuild....started off with Cap One Plat. card, made all payments on time, they increased balance, continued on "GOOD CREDIT AVE."...about a year 1/2 later I applied for this card (About 8 mos ago)...they gave me a $1000 CL....continued to use card....made payments on both and continued to be a good customer....They just increased my CL on this card to $3000....overall very impressed and the 0% intrest until dec. is very attractive...hopefully by then I can apply for a lower intrest card and not worry about the 22.9%....
Good Luck everyone

Had a CH-13 Bankruptcy discharged in March 2013 (after 5yrs). I applied for a Capital One secured the day I got my discharge papers. I was denied at first, since the bankruptcy discharge didn't appear on my credit report. I submitted my discharge letter and they approved me for $250 with $49 deposit. I deposited $300 to get me to $500. Three months later I put in another $250 to increase the balance to $750. Another three months and they increased my secured $100. I put in another $150 to make it $1,000. I applied for an Auto loan in December and was approved (to my surprise w/ a very good rate). I put an additional $500 on the secured card this March to give me $1,500. I applied for the Quicksilver card last week and was instantly approved for $3,000. My CK score is 630. I'm still impressed with Capital One.
There is life after BK.

I was very shocked that I was approved for this card 602 score -no history with credit cards before, first opportunity given. $300 limit. I do have a credit builder CC with the Credit Union I work for and the limit is $500 and after 3months of good payment history my limit will go up $100 each month with a max of $2500 limit.Next month is when my limit starts it's first increase.
I did speak with a Representative at Capital One and found out my account was in the Credit Steps Program which I'm not surprised about considering my credit score. However, since I know my credit limit with my Credit Union CC will be around $900-1K by the time I am eligible for the $200 CLI at Capital One. I am afraid of having my Capital One limit staying so low when I know my other card will gradually grow every month. Any tips on how I achieve a higher CLI than $200? thanks!

I just received my Capital One QuicksilverOne in the mail so I can only review the application process for those interested. I applied on March 17 with a 632 CK and 584 Experian score. I wasn't instantly approved and got a message saying that I will receive a letter in 7-10 business days. What I received in the mail was a request for income verification. I sent in my last 3 months bank statements along with 2 of my most recent pay stubs. I received my card in the mail today, 4/3/2014 with a $500 credit limit. I was hoping for more because of my income, but I'll take it. I understand Capital One is pretty good with credit limit increases on this card. We shall see...

While trying to repair my credit, I applied for two low-limit cards last year and have kept low balances on them & have paid them on time every month. However, my accumulated credit line for both cards only adds up to $750. On a whim, I decided to try for this card because I know I need more cards/higher limits in order to increase my credit score. I have a score of 606, so I didn't think I'd get approved for much. I got instantly approved for a credit line of $2,000! I am beyond thrilled. I want to buy a new car in the fall and this will help me increase my credit score!

I have been rebuilding and look forward to using this card for my items that autobill that I pay in full every month. I had previously had those going to a card with no cash back rewards, so this will be a good transition. Kind of wish the annual fee was a bit lower, but I will make it back with the cash rewards. Hopefully, after rebuiiding some more, I get get the card transitioned to no annual fee.
Approved with CK 631 for $2000. Also have their Platinum card with a $750 credit limit.
