easy acceptance, great to build credit
limi increases when they offer only, poor limits, high interest, poor cust service
Thumbs up and credit when it ' s due - having been abroad for years I was given a break on my Capital One credit card; they granted me credit which enabled me to start building a history. I earn well and was surprised to get a £200 limit BUT I spent, paid off in full, spent, paid off in full, etc. After 3 months they increased the limit to £500. Ok this is pathetic for someone on a £45k salary BUT after 6 months of paying and spending I got other cards. This is the key to capital one - they help you build you ' re rating.
A year on I now have a platinum card with bank (now at £8500 limit) and a platinum plus with MBNA (limit now at £10,000). Also have platinum bank account and 4 mobile phone contracts (for family members, not all me). I also have 2.
So all in all, don ' t let yourself build debt with cap one but get one, use it, pay it, and watch your credit rating sore!
