Pro:I had a credit score of 512 CK. I got approved for $500 and it has gone up to $1500 after one year. My credit score is now 630. Make sure you keep ure balance under 30% usage. i.e. my limit is $1500 so i keep my balance under $450. That is what's building my credit.

Con:Always pay on time b/c the fee is $40 and intrest kicks in after your first year.

 I was coming off a bankruptcy, which included two cards from Cap One. I applied, and was approved with a $2,000 limit. Thank you, Capital One for givng me a second chance.

I have a Capital One secured credit card with a limit of $500. I recently paid off all of my old debt (about 3 grand) and it raised some of my FICO scores about 60 points; recently I applied for a Chase credit card but was declined. I figured I may as well take the hit on this card and see what would happen, I got approved for a 1,000 $$ credit limit right off the bat with no deposit, down payment, or anything of that nature. I'll be making small purchases to get the ball rolling with their five month pay on time deal but the purpose of this card is to help rebuild my credit - along with the secured card I have. Love CapitalOne, I am glad they took the chance on me with the secured card and so happy they approved me for this card with a 1k limit even though I have less than perfect credit. Here's to the future!

I have always had the worst credit with late payment dirg marks collections identity theft and all. Never had credit card (of my own just in my name) just loans and medical bills, never could get a credit card either. But a year ago Capitol One denied me for every card they have. Yeasterday I got a Pre-Approved offer for this card in the mail and said what the heck lets see. Bam 60 seconds later WELCOME TO CAPTIAL ONE $300 CL increasing after 5 payments. THANKS CAPTIAL ONE FOR GIVING ME THE CHANCE TO REBUILD!
