I've had this card for almost 2 years and FOR WHAT IT IS, its an incredible asset! I started rebuilding my credit in 2008 with an HSBC secured card with a $200 CL. I never asked for a CLI because all I was doing was putting one tank of fuel on the card per month and then paying it off. This kept me at my 30% goal of utilization and showed a healthy habbit of paying off my debts each month. After a year my score jumped from a 608 to a 670, which is when i applied for this card. I was instantly approved for a $350 limit and enrolled into the Credit Steps program (make payments on time and get instant CLI, etc...) After one year my CL jumped up to $1250 and has recently doubled to $2500. I used this card for all of my grocery/dining out purchases and cleared the balance each month. My score has jumped from a 670 to a 730 (TU/EX)  and I now use a Cap One Venture  (Sig. Visa - $7500 CL) for all of my purchases to rack up miles/points towards travel. I still keep both this card and my HSBC in the wallet (HSBC has a great Credit Monitoring program that allows me to pull my report/scores once a month from all 3 CB with no HP) to keep the AAoA up and to remind myself of where i started and where i am today. 

For all of you complaining about this card having a high APR or a low CL you really need to understand that this card is a tool for people looking to rebuild their credit. If you want a high limit apply for a Visa Signature Card (Chase Saph, Venture, Citi Pref etc..) but you better have a great CS and a good history or you will be instantly denied. For everyone trying to re-build there credit Capital One is a great place to start!

This card delivers as does Capital One!! I ruined my credit over the years, but they gave me a car loan( I got an awesome new car) and this new credit card, after an initial $500 credit limit, I charged regularly, not more then 25% of the limit, paid the balances in full, never just the minumum, after 6 payments I was given a new credit limit of $3,500!! This pushed by credit from Fair to Good!!! It works as advertised and is worth an annual fee!!! I will stay with Capital One!!!

I'm still waiting to see how my experience goes but I will say this.  I took the offer to try to help rebuild my credit, and this card said no annual fee for the first year and what not.  Within 1 day of receiving this card and having it activated I was hit with a $39 member fee lol.  So much for the first year NO ANNUAL fee right?  Hell I should've at least had the opportunity to spend the first penny.

I applied and was approved with a credit score of 598. Initial credit limit was only $300. It was supposed to increase to $500 after 5 on-time payments. My credit limit increased to $3,300 after 5 on-time payments. I have had Capital One before for a few years. I have never had any problems with them. However, this card has an annual fee and no rewards. I also have a Barclaycard that offers 2% back on most purchases. That has no annual fee. I average $500 on that card a month, while Capital One only gets around $50 of my money just to keep the account open while I build my credit. This company will have to issue me a rewards card and waive the annual fee in order to keep my business in the long term.

I applied for this card after paying off two collections accounts. Checked all three credit scores, ranging from 570-590. Didn't think I had a chance to get approved, but filled it out anyway. Got approved for a $300 limit, which I plan to use rebuilding my credit by making less than 30% charges on it and paying them off before their due date. Hopefully once I receive it and begin to use it, I get the same customer service that everyone else boasts about.

I really screwed up my credit in my younger years, so when I checked my report last year around this time I had a score of 535. I then applied for a First Premeire CC, and was approved with a 300 limit. For the next 6 months I only used it 2x's per month just to fill my tank, and paid balance off in full every month. My credit score went up to 560. I then applied for this card, and was approved with a 300 credit limit, and they said if I used it every month for 5 months with ontime payments they would raise my limit to 500. Did the same with this card used it 2x's a month for gas in my wifes car, and paid in full each month. After I made my 5th payment I was looking for my credit increase, and what do you know. They didn't even raise my limit another 200 stinking dollars, they RAISED IT 2000 more dollars for a limit of 2300. yes, that right  two-thousand, and three hundred dollas..... Then that raised my credit score another 40 points up to 600!   Thanks, Captial One! You now have a customer for life!
