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!

I had not had a credit card in years my credit score was around 659 on this site but 696 on My FICO.  The application came in the mail and I decided to give it a try.  I was approved for a $2000 credit limit.  I have had it for 6 months and when I went on line yesterday my credit limit has been raised to $5000.  I always pay early, I always pay off my balance, and I never go over the limit.  I do wish this card had points.  When I have called to speak with customer service they are always very nice on the phone or chat.  This card has helped my score rise.

I got approved for this card in July 2014 when my credit score was 586. I made my first five payments on time - though I was only initially paying the minimum, but I've recently increased that - and got my credit limit raised as promised. Also, I've just been approved for the Capital One Quicksilver card, which I doubt I could have gotten without first having this card. Thank you to Capital One for taking a chance on me!!!!

I was skeptical about applying for credit because of a chapter 7 BK, but I applied about a year after and recieved two cards through Capital One. Both of my cards were $300 limits, and I had 1 for 6 months before they increased the limit to $1,500. I had high balance ratios, but paid them off completely. Apply with confidence.

I had been receiving offers for months and kept throwing them in the trash. Finally I applied and was approved for $300 CL with a 498 credit score. Have been paying ontime and score is now 560. Should get an increase in Feb 14. Cant wait to see what it will be.
