Congrats on 2008-04-12

Congrats on your capital one card approval this card will help you fix your credit score.

But you did the right thing in applying.

Stay with this card for a year and check your score.

Im sure you will see your FICO higher as long as you are never late.

I have capital one and there great.

Take care,

Alex

When I said to stay for a year I meant in a year check your score.

Because I know you will like Capital One.

Good Job!! on 2008-04-12

Keep this Capital One card for at least 2 years and if you can charge something inexpensive each month and pay it off each month. All 3 bureaus will report your points each month as "Paid As Agreed" which will boost your credit scores. The key is to show/demonstrate an excellent payment history and you should be fine. Keep up the good work... Rockin35

Stay with this card not 1 or two years... For many years to come..

I hope you don't close this account this is your first card and will help you established a credit file..

Congratulations!! on 2008-04-12

Treat this card well. Capital 1 can either be your best friend, or your worst enemy. Capital 1 was a great starter card for me.
