Can't beat Capital One
TheBossMrRight Cardholder

Instantly approved today for $500. 640 FICO & 655/660 CK. Our business credit is very strong not sure if that factors in - we have a $50k truck and $40k in equipment and some other tradelines with no PG. I am a business owner and this will be my first business card. Been applying for this card over the past year, every few months. I have 3 other capital one cards on personal but this was always just barely out of reach for some reason. Excited to stop using my business debit card for everything but we spend minimum $7,000/month through the debit card, so I will be planning to make payments in full every couple days when I switch over to this. Should get a CLI soon... just thankful to have been approved for this! I love capital one products.

APPROVED, CreditKarma said poor odds!

I applied online and got a message saying my application is complete. I also have a Quick Silver One card that did the same thing. I have a alert on my file so they call me first, needless to say I was Approved. The personal Quick Silver limit is $300. Was apporved once provided ID and proff of address. So when the Spark card gave me the same message I knew I was approved. I believed at the starting limit of $500. I called in to get the status and while on the call the FRAUD dept called me. I verified the application and he said it was still "pending" but the decision should be really fast. I called back in about an hour to my surprise I WAS APPROVED FOR $5000. I've only been repairing my credit for 3 months! Had the Quick silver for less than 1 1/2 month. Paid it down several times during that period as $300 is easy to spend. Paid it off just before applying. TU 614, EQ 631 (Security Freeze) EX 644. I have the Equifax on Security freeze because it has 4 baddies about 4 years old, most creditors will approve with 2 bureaus. 

I also have Secured One United Unity Visa $1000, Bank of America 1-2-3 Rewards Secured $1000, FINGER HUT $400. 

I know a couple of tricks to get fingerhut to give you regular account in 1 month on freshstart program. Comment below for any information of details

Approval with 629 Fico!!! w/Credit debt
Anonymous Cardholder

I just started a small business less than 6 months ago and I got approved for 2,000 for this card. I was quite shocked because I already have 3 cards with capital one. They are great with supporting people who want to have credit. I have been a member since 2011. No issues here. Thanks Cap!

Awesome card

I was excited when I earned my first business credit card. The customer service is great. My payment posts within 24 hours. Great rewards from shopping for business supplies.

Started slow then went up

When I first got my Spark card it was a Classic with $500 limit. At 6 months they raised to $1,500 Now at 1 year I was invited to apply for a Spark Select.

It has 1.5% cash back.  They approved it with 10,000 limit.  Easy application Never any hassles.

Destroys your credit rating, poor reward
daisy1RE Cardholder

1) If you have any personal liability on the card, Capital One (unlike Citi, Chase, or Amex) will report this to the credit bureaus.  So it will destroy your credit score, as credit utilization is the most important factor in the credit score.

2) 1% isn't good enough cash back.
