Card Overview

The Capital One Platinum Secured Credit Card requires a low-security deposit of $49, $99 or $200 (based on approval). It is a great starting point for those looking to start building credit.

Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Credit: Secured Credit Card - No Credit Needed
  • Max cards: Capital One will only let you have a maximum of 2 personal Capital One branded credit cards. (This excludes co-branded credit cards like the Capital One Walmart Rewards card.)
  • You can only get approved for 1 Capital One card every 6 months (not always enforced)
  • Credit bureau: Capital One will usually pull your Experian, Transunion, and Equifax credit reports
  • If you freeze one credit bureau you can still get approved (the credit bureau you freeze cannot be Transunion)
  • Combining same-day credit inquiries: Credit inquiries for same-day applications will be combined. Note, Capital One will only approve you for one credit card application within every six months. (Combining credit inquiries will only make a difference when declined for your first try and you want to try a new one)
  • Check application status: You can  check your application status by calling 1 800 903 9177 or 1 877 277 5901
  • Reconsideration: If declined you can call 1 800 625 7866 to be reconsidered (Capital One will usually only reconsider an application due to application error)
  • Quickest way to get my card: Your new card will be available in your Capital One app immediately after you get approved (you might need the 3 digit security code on the back of your card to access it, which means you must wait for your physical card to arrive). Capital One physical credit cards cannot be expedited, only sometimes for replacement cards for a fee
