I am a university student and have been receiving letters from Capital One to apply for their platinum mastercard. I currently have a Comerica Visa Platinum card (which I think is much harder to get than the Capital One credit card) and quite frankly I am looking for a rewards card, so I am considering Discover More or Chase Freedom (although i agree it is hard to get one as long as I am a student!!), but still I ask do you consider applying for Capital One a good idea? My younger brother who didn't have any credit history before was able to get the Capital One card so I shouldn't have a problem there. However do you think I should wait and directly apply for a higher card (Chase or Discover or Amex)? I am really trying to build a solid credit history, any ideas are welcome..
