Where they all of the same kind (i.e. Visa, MC) How long had you had the accounts before you asked for the combination? I applied for a CapOne Plat and was offered the "alternate" card. It's not subprime because they have balance transfer options. I have a CapOne already with a whopping $600 CL and I'm about to pay it off. I wanted to get the other CapOne, hold it for a while, then ask them to combine the 2 cards. So any help anyone can offer would be great. Thanks!
