Here we’ve created a guide that’ll help you apply for a personal credit card from Capital One Bank. It is also the page where you can respond to a previously received credit card offer from Capital One Bank.
Accessing the Capital One credit card application page
The most straightforward way to access the Capital One credit card application page is arguably by entering the page’s address, which as mentioned earlier, is application.capitalone.com. So you just put your computer’s cursor in the address bar of your browser, and then type in either www.application.capitalone.com or simply application.capitalone.com (the ‘www’ prefix doesn’t make much of a difference).
Alternatively, you can access the page by clicking through from the Capital One homepage at www.capitalone.com, or with the help of a search engine.
Details that are required at the Capital One credit card application page
There are two major inputs that are required at the Capital One credit card application page, namely:
- The reservation number: this is a 16-digit number that you will have gotten from Capital One in the letter or email offering you/inviting you to apply for a credit card. If you look at that letter carefully, towards the end/bottom of it, you should be able to locate this number.
- The access code: this is a 6-digit number, which just like the reservation number, is to be found in the letter or email offering you/inviting you to apply for a Capital One credit card.
The credit card application procedure at application.capitalone.com
The credit card application procedure at the application webpage is fairly simple. To get it started, you enter the ‘reservation number’ and the ‘access code’ in the respective spaces provided for them, and then click on the green button labeled ‘get started’ to kick-start the application process.
Of course, for you to be able to go through this process, you need to have gotten an email or a letter from Capital One Bank, containing the said reservation number and access code. If you don’t already have such numbers, you will need to click on the link labeled ‘see if you are prequalified’ near the bottom of the page at application.capitalone.com. Upon doing so, you will be taken to another page, where upon providing a few personal details, and specifying the features you’d want in a card, you will be informed if or not you are prequalified. If you are prequalified, you will eventually get the reservation number and the access code necessary for you to actually apply for a card at application.capitalone.com
