There is no predefined number of Capital One cards you can have at a time. More specifically, you can have as many Capital One credit cards as your credit standing would allow. Approval would be based on your credit history, your income and any potential debt you might have.

The Capital One credit card upgrade process is a way to switch from one Capital One credit card to another. The process generally begins with an offer from Capital One, but you can also try calling the number you see on the back of your card to ask about eligibility. To check for upgrade offers online, visit the … read full answerCapital One upgrade offer page (log in at the prompt). From there, the upgrade process can be done entirely online.
Capital One periodically checks cardholder accounts for upgrade eligibility, so if you keep your current account in good shape by making monthly payments on time, you’ll have better odds of getting an upgrade offer. It also helps to have had your current Capital One credit card for at least 6 months.
Here’s what happens when you upgrade your Capital One credit card:
When you upgrade to a different Capital One card, your current APR and credit limit will remain the same unless it’s stated otherwise in your upgrade offer. Your card number will remain unchanged as well, but your CVV and expiration date will change, so you will need to update any automatic payments. You should receive the new card within 7 to 10 business days.
Here’s when a Capital One credit card is a good idea:
A Capital One credit card upgrade is a good idea for people who have outgrown their current card, changed their spending patterns recently, or don’t want another hard credit inquiry on their credit report. Capital One does not pull your credit report when processing a credit card upgrade request, so there’s no need to worry about a hard credit pull. Capital One also allows upgrades between products, such as upgrading from a cash back card to a travel card, which can give a cardholder new rewards-earning opportunities.
But it’s worth considering that upgrading to a different credit card will most likely make you ineligible for any introductory APR periods or bonus offers that would otherwise come with the new card. The upgrade offer will state this before you accept.
There is currently no official limit to how many Chase cards you can have. There used to be a rule according to which you couldn’t obtain a Chase-branded credit card if you had opened five or more credit card accounts — from any issuer — in the past 24 months.

What you should know about the Chase limitations when opening a new credit card:
There is no official limit on how many Chase cards you can have. When you apply for a card, Chase will take into consideration your credit score, credit history and your overall creditworthiness. Other factors, such as your income and existing debt will also be taken into consideration.
The 5/24 rule. When this rule was in effect, it meant that you couldn’t get approved for most Chase cards if you had opened five or more personal credit cards (from any card issuer) within the past 24 months. However, Chase no longer takes this factor into consideration for their credit card applications.
Limitations on the type of Chase credit cards you can have. It is worth noting that Chase does not allow cardholders to have both the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and the Chase Sapphire Reserve® card at the same time. This rule is due to Chase’s strict eligibility requirements about who can open a new travel credit card. But in case you change your mind afterwards, you can always request to upgrade or downgrade your card.
Signup bonus restrictions. You are not eligible for a new card’s initial bonus if you’ve received a bonus for any Chase card in the past 24 or 48 months (depending on the card).
What to consider if you’re denied for a card because you have too many. In case this happens, you can always call the Chase’s Lending Team at (888) 609-7805 and ask for reconsideration. But in order to get a denial overturned, you typically need to prove that something on your application was incorrect or incomplete.
It is also worth noting that too many credit card applications within a short period can damage your credit standing enough to cause rejection even without an account limit in place. It also tells the lenders that you are desperate to borrow, which doesn’t bode well for your ability to pay. So, make sure you only apply for the card that best suits your needs.
