American Express after Bankruptcy

Hello - A lot of posts state that AMEX will NOT approve you with BK on your record - for the most part, this is true. However, if you didn't burn them in your BK, and you've established some SOLID credit, you may be able to approved. I am 7 years post BK and I do have one; it is possible! Good luck Smiley Happy

******OLD THREAD ALERT******

 

 

Hey there masterofcreditcards. Welcome to the forum! Just to give you a heads up, this thread was started in 2008 and the OP is no longer on the forum. You are more than welcome to start up a thread similar to discuss Amex post-BK though if you would like! If you have any questions about the forum, don't hesitate to reach out. Once again, welcome!
