Thanks Dave. Your comments are helpful. I didn't burn Amex and I hadn't thought of a different airline card. I might give Venture a try in the next couple months. Once I summon up enough courage to apply for a new card Smiley Happy

Summon up courage? Youre a virtual lock for a Venture.


ItIt is a funny thing. The better my credit has gotten, the more reluctant I am to apply for credit. I'm less than thrilled about the experian inquiry for the Delta Amex card and I'm pondering the benefit of yet another inquiry (triple pull with Capital one) and the effects of a new account on my score. I know, trivial but I honestly don't need new credit. It would be nice to get more travel miles but I have to convince my self that it is actually worth it Smiley Happy

I got an offer today for double rewards on the Discover It for a whole year (2% on purchases and 10% on rotating categories). I thought about it and bit the bullet. I was approved for $5k and I am looking forward to my card arriving. I will stick to using the Discover (Sorry Capital One) until the BK falls off. I may then reconsider an AMEX at that time. 


Woooohoo! Congrats on the Discover approval Smiley Happy They have been sending me pre approved offers once a week lately!

Yes, they still say they can't over ride the system unless I entered information wrong which I did not.

They declined me due to the bankruptcy.

Scupra, I think I remember seeing on one of these threads that you were really wanting Discover.  Are you going to go for it?

Got denied NFCU because of bankruptcy. Maybe because I am a new member. Should I wait about 60 days?

Re: Bankruptcy Friendly Credit Cards Pt.2

BofA recently sent me unsolicited docs to apply for a secured with them, and that's about 2 years 3 months post discharge and they were IIB (not mine, my ex's but still on my report for some reason).  I do still have a small savings account with them that I never bothered to move to a new bank and a co-owned savings account for my 19yo from since he was a baby, so that may well be a factor.  When i called to asked questions, the CSR was really pushing it on me saying I didn't even have to put up any new cash since they could just use the savings accounts I already have there.

Try sending a secured message asking for recon and a little brown nosing.

My letter actually had an APR range on it, I hear this is a "better pre approval" chance.
