Re: Bankruptcy friendly credit cards

You could risk trying Discover IT or More.  Barclay is the only Prime Bank that I know of for BK'ers before 5-7 years.  Well them and Discover, which is hit or miss - some get it and some do not.  Otherwise, Credit Union's should be quite friendly at this point.  You should be able to get any CU card you want at this point.

Re: Bankruptcy friendly credit cards

That or go for another Barclay Card, but wait until April when the Reward MC is 1 year old.  They do allow more than one card after about a year.

Re: Bankruptcy friendly credit cards

Re: Bankruptcy friendly credit cards

I swear, this is the best bank on the planet. I'm eventually going to move my entire banking to them. BOA (my other bank) can kick rocks!

Have to agree with you. In July 2012 when I filed BK I opened accounts with them and moved all my banking from Chase to NFCU so I could have a relationship with them through my rebuilding process.
