I have absolutely no data to back this up - but perhaps it may make a difference as to how much your balance was that you included in your BK with C1?
I could see them not being to willing to lend a hand if you had a 30k balance when filing versus a 300........

Thanks for the advice. I bit the bullet and went for it after checking the preapproval form online, Got approved for a cash rewards card with $1,000 limit. These forum is full of great advice, by paying off my cards last month was able to get approved for a number of offers just 18 months post bankruptcy. I am now planning to move into the garden to grow my little seedlings and work on getting a few errors cleaned off my reports. Thanks one and all for all the great advice.

How much did you burn them for? I can't even get them to look at me. :-(
I burned them for $800 and they won't look at me either.

I was discharged from Bk on 5/22 I included Cap 1 in my BK filing. On 6/1 i was approved for 1k limit with Capital One. So there is hope. Hope this helps you.
