Congrats OP and a great start! I'm expecting my discharge in the next few weeks and I will probably apply for Cap 1 as well.

Re: Discharged Chapter 7 last week, APPROVED FOR CREDIT CARD TODAY

I am curious which bureau Cap One uses. I am 3 months out of BK and my scores vary quite a bit. Regardless, I am low to mid 600's. I did the Cap One pre-qualification that says doesn't hit your credit and applied for the card they suggested. I was immediately denied and Cap One left 3 inquiries. Awesome.
Also denied Barclay's Priceline card.
Feeling very discouraged...

Cap One pulls all three on credit apps. So that is why you will have an inquiry on all three reports. Most companies only pull one bureau. I don't know which one they pull for pre-approvals though.

I think I'm going to call and ask for recon. I've read that alot of people who have been denied had success at this level.

Great! What did you do exactly? I still can't seem to obtain ANY credit. I was even declined by Fingerhut! Fingerhut, ha!

Re: Discharged Chapter 7 last week, APPROVED FOR CREDIT CARD TODAY

Hello all,

 

my Chapter 7 BK was discharged on 11/05/14.  There's one old paid off account on my credit report that I had for about a year.  It's an auto loan from 2008 and I was late about 3-4 times.  There are also two catalog accounts that I never used, and they're still showing for paid as agreed but closed.  My EQ is 513 as odd last week.  I've applied form red it cards but have only been approved for $230 at Fingehut.  Maybe I applied too early? The denial letters are showing reasons such as bankruptcy and too many accounts not hat were not paid as agreed.  Any thoughts?
