Easiest Unsecured Credit Cards to get after Chapter 7 Bk!


Hi,


  I just wanted to share with anyone interested in rebuilding their credit after bankruptcy that there are 2 unsecured credit cards I just got after my Chapter 7 in May 2011 without a problem.

 

I was offered by email to pre-qualify for an Orchard Bank, I had nothing to lose so I applied and I got a $300 credit line with them unsecured and paid the annual fee of $59.99.

 

The 2nd email was pre-qualify for a Capital One. I got this one also with a $500 credit limit.

 

There it is. Im sticking with these two in my journey to rebuild.  I am pretty content. Capital one offered me 0% interest rate for 1 year!!

 

Here are the links for the pre-qualify if you are interested.

P.S. AMEX also offers a pre-qualify but I would recommend not trying to apply for American Express Cards with a BK. They are very very strict!!
