HH Gregg & Walmart CC After BK

I'm in the process of rebuilding my life and credit after layoff, divorce, and CH 7 BK.  BK was discharged May 2013, and I'd like to slowly rebuild.  I'm considering applying for a couple of cards I formerly had and were included in the BK:  Walmart and HH Gregg. 

 

Has anyone had any success getting credit with GEMB after including them in BK?  What about with these stores if you were successful? 

 

Thanks for your help!

 

P.S.  Planning to apply on or before 9/3 when my reports go back on LOCK DOWN!

Please, for the love of all that is pure and righteous, Do not do this!

 

Go read the 7 to 700 guide in the BK forums.  A BK rebuild is completely different than a normal build, if you follow that guide, you'll have a 700 in no time at all.

I also suggest you visit the BK forum for better answers and help

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Why would it matter if anyone has had success?  We're ALL telling you not to do this!
