Just got discharged! YAY

Hi everyone!

 

Just wanted to update everyone on my progress. I recently wrote that I was having trouble with CheSystems - I got that figured out and currently bank at Chase.

 

I now have three Credit Cards - 1. Capital One 2. First Premier 3. Milestone. (Each have $300 limits). I use them and pay them off.

 

I also recently applied for the Capital One Blank check autoloan and was approved! Smiley Very Happy I was so excited/happy. I should get my check by the end of the week and plan on purchasing a new car. 

 

(Prior to that though, I recieved a nice promotion from my work - so everything is working out nicely.)

 

I am so happy for this community which gave me the courage to start over and file for Chapter 7.

 

I got discharged 1/27/13.

 

If I can do it, anyone can!

Re: Just got discharged! YAY

Congratulations. I recently file chapter 7 in dec and have had my 341 meeting on jan. 13. 2014. I am awaiting discharge. My situation is sensitive so i won't go into alot of details. Could you please tell me what your credit score was when capital one approved you for the blank check program. Many thanks and congrats

Re: Just got discharged! YAY

Congrats!!! I remember how wonderful I felt when I received my discharge on my ch 13, three years after I filed.

 

Congrats on the uncoming new car, too.  Do you know what you are buying yet??  And what kind of rate applies to something like the Cap 1 blank check auto loan???

 

I brought my new SUV in June 2013 at 2.9%, but believe me, I remember the high interest rates and never want to see them again.

 

I hope all goes well now that u are out from under the BK.

Re: Just got discharged! YAY

Looks like you dodged a bullet since you applied for credit BEFORE discharge, unless of course you had approval from the Trustee??? Reason I ask is if you apply for credit without the Trustees prior approval, your BK could be and would likely be dismissed and that would be a very bad thing...
