wow, you're kidding me? I've never seen scores that high having just filed with no rebuilding already......650 and 670? amazing.
No kidding here. I was pretty surprised when I looked as well. Any advice on which card I should apply for first? I posted the original question on page 2 but I currently already have an open cap1 card with a $500 limit and want to know which card to go after next. I iibk an orchard bank card so I wasnt too sure about them....maybe barclays?
edit: score watch guesses another $500 limit card would put me in the 660-670 range. I do have a navy fed account and was thinking the secured but would prefer an unsecured card. On the other hand a relationship with them beyond checking/saving sounds like a good plan. Thanks!!!

I have been through Chapter 7 and while I am not proud of it, I can say that I felt like the weight of the world had been lifted off of my shoulders when it was done.
I wish you the very best and remember to read the "How To...after BK" that is posted here. I would have givein anything to have had that when mine was discharged 4 years ago!!

My poor little TU score has not changed what so ever during my early BK journey.. Makes me so sad haha.. Its the only one that is below a 600 now. Hopefully a couple months of good payments on my open cards will help that soon.. Meh, just ranting because I just updated all my scores. Thanks for listening
