Macy's After Bk Chapter 7

Has anyone obtained a Macys Charge after bankruptcy. Even if Macy's was included. Just really curious. I tried searching for the answer but I can't find anything definite to what I want to know. 

Thanks in advance!!

Re: Macy's After Bk Chapter 7

They are not BK friendly especially if you included them. Depends how far out from BK you are too. I tried recently and was denied and the letter I got was " an previous account had been included in a bankruptcy", and past creditor obligations etc..... Macy's is rough to get back after bK especially if they were included, but as always ymmv thing.

Macy's uses American express for their financing and American Express is not bankruptcy friendly at all... my bankruptcy is discharged but my Macy's card is still open but they will close it someday.

They may have an AMEX branded card but the UW is done by department stores national bank, not AMEX.

Re: Macy's After Bk Chapter 7

let me rephrase that Macy's DEPARTMENT STORES NATIONAL BANK  uses  AMERICAN EXPRESS® CREDIT CARD . I applied for Macy's card and received an (macy's) american express card.

Just because the card has an AMEX logo does not mean it is underwritten or issued by AMEX. For example, Barclay's has an AMEX branded card but is underwritten and issed by Barclay's Bank. Macy's also has a store card with NO AMEX logo on it. Not trying to argue, just putting correct info where it belongs.
