My Post-BK Rebuild Update

[ Edited ]

 

I just got approved for the Chase Amazon Visa Signature 15 months post-BK, so I wanted to do a rebuild update:

 

IIB: Amex, BofA, Comenity, Citibank, Chase, DSNB, Synchrony, WFB.

 

 November '15

BK7 Discharged

May '16

Credit One approved, $400 SL-Now Closed

June '16

Capital One Platinum approved, $3000 SL, now a QS at $3800

July '16

 Discover it approved, $1000 SL, now at $3300

Victoria's Secret approved, $500 SL via Shopping Cart Trick, now at $800

NFL Extra Points approved, $3500 SL, now at $4500

 November '16

jetBlue Plus approved, $4000 SL

December '16

Closed Credit One

Quicksilver approved $10000 SL

 

2/15/17Apped for Chase Amazon Visa Signature, received 30-day review

2/21/17- Received denial letter in mail

2/22/17- Called for recon, approved $500 SL

 

In my Wallet Today

Capital One Quicksilver MC, $3800

Discover it, $3300

Victoria's Secret, $500

NFL Extra Points Visa, $4500

jetBlue Plus WEMC, $4000

Capital One Quicksilver WEMC $10000

Chase Amazon Visa Signature $500

 

FICO 8 Scores: EQ 687, TU 652, EX 677

Total Credit Limits: $26900

 

My rebuild has been a little more fast and furious than I intended, but I am happy with the results. Later this year, I plan to combine the two QS, and close NFL Extra Points and roll balance onto the jetBlue Plus to pare down my wallet.

Yes, it does, geemillz! It looks like you've done some work of your own. Nice cards and limits in your signature. Smiley Happy Was BoA IIB for you? I want to get back in with them someday, and I've heard the secured route is a good way to go. Wasn't sure how long I have to wait.
