Re: Retail Credit Cards

I thought 6 months must be a magic number also. Apped twice before for Walmart, denied. Yesterday was a few days past my 6 mos. discharge. Approved for Walmart & Amazon.

Re: Retail Credit Cards

I just got approved for $500 from Target.  I'm glad to be getting in their good graces, I burned them badly in my bankruptcy.
