YAY!! CAPONE APPROVED CC POST BK!!!

Hey everyone.... Just wanted to let everybody know that I got approved for my first unsecured credit card post chp 7!!!!!!
I'm soooo excited!! My chp7 was discharged on August 19th 2013, so I am only a month and a half post discharge!! So, I have literally been checking the Captial One "pre qualified" site like almost daily, and nothing!!! It would always say " we can't match our records to you, but from the data entered we recommend these "... So tried it tonight , same thing and got same message, but this time I decided to just bite the bullet and apply, and I was instantly approved!!!!! Yay!

Terms: classic platinum- $1,000 CL!!!!!!!!!!!, wow!!!!!:smileyhappy:
24% apr (doesn't matter, cause I PIF )
$0 AF first year/ $19 after that


So, I'm off to the garden till December 2014, and then will app for a Discover or Barclays

I currently have the following positives reporting on all 3 CRA's:

Commerce Bank- secured Visa, $500 cl (opened 08/2013) reports to all 3 CRA's
Capital One- unsecured MasterCard, $1,000 CL
2 separate Federal School loans , both current!

Before approved tonight for the Cap One MasterCard, my secured Visa was reporting at 2% util!! So happy to be approved just a month and a half post discharge and thankful for another chance!! Off to garden these till next December!!

Oh, and I burned Cap One in my BK and didn't even know it! They apparently owned my Neiman Marcus acct, and burned them for $500 roughly, so they are definitely bK friendly!!:smileyhappy:

congrats!  However, I would graden a lot longer than December if you want Discover.  You'll need a good solid post-BK payment history and a score North of 675 IMHO.

Congrats on your approval. With Capital One you are probably in their builder program. If so you will see an increase after 6 months on time payments.

Re: YAY!! CAPONE APPROVED CC POST BK!!!

Hello everyone I am new to the FORUM, I wanted to say that I filed CH7 in October of 2013, and discharged Dec 18,2013. I read this part of the post "checking the Captial One "pre qualified" site like almost daily, and nothing!!! It would always say " we can't match our records to you, but from the data entered we recommend these "... So tried it tonight , same thing and got same message, but this time I decided to just bite the bullet and apply" - Im telling you I must of read it over and over for about 30 min, I said what the heck and went for it, filled the app online, pressed enter and gulped, crossed my fingers, I had no idea what was going to happen, but I knew it was either 50/50 yeah or neah, well the next sccreen said congratulations your approved for $1000.00. I nearly fell out of my chair! OMG- and I had a cap one secured card included in the BK! WOW - and I filled oiut the remaining info for online management of the account, my card arrives in 7-10 bus days. I still can't beleive it, I never had an unsecured card of that amount IN MY LIFE!!!!  I want to say thank you the person that shared their story for it would not have happened (taking a chance that is) had I not read this post! ANd special thanks to all who share the info here to help others! GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!!! I only know my middle scoe which is 586 according fico scorewatch. I am excited to start this journey and improve my credit, goal is a new car 6-7 mo from now and a house a year from now or maybe 2 years I think? any suggestions I would appreciate as I am a newbie! Perhaps another friendly post BK dept store card? and when to apply for it, thanks again !!!!!

Re: YAY!! CAPONE APPROVED CC POST BK!!!

Welcome to the forums! You will absolutely find all the info you need to rebuild here. There are two really good threads in the bk forum, I would suggest reading those to start. One is how to bk to 700 in 24 months and the other is, bk friendly credit cards. That will give you plenty of reading to get you started! Congrats on the approval, make sure to read the terms in the approval letter bc you are probably in the credit steps program. That means an auto CLI at 6 months as long as you pay on time!
