"Help Card" approval $2,250 just 2 months after chapter 7 bankruptcy

My DH and I have been looking at the Sleep Number Beds.  We had one on layaway.  Then they had a sale on the special edition, which can't be put on layaway.  So they offer financing.  of course I laugh.  my bankruptcy was approved 9/12.  then they tell me they have a secondary financing for people with credit problems.  So knowing I'll never be approved because of bankruptcy and the first financing is GE, I do the app. and got approved $2,250 no interest for 6 months.  my husband are planning to pay in 3.
