Discover IT approval BK Ch 7 discharged 12 months

Applied for Discover IT with the link for $150 cash back. Got the 5-7 day message.  First thought was that I was denied, but I called them up and they gave a counter for $1K credit limit, 6 months 0%,  no cash bonus, 22.9% APR. I gladly accepted the offer. Only question asked was how long along I filed BK.  Ch 7 filed 12/12 and discharged 4/13 and never had a Discover card.  They pulled my Equifax score @ 686.  After BK discharged I got 2 Capital One cards ($200 and $3K limits after 6 months auto CLI) to start rebuilding ASAP. Approved for Barclay's reward last month $1,500 limit and now Discover $1,000. It is possible to get Discover with recent BK.  Thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences because I never knew you could call for a recon.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."
