A question on CITI and Home Depot

Ok, yet another question...  I app'd Citi earlier in Feb (trying to get toe in with prime ccc) and was declined - ooh, big surprise.  I've got big home projects coming up and have seen that Home Depot has approved old BK's so I gave it a shot.  Has anyone on here been approved for Home Depot (through Citi) post-BK?
 
....I got the "needs further processing" message and am curious about other folks' experiences...

Re: A question on CITI and Home Depot

Thre's a great sticky thread at the top of the page in yellow, marked BK Friendly cc's:
 
 
You should take a looky at it. It also applies to those with low to mid 600's FICO scores, imo.

Re: A question on CITI and Home Depot

I've been through the BK-friendly thread and a couple of others that have similiar feedback, but so far haven't found anything on the Home Depot store card.  It's interesting though - I have the Macy's card through a subsidiary of Citi... but the app never mentioned anything about Citi.  I checked the disclosures pamphlet and sure enough, there it was - mentioned as the parent company of the issuer.
 
By contrast, the Home Depot store card is directly issued through Citi. 
 
As with my other app to BofA, it will be interesting to see what happens with this.  The scientist in me is dying of curiosity to know what will happen.  The gardener is just sitting back - either way, Home Depot gets my business.  It'd be nice to do a bit more credit building while I'm fixing up the yard.... but I'm philosophical...  (curious, but philosophical!)

It's a learned trait they teach in school. I had to retake that course 3 times before I passed. :smileyvery-happy:

Re: A question on CITI and Home Depot

Obviously I was out sick when that subject came up.
 
I think I'm going to be impatient and just call Home Depot and ask.  Sometimes you just want to KNOW!
