Well my bk was discharged November and I have one, so I think it is YMMV.  I was a bit shocked to get an instant approval but I did get it.  Maybe THAT csr is using HIS/HER own judgement on the bk.  I would call back and speak to someone else, and if that doesn't work, rinse and repeat.

I've never heard of a waiting period post BK for GEMB. Probably a CSR who was misinformed. You may need to have some recent, positive history showing first. I had 1 yr w/2 secured loans on my CR and got approved for $200 on Old navy, which was my first rebuilder. Also, they tend to be a little more generous or lenient around the holiday time. So, you might want to try again. Or you may need to clean up any negs still on your CR before you app again.

 

What did your denial letter say? That's probably more accurate than what the CSR told you.

 

Just had a thought: Did you burn GE in your BK? That could account for the waiting period.
