BK Friendly Credit Cards Listed

[ Edited ]

Since this forum got a specific area for credit cards, I thought I'd re-post this with updated info.

 

The following information is from my own experience and compiled data from other areas of the internet and friends. Please feel free to add to this list if you get approved for something not listed on here and have a BK on your credit report. Hopefully this helps people and saves them an INQ hit due to applying and getting denied for credit.

 

Also the info listed is gathered by the lowest score approved by at time of applying. It may or may not have lower requirements when applying. Be sure to check if they use a different cra when pulling your credit report. The ones showed below were experienced by myself or others.

 

Store cards are not included. That will be used for another thread.

I notice that you listed Juniper.  I keep getting offers from them and the rate is fantastic (8.99% Fixed) but I don't know much about them.  I know they are owned or was recently brought out by Barclays.

well i've seen two people in the 500's with a bk get wamu about a year ago
i don't know if it is still that way, that is why i didn't list them
 
however Providian seems to be owned by wamu now,...so does anyone have any clarification or experience with them?

Juniper is one of those that i don't have personal experience from. From the people that I know personally however, they have mixed feelings about. They're bk friendly with a decent apr, but a few friends have been hit with a hidden annual fee. Be sure to get details on these guys.
