Re: Chase Recon!! After BK..

Can't answer your question regarding Chase because I'm not familiar with Chase, but Congrats on the Recon!!!  Persistence pays off!!

Re: Chase Recon!! After BK..

I did not file bankruptcy but about seven years ago I had a CC charge off with Chase (as well as a few other companies).  I was young and did not care about my credit.  I did not pay the cards (yeah I know better now).  Charge off was for about $2000.  About a week ago I figured what the heck and applied for the chase freedom card online.  Got the 30 day response.  I knew it was going to be a denial so I called them about about two days later.   Below is how the phone call went. 
 
She said I was turned down because of three reasons.  First because I opened four new credit cards lately.  I told her I currently bank at BoA and they offered those to me.  Second I have two collections showing on my account.  I explained to her I am investigating those now, they are medical.  She then said the one I was dreading.  Well back in 2002 I show you have a charge off of $2,000 on a Chase CC.  (My mouth just about dropped).  Of course I said I don't remember those but I had problems when I was younger with my credit.  She said that's ok she understands.  That she would approve me for a $3,000 CC and would have it out in the mail within 7 days.  I wanted to jump out of my sit right then and dance.  Yes I do have $22,000 in CCs with BoA but my credit has gotten so much better even Chase with a chargeoff is willing to give me another chance.
 
I appreciate the second chance from Chase.  I am going to stop applying for credit now and just garden my current ones.

Re: Chase Recon!! After BK..Part 2!!

All,

I am really loving Chase at this point...they have approved my 2nd recon for the Marriott Rewards Visa..$5K.

They asked me questions about my BK, went through my credit profile, income, savings, etc. They wanted to ensure that I have a clean history from the BK as well as handled my credit limits wisely....I am at 11% debt on my credit cards.

Re: Chase Recon!! After BK..Part 2!!

Hi Bamagirl,
 
I called the recon number....1-888-245-0625, I believe. They will ask you a series of questions...reason for BK, any accounts unpaid, etc. They will ask you why Chase...I told them I wanted a prime card, a card to grow with, and interested in the rewards program for personal and travel. They seemed really pleasant and as long as the file looked good from the BK, seems like they will approve the recon,
