Define "prime".

 

With your scores, you'd probably qualify for most "good credit" rated cards, but several of the issuers will say no because of the bk.

Current Scores: EX: 615, TU08: 639, EQ: 607. 04/01/2015.

With those scores, I have to think SOMEONE would give you a shot. The one prime card that I have read gives BK credit prospects a chance after the BK has aged for a time (like yours has) is Discover. They seem to overlook an OLD BK if the rest of the profile is good. Have you tried their prequalification site?

You could certainly try Discover. Somebody on these boards got  Discover More card one year after filing BK. Obviously YMMV

 

Barcley's may also be considered prime and have been pretty generous and BK friendly.

BK in 2008, after making very stupid financial. decisions.

AMEX is NOT BK-friendly...PERIOD. I'm not sure about the co-branded cards, though.

 

Some of the others like U.S Bank, Citi and BOA have similar stances with regards to seeing BK on the report. Barclay IS BK-friendly, though there are differing opinions as to whether they are prime or not.

What banks were included in your BK?

Do you currently have any open credit cards, loans, etc.?

 

GE - Very BK Friendly, many have store or Visa/MC/Amex/Disc depending on what store... Any you use frequently?

Barclay as others mentioned - and GREAT recon dept for approving after denial or getting CLI minutes after an instant approval

Nordstrom

Macy's

NBloomingdales

Capital One but not sure I would waste 3 INQ when you already are in the 700 club.

Fico Scores: EQ- 670., TU 710 Sync, EX 728 SoFi(05/04/15)
I'm just trying to catch up to RON1

That was me.  I got my Disco More 11 months after my discharge (14 months after my filing).  Score was ~650 at the time IIRC.

 

Also, if you scan these boards (and others) deeply, there are plany of stories about Amex approving @ 7-9 years after the BK (after the IIBs fall off).  Amex's internal scoring system seems to use the old "BKs off in 7 years" rule.  Which means you may Q for an Amex sometime this year.  YMMV.

 

The only real way to know if you'll get the card you want is to app for it, and try for a recon if your app doesn't go through.  If you've been prudent about not having too many INQ's, one or two won't hurt you, and really won't hurt you after 12 months.
