I've been looking into Chase recently. Had a balance of $81k with them when I filed for BK in '09. I might put an application through and see if they throw darts at my picture. 


Wow, with 81K could be a big dart. Please tell us what happened after the apllication.

Re: Does Chase Blacklist?

On their site now, when filling out the application the first question (even before your name) is - Is your credit history clear from bankruptcies and/or seriously delinquent accounts?

 

Looking at their Freedom card.

Re: Does Chase Blacklist?

Researching more. I have the app half way filled out and looking into my info to see if I should complete it.

Re: Does Chase Blacklist?

Well, if you are blacklisted no Inq. So what can you loose? You will know, if you are blacklisted and if rejected for other reasons, they will tell you why.

 

As another member told me yesterday, it is only an Inq. They will fade away.

 

Good Luck

I think they'd have an issue with 81K lost via your BK (was it mortgage / heloc / similar?), but if you don't have any real credit plans for the next year I think Chase is one of maybe two lenders which is deserving of spending a recon inquiry on to see where you stand.

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 673, EQ 8 707, TU 720, EX 702* (09/02/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

Re: Does Chase Blacklist?

your mid-low 600s credit score or bankruptcy alone would be enough to get you denied for the card. But both of those together AND including Chase ($81k at that!!!) in the bankruptcy mean there's no way you're getting approved.

Re: Does Chase Blacklist?

It was a credit card (yup, it went that high). The economy and my business went downhill then my credit went down in the landslide.

I'm kind of seeing that in my research. I think maybe I'll sit tight until next Summer, let my new accounts grow and score hopefully my score will crest 700.  Then I'll give them a shot.

Freedom approvals on this forum have gone down to around 630 or so since June.  One outlier was lower than that, was a rash of apps in June/July when people realized that the Freedom was opened to a much wider audience.   I'm pretty much absolutely confident I could obtain one now with a 645ish score, but my own elephant in the living room credit issue isn't a recent BK.

 

While I too think there's a low probability as a result of not only the recent BK but a BK with an 81K Chase tradeline included, Chase really seems to want new customers these days, we're in strange economic times, and there might be a $500 approval possible under their current guidelines.  Hence I suspect it's a recon inquiry, but it's sometimes worthwhile to know if you're blacklisted with a lender, and FICO is pretty meaningless interstitially and a single inquiry isn't a huge factor even short term.

Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)
