Does anyone know...

To get a better card like discover, amex or citi can you have a bk on file? Do they decline even if you have a decent credit score? Anyone have any insight or experience on this?

To start, I would suggest using the Search feature in the upper-right (below the Community tab) and type: Discover bk


This will give you some up-to-date (2011) results.  Here's a link for example:


Do the same for AMEX or any other questions.  More than likely, you will find your answers from those who have experienced it first-hand.


Be aware of dates, as some posts may not be current.  Just supply a tweak to your search criteria and I'm sure you'll get good results.
