They blacklist for BK'ed and CO'ed accounts. If it wasn't BK'ed you may be able to pay it and be "de-blacklisted". Call them and ask about paying the account. They may have a reinstatement program for you.

Hello,

 

I filed Ch. 7 in BK in 2/01--discharged 6/01. Macys was IIB. Yesterday on a whim I app'd for Macys card online. Didn't give an approval or a denial. Called backdoor # today. CSR rep asked if I had ever had a card. I said yes many years ago. She then asked if I had filed BK, I said yes. She paused, then said if you can hold for a minute, I can get this approved for you. She came back to the phone with an approval w/ a $300 CL. Not much, but I didn't think I could get anything!!

 

Also, app'd for Hooters MC the other day. Got same message as macys: thanks for your app. it is processing. Called backdoor #, was approved for $1100CL!! CSR didn't know APR or if there was an annual fee. I guess I'll find out in a couple of weeks.

 

There is hope for me yet!!!! Util should improve score. AA will suffer a bit, though, but I think that will be short term. 

 

Thanks for all the help myfico-ers!! It's really helped!!!!

Re: Does macys blacklist

Congrats on the dual approvals! 

 

Nice Macys approval and not a common thing with a BK'ed card. Probably floated because the BK was so old. The honesty probably didn't hurt either. BTW $300 from Macys is a good initial CL. If you take care of that Macys card it will take care of you!
