The Cabela's Visa is a decent card, especially if you shop there. You get 2% cash back there, plus $25 in cash backupon approval. Plus 1% cash back on everything else. No AF, andtithe interest rate is decent (mine is 12%).  They pull a hard on EQ for CLI's.


CC's: AMEX (4), Alliant Visa, PenFed AMEX, Pen Fed Promise, Citi (3), Chase (5), US Bank Cash+, Huntington Voice, UMB Visa, Nasa Plat Cash Visa, Barclay's Visa, Discover IT, Cap One QS, BOA (2), BMW Visa, 5/3 Real Life Rewards MC; FNBO Amex; Comenity Visa/MC (4), Ebates Visa Siggy, Nordstrom Visa, Walmart MC, Sam's Club MC; A few assorted store cards.

Re: Help me think im good longish term

I would have to research the boards some, but can tell you that when I was approved in 2009, my score was around 660ish, with a 7 yo BK still reporting. There have been some mixed reports of them no longer being BK friendly, as of late.
