Fairly easy after you recon. Just don't go app happy after you get approved like I did. At least not for the first 6 or so months after being approved.

TU: 603 – EQ: 569 – EX: N/A – May 2010

The bank that handles the apple cards is Barclays. I apped and was approved a few months ago and they pulled TU and my score was around 620 then with a few inq's and 20% util. I recieved a 1200 limit. I dont think they were a tough bank in my opinion. I think some members have different experiences though. Good Luck!

Re: How hard is to get Apple financing???

If you don't mind me asking, how long is your credit history and do you have any baddie on your credit report. A FICO score would also be helpful.

 

Also I know this is not the right place to discuss this, but if you are thinking of buying a Macbook, you should wait 2 days because Apple is going to refresh their Macbook Pro lineup this Thursday, just an FYI...

Re: How hard is to get Apple financing???

Anyone have success getting an Apple card from Barclays after Chapter 7 bankruptcy?  If so, about how long?  Wasn't sure if they are BK friendly or not.

They are bankruptcy friendly. I actually called them last week curious about they're requirements. The person I spoke to said after discharge they'd like to see a clean history of atleast 6 months of on time payments and a TU of 550+. They are also very lenient with recons.

 

 

 

Good luck!

Also, if you're a student, they'll have a student Mac + iPod promotion in the summer.  And they'll refresh iPods right before that offer expires.
