According to their website, you have to be out of BK for 12 months and have no liens.

I apped about two years ago, my BK was 8 years in. They denied me and the reason they stated was BK. It might have been other components as well, I had one late at 4.5 years. Score was about 700.

A few months ago, my mom was approved for WF's Rewards card with $12k CL with a BK7 from 2004 reporting.


But she has been a WF checking customer since 1986 when she moved here and has never had any issues with that account. And she has a closed PIF/No lates WF auto loan from 2010-2011 reporting from when she cosigned on my car.
