**Newbie here! Minimum score for a secured BOA?

Hey all!  Been lurking for about a week now and have finally decided to post.  DH needs to work on building up his score.  He currently has a 623 from TU but had a BK 13 in 10/05 - done paying in May 2009 - yay!!  What is the minimum score that BOA will grant a secured card to?
 
Thanks for your help!Smiley Happy

I don't think BOA will approve. They are not BK friendly.

Starting Score: 454
Current Score: 690
Goal Score: 750

Just my two cents...

I was approved for B of A secured w/ a score of 515, 12 lates from Cap one in the last 2 years, 4 lates from macys, 3 collections (2 unpaid) and an unpaid PR from 2007. I was amazed. LOL

BofA will give the secured card to bk people. you just have to be 1 year out of it. so your way past that.
I also have chapter 13 and got it after 1 year from original filing.
