But I would like to ask how you went from 693 to over 800 in less than 1 year.


Welcome.  As I said in my post, it was from the Chapter 7 falling off the record at the 10-year mark, having responsibly managed my credit ever since the BK.

I've pretty much got all I want and need, but if a good rewards card comes along to supplement my AMEX BCP, I may just bite.

 

I've entertained a Discover or another of the rotating category cards to beef up the cash back a bit.  My partner and I share an AMEX (he's an AU on my BCP) and use the cash back to fund "mini vacations" every few months.


steve,

 

How long after your BK did u get your amex BCP????


It was in February of last year, so that's (counting on my fingers) a little under 9 years after the BK.  I had not attempted to get one prior to that, but did include them in my Chapter 7 in May 2002.

Is that the only amex you have ??     Did you get any prime cards when your BK was hitting the 8 yr mark??
