Three Years Post-BK 7 Alliant Love

Hi I'm new here and have learned a great deal.


My first post-BK (2010) card was Best Buy MC, now $800 limit.


Next was iTunes Barclay Nov. 2011, 1600 -> 2800 -> 4000 -> now 6000


Applied last week for Alliant non-rewards Visa, got 15K limit, 0% interest for a year, 10.24% after that! (I've had a small savings actt with them for three years).


I got a little too excited and applied for a Norstrom Signature and got denied, won't even give me a store card. Back to the garden.


EXP 711 | TU 713 | EQ 669

Good job...yeah, Nordstrom is more along the lines of about 5 years post-BK.  You'll get them soon enough though!

Congrats on your approvals!  As for Nordstrom, they are not BK friendly.  Enjoy waht you have, and garden for a bit.
