+1

 

Now off to the garden. Give your scores time to grow, get your util down, inq's to fall off and let your bk age. 

 

Walmart CL will grow and you will see an increase in your score.

Re: Walmart Credit Card

i think my BK is just because of repossession and other miscellaneous stuff.. no mortgage though and no major credit cards. tr5ying to avoid school loan payment and it was hard time for me. But you should be able to get approve. Try to do it online. I think with your credit score you'll be okay.

You may want to give it 6 more months to gain some more history on your current cards and raise your FICO some. GE is BK friendly but 620 is borderline for approval and a recent BK isn't helping.

Re: Walmart Credit Card

+1 to the garden. 

Let those hard inquiries drop off while you work out the baddies. 

If you do and get both taken care of, by the time the inq fall away you should sitting pretty. 

Remember keep your util down so when you exit the garden you will not need to really buy the balances down.
