Re: Walmart Credit Card

My plan was to wait a minimum of a year post bk7 to apply. I'm A ok with the three cards I have now. I rotate a balance less than 9% every month right now. Hopefully my score will climb quickly!!

Re: Walmart Credit Card

I filed Chapter 7 on November 2011, then started my first credit card after 3 months. I didn't really apply that much I didn't know you can rebuild right away but everyone has different preferences plus you already have credits on hand so there's no rush.. I think you are doing a really good job..Your credit will climb up right away.
