Your bankruptcy should be old enough that it's not as serious of a road block.

 

What cards do you want?

 

Have you tried to get a particular card and been declined?

Discover IS BK friendly...but it all depends what you have done since the BK...I was able to get a Discover Escape with a $5000.00 Credit Limit after 8 years...But the Business Discover will not approve with a BK...AMEX Will approve as well...as long as you did not include them in a BK...you may have to wait in till the 8 year mark

In this forum, when we say BK friendly, we mean likely to approve an applicant with a BK on their credit reports. Amex and Discover are not likely to approve an applicant with a BK on their credit reports.

I have a BK on my credit report.  I was approved for a Discover More in 9/11 and I included Discover in my BK.  I was as surprised as anyone could be that they approved me!  I was at the 8 year mark when I was approved.  I do not know what all were the determining factors that worked out in my favor - but I certainly am a proud Discover Card carrier once again.
