My dad wants to apply for a Discover it. He filled BK in 2005. He has since restored his credit and his fico scores are all in the 730 range. He did not file bk against a discover card. Only neg on his report is the BK which is now 8 years old. He wants to use the 0% ballance transfer that they offer if aproved. If no any other cards out their that offer low balance transfer thats BK friendly? Thanks for any advise given.
