Hi creditchild,

 

BK Friendly cards has some good info on Barclays.  It's actually gotten to be a monster thread, but I think the first post and the last both touch on Barclays - along with several posts in the middle. 

Hope that's a bit  helpful.

 

I have a year old Barclay's Juniper card with a BK reporting (Ch 13 filed in 05, discharged in 09).  They pulled TU, and my FICO was about 726 at the time.  They sent me a couple pre-approvals in the mail before I bit. 

 

Good luck - and don't get too app happy.  If you have two new cards, you may want to put a little age on them.........and of course, always PIF and never carry a balance (I just have to always add that in - especially right before the holidays  Smiley Wink )

 

Just puttin' syrup on something, don't make it pancakes.
