Those numbers aren't great, but they're not horrible either...you might have a shot at an unsecured card, or maybe the BofA "99/500."

Do you think I can get a HSBC credit card if I've had one in the past, good history but closed it out probably 2 years ago...my past 6 years have no lates on CC's but have one re-aged account listed in 2004 that I've been disputing; had a judgment hit in 9/05 and it was paid in 11/05 in full/satisfied.  Now last fall the IRS Tax lien hit...
 
Thoughts??


The HSBC branded card might be a long shot.. you should qualify for the Orchard though assuming you do not already have it.

Re: Applying for a credit card

The BofA 99/500 card is quick and easy. I signed myself and mywife up at the same time. I had to apply for the Platinum Plus card first. Then instant request to accept the 99/500.
 
Take Care.

We have a lot in common here.
 
 



LOL   I guess we do  I am going to go to their website and see if the online chat person has any idea.
Also,  I got an email telling me I was rejected for the platnium card but no email for the 99/500.   Did the same happen to you or did you get a confirmation email on the 99/500?
