Airtran Airways Platinum Visa $1750 CL TU score was 604. Any Juniper Bank card would probably fall under this thread.

Great thread!   I was approved for a Providian about 9 months after my discharge.  I think my score was low 600 at the time.   Not sure about them know since Wamu bought them.  Since then Wamu sold my account to CB&T/SST.    Anyone have luck with different store cards?  ie.  Home Depot, Lowes, Best Buy, Circuit City, American General, etc, etc. ?

Wow, very impressive!  What were your scores prior to applying for all of these cards, and what time frame did you apply after your BK discharge?
