I posted this in the credit card forum, but didn't get much advice. I'm hoping to hear from anyone who was approved for NFCU rewards card with BK 7.
Here's my situation:
BK 7 discharged 10/2010
CC's: Cap One (non-secured) $1500, Cap One (secured) $458, PrimeWay FCU Visa ($1000)
Auto Loan with PrimeWay FCU 2.99% 60 mo $15K.(started off with Honda Finance 1 yr after BK at 18%) refied with PWFCU 2 months ago
Conn's store card, approved for $4500 in 9/2012 only used $2800 with 0% interest, balance will be paid off in August
DTI about 9%
617 (EQ Fako)
630 (CK Fako)
643 (CS Fako)
32% utilization currently reporting but just paid off last remaining balance so utilization should drop to 2% in the next few days with an increase in scores.
1 collection on Equifax ($100 med bill that was included in BK) and 3 collections on Transunion (all included in BK). No collections on Experian.
Opened NFCU account last week...anyone with NFCU BK 7 approval? I want to apply for $5K NFCU rewards card. Should I wait a bit or apply now?

I would say to wait until your updated utilization reports and then apply for either the nRewards (SEEMS to be easiest ymmv) or the cashRewards. I got my cashRewards 5 months post BK7. They will always counter with the secured nRewards which has the potential of unsecuring at a year so it's worth it. Good luck and keep us posted
