Re: Keeping my new Barclays card through BK

I'd close the card since they are one of the ONLY prime banks that will lend to BK folks, and I mean almost immediately to 6 months post discharge.
I'd then reapply 6 months post discharge. You probably will get the card back then, since your scores will be higher than they are now. But I would advise against having them tied up in your BK. In-fact, I would close it, wait for it to report closed and then file if you can hold off.
