Re: what doors will open 5 years out of bk?

Most people can get a personal loan shortly after BK. What banks have you tried? This is where your local CU will be very helpful. I'm sure they would love to talk to you and give you different options.


What banks were included in your BK? Most of the big name banks are not BK friendly (Chase, Amex, Citi, Discover) although you will read about a handful of people who had credit extended to them with a BK reporting (Discover, Amex).


What cards do you currently have now? Which ones are on your wish list?


Congratulations on 5 years. Mine turned 4 earlier this year. Cannot wait!!!!

BK in 2008---Barclay's Apple Financing Card ($10,000) --- Capital One Quicksilver ($13,000)--- Gold Delta Skymiles ($15,000) --- GEMB CareCredit ($5700) --- AUFCU ($10000)--- Walmart ($5000)--- Discover IT ($21,000)
