Re: Need Christmas Credit Card

I'm guessing you had an ARM.... which reset or required a balloon payment.
I think you are asking a lot of middle income Americans how to get credit for Christmas and unfortunately its not possible due to your bankruptcy. Secured cards and loans will help you rebuild... as well as time.
Best advice is to stop searching for a new card because your credit is very black right now and not in a Alex centurion way.
I agree with posters who have suggested that you switch your spending to cash or secured card only. And there is nothing wrong with scaling back on gift giving for 1 year.
+100000000 You didnt get your debt overnight so you are not gonna get lenders who you have burned 2 times with BK to trust you again overnight. It just doesnt happen.
