Target Blacklists

Just thought other people in the same situation would like to know. If you included Target in your bankruptcy don't waste your time applying for a new account. I put in an application and called to check the status, the team member told me due to the way the previous account was handled (discharged in chapter 7) they could not open a new account. The good news they didn't even pull a credit report so didn't get hit with the inquiry at least. When I inquired as to a time frame when I might be able to apply and be approved she said never at this time under their policies. I only had 500 on the account in my bankruptcy. Thought others would like to know but then again your mileage may vary.

I'm in the same boat as you. You can get the Check Card and get 5% off all your purchases.

Re: Target Blacklists

That's 100% correct. I asked about when I was looking to apply again. Target keeps a black list and the agent basically that I would never get another Target card.  I included a Target Visa in my Ch7.  Now that may change since Target is looking to sell their credit division. Hopefully the company that buys it will be bankruptcy friendly.

 

In the meantime, I'm simply using a Target debit card and still get my 5% discount.

Re: Target Blacklists

Does anyone have any experience if you just had a charge off with them?

Sweet. Maybe during the transition we'll finally see some CLIs. HSBC members have been as fortunate during the Capital One acquisition.
