Welcome to the myFICO forums!

 

 

Very unexpected from Comenity indeed! Congrats! Can you provide additional data points? FICO scores; Inquires; Other Open Accounts; etc...

Re: Approved for Comenity Card after I burned them in Bankruptcy!

I currently only use credit Karma to see where my scores are and i have a 609 on both equifax and transunion. i have a secured discover card $200 limit, a fingerhut account $400 limit (just graduated from fresh start), and $500 self lender secured loan. The only negatives on my account is chp 7 bankruptcy and my 25 inquires. i have been denied for almost EVERYTHING so i was so suprised that they approved me.

Is it still showing as a SP? And did you app in store or online? Was it a preapproval first?

yes it is a soft pull. I applied online and i have my ss# locked so i dont receive pre approvals. i applied and they sent me a letter that had me call them and verify who i was. After i verifired my identity they told me i was approved.

Curious, was your Indigo card approval a HP or SP? Trying to collect data.
