Cap1...Included or Not? I can't tell....

Weird question....but I'm just trying to plot out my rebuild and need to know. 

Filed BK 8/10/16, 341 meeting on 9/13/16, awaiting discharge (last day for objections was yesterday 11/14) 

Previously had a secured card w/ Cap1 that I paid and closed several months before filing. Attorney took my credit reports and included everything that was on there in the list of creditors. Cap1 was included since they had a trade line. 

 

While I didn't have an *open account* or an *account that burned them*, do you think they are going to decline an app based on just being listed? Anyone else have an experience like this? 

 

Thx in advance!

Re: Cap1...Included or Not? I can't tell....

You could always call Cap One. I believe from reading through the forum that someone else didn't cause Cap One a loss, they applied but had to recon and then it was a manual override since they had to tell the system it was Ok.

No, there is no charge off and no reason to auto-deny. Many people have gotten Cap One right out of discharge, so the BK itself is not going to spook them. Apply.

Re: Cap1...Included or Not? I can't tell....

Should I wait until after I get my reports cleaned up to apply? Instinct says yes, but your experience might say otherwise?

Yes, you should make sure everything is reporting IIB and has a $0 bal. You could check the Cap1 pre-qual to see if anything shows though.

Re: Cap1...Included or Not? I can't tell....

Hey guys...just getting back with some good news! 

 

Apparently today 2 bureaus updated with all balances 0 and IIB....so I thought I'd poke around and see if the Cap1 prequalify worked. Was prequal for platinum and Quicksilver rewards - app'd for both because I knew they'd be the same pull and only got the QS1!

 

Also of note, in my online account it shows my old card as closed/paid etc. Any suggestions on moving forward? I was wondering why I wouldn't get the 2 cards like most do but maybe it's because I got put on credit steps? (IDK how to tell if I did, but I got a $300 limit)

 

Thx for all your help!
