It is nice to finally find this thread. I’m three years into a five year bk 13 and was wondering on who will approve a secured card during an open bk 13. I was denied for a citi secured and won’t know why until my denial letter. Was going to try for NFCU, Wells Fargo Secured, US Bank, or BofA secured. Would like to know if anyone got approved of those cards?

You were denied for the Citi secured because of BK. For the secured card you need to be 2 years post BK. It’s in the second paragraph of the “learn more” on the secured card page on citi website.

 

To receive a Citi® Secured Mastercard® you must meet our credit qualification criteria for this card, which includes our review of your income and your debt. If approved, your security deposit must be equal to your credit limit. You must not have any bankruptcy history within the last two years.

Re: Chapter 13 Friendly Credit Cards

Not sure if it ha been mentioned already, but Target will approve you with an open 13 as I currently have a Target card.  Commenity Bank is another one a well.  I was able to obtain a Overstock and Aeropostale card with them.

Re: Chapter 13 Friendly Credit Cards

If there is enough interest I can either edit post #1 with success stories or we can keep this thread going with individual success stories. 

 

For my case

Filed:27 December 2017 

Approved: Open Sky Secured (No Credit Check) 28 December 2018

Scores: Eq: 600, TU: 532, Ex: 540. No baddies ever so maybe that’s how they’re “decent”. 

Goal: NFCU Secured (after established relationship) and 1 other card based on others success stories. Then garden until discharge December 2022. Yes, I have approval permitting I don’t carry more than $500 in balances across all sources. 

Burned in filing: BOA, Citi, Capital One, Chase; Discover, Synchrony, USAA

My rule was also nothing over $5,000 dollars. Va seems very lenient on BK compared to other states I have been reading about.

Re: Chapter 13 Friendly Credit Cards

Yes !! We need to get a much better group with ch. 13. When I first filed there was nothing for Ch.13 here. It has improved with the amount of data but it is a ways to go.

Go for the Target card.  I love having mine for household products.  I actually have to go to Target today.
