Leary about applying for Credit Card 6 months post chapter 7

Looking for a little guidance here. I'm 6 months post discharge. Had multiple cards, 2 cap ones, 2 Amex, discover, multiple citi cards, care credit, Home Depot, chase, a credit union loan etc. all together about 60k and all discharged. One card survived, a Dell credit card with 2k cl but no balance. Used it once so far after the discharge just to test it. Paid it asap. I have a car loan that I was allowed to keep as well. According to Credit Karma I have a 675 equifax and a 627 transunion. I have no blemishes other than the BK. Never late on anything. Credit Karma says I have a great chance of being approved for a Cap One Platinum. I had two cap one cards pre Chapter 7. According to Cap one's pre-approval (soft pull) tool, they have no card offers for me. I'm really interested in getting another unsecured card for credit rebuilding purposes. Any advice

My BK was very similar.  Same cards and even had the Dell Preferred live through the BK.  To date the only card to approve me (besides the few SCT cards) was CreditOne.  I know you'll read some things on this forum about them but they offered me $1,500 CL(now $1,700) with no AF so I took it and haven't had any issues.  My BK was discharged in Aug 2016 and as of a few days ago CapOne is still auto denying me with out a HP so I know I'm still on the blacklist.  I joined NFCU and plan to app for one of their cards once I get to one year post discharge.
