Re: Major CC's after BK

I burned Amex a while back. I called them a couple of weeks ago to figure out the amount and it was one $4,300.00. So I plan on paying them and applying at some point in the future.

 

You situation after BK and some time will may give you the opportunity to pay someone of these companies back and get in their good graces.

 

I don't see USbank and Discover on your list.. So you wallet will include the following cards:

 

Discover

Usbank

Capital One

~US Bank will be 5 yrs and 1 mo post file date if you didnt burn them, and longer if you did. 

~Amex will be 5 yrs and 1 mo post file date IF you didnt burn them. If you want back in at the 5 yr mark, you need to pay them back, if not...many years down the road before they let you back. 10-20

~Chase now is 7-10+ plus for a card. Most are reporting now no approvals until BK is off record

~Citibank retail side is obtainable 2-4 yrs post DC, and on the legacy side 5-10yrs depending. 

 

So forget the major players for a very long time

 

Discover 6-10mo post DC if you didnt burn them, 1-3 yrs if you did

Cap1 usually most forgiven. 1 week-3 mo post DC regardless of burn


My rebuild worked for me, but won't necessarily work for you!

Re: Major CC's after BK

I still haven’t been able to get a pre-approval from cap one (iib). Also is the usbank secured card a 5 yr wait as well or just the unsecured?
