I have been trying to get this card every couple of months since it came out and was denied every time. My credit score is around 670 and I have a discharged chapter 13 from 4 years ago.I was actually denied about an hour prior to being approved for a SL of $1250. I was buying a band for my apple watch and figured I would try just to get denied. About an hour later I went back and added around $5k to my cart and tried again and that's when I actually got approved. I kept getting denied for being previously past due although Its been 4 years since my chapter 13
Congrats on that elusive Apple Card!
Congrats on your approval! I too am rebuilding (although my TU was clean when I finally got the Apple Card). Anyway, my card started at $1,250 and I am now at $6,500 after 2 increases during the first 6 months. If you use it and PIF, I think you stand a great chance of seeing it grow!
