You said they gave you 5k any baddies on your report at the time when you applied for the card?
Yes, I had a couple from 2005 and a couple from 2003. My income at the time was around $80K, so that might be why I was approved.
I just applied for a Hooters card and got declined. My TU- 641 Equifax-604. I had a BK discharge 2007 and a few baddies but since then I have gotten a couple of CC and have 2 car loans that never missed a payment. Anyone have any good ideas to what CC they could recommend.
