The Problem:

I have a bankruptcy from about 8 years ago, and the 1st question they ask in the application process is if your credit history is clean of bankruptcies?

I have a good credit score, 679. My wife has a credit score of 712. We have paid off a car and a mobile home. But we have no open line of credit, hence our wanting to get a credit card.

So what is the solution for someone in my situation? Can I get a Chase credit card like the Marriott, or am I out of luck because of the bankruptcy?


I would suggest you go to your local bank and tell them that you want to apply for there Marriott card explain them the situation and they will be able to help you.
doing it online you can't get anywhere because of your situation.

do you travel on business?

I was going to apply for an airline credit card and noticed Chase (Southwest) is the only one who asks if you have a BK on your record. My other choice is AA (Citi). My credit score is in the mid 700's. Citi doesn't say anything on there application but I would really like the Chase Southwest as we fly more with them. Thoughts on either one?


I see way more people using the Citibank American airlines card. I've seen people using this card at wal mart, bagel boys, LL bean bjs.
But I don't travel on business so I don't see anybody checking into hotels I only eat at restaurants on Fridays not during the week.
so I don't know which card is more popular.

when you travel on vacation which airline do you like better?
