"My 1st Credit Card After Chapter 7!": Orchard Bank® Platinum MasterCard® Review
Written by: fozzie76 on 2009-10-03
So my chapter 7 closed Feb 09 and I've been sitting back monitoring my credit for a while. After reading several guides I decided I need to get my 2 credit cards and pay them off routinely. My scores are TU: 589 EXP: 545 & EQ: 621.
I was originally going for Orchard's Secured card but when I filled out the app, they approved me for an unsecured one! No outrageous fees either, just a $59 annual fee.
Any ideas what I should use for my 2nd card? I don't like fee based cards. I'll do a secured card before I'll pay a $150 fee to get a card!

If you have buckle stores around you, theire charge card is a good re-builder, I have it right now. Also if you want secured. Wells fargo and Citibank both have good secured cards.
