Am looking for a credit card for a discharged bankrupt to start and build a new credit rating?

I was made a bankrupt in May 2002 and discharged in May 2005 at the stockport County Court. I am looking for a new credit start with a new credit card to enable me to rebuild my credit rating. I live with my wife who does have a mortgage and several credit cards.

    Why dont you start off being an additional card holder on one of your wife’s cards?

    Capital One credit cards are easy to get. You wont get much of a limit on it but its a start.

    Try Orchard Bank. They specialize in credit cards for people who have experienced bankruptcy or other difficulties. They will likely give you an unsecured card with a small credit limit to begin with. If you use it for small purchases and pay them on time faithfully, you’ll take a step toward re-establishing your credit.

    ok, mine was a year earlier (may 2001- may 2004) but this is what I did.

    Oct 2005 (so thats nearly 18 months after) I applied for a credit card with Capital One. They offered me one with a £200 limit but I had to pay a £200 deposit. I then used this to buy petrol with nd paid it off, in full, WITHOUT FAIL every month, sometimes twice a month.

    This rebuilt my credit history so that after about 9 months I applied for a card from RBS, which I got allbeit with 1/2 the normal starting credit limit.

    I now have 3 cards, the capital one card (keep thinking about getting my deposit back, but keep it because I cant spend too much on it), the RBS one that has my purchases on (like a new TV a few months ago) and a barclaycard I took out recently and used for balance transfer as my interest free period was up on the RBS one).

    I think having a decent salary helped with my applications but as you can see it is more than possible.

    Bad credit credit cards have been developed for people with poor credit and want to improve their credit rating. There are two types of credit cards: secured and unsecured credit cards. You have to choose between these two, based on various factors with the stable income being the crucial one.
