    We're in similar positions right now. Do you have any recent dept store cards? I see you're asking about them so I was just wondering if you'd had any luck obtaining any. Thx

    Hi Marie!

    I am on the credit wagon right now but I saw that Roni got a Target card so I thought I would ask a few questions.

    My Macy's and Robinsons-May cards survived my 1998 BK. I got the $2K Nordstrom card last month. Paid the 1st bill yesterday. if you apply for Nordstrom let me know. I think I have their credit dept. telephone number at home. You can call and discuss your situation with them before you apply.

    I'm not sure if we even have a Nordstroms here... :) I'm adding a dept store card this year.

    I did notice that my old, chronically confused file (w/my mother's) is showing a sears card on my Experian from when I was 6 or so... Not bad. Charge card before I was even barely in school. Helps me though. I'm just wanting that additional credit score boost from having 1 dept store card on my other 2 reports.

    I can be an AU on a card or 2 so I'm thinking of doing that. Just not sure if that will have the same effect or not.
