    Is it possible to get Barclaycard Initial 6 years after BR? 2nd Jan 12 at 8:52 PM
    Hi all,

    I was just wondering, if it's possible to get the Barclaycard Initial credit card once the bankruptcy has dropped off the credit file (6 years after the BR)?

    The reason I ask is I was looking on their site and it says,

    "An Initial Credit Card could be right for you, if:
    * You have never been declared bankrupt"

    This sounds to me like they will never accept an ex bankrupt even if it has dropped off your file?

    Thanks a lot,
