There is no set timeframe that Discover publicly discloses. In order to determine whether you qualify for an account, Discover will review the information that you provide on the application and your credit report, and will not focus only on the bankruptcy. It is important to note that the Discover it® Secured Credit Card is meant for people looking to build or rebuild their credit, so the approval criteria will be more lenient.
Discover does not disclose how long after bankruptcy one can get approved for a Discover card. Discover will not approve you for a credit card if you have a pending bankruptcy case, as it states on its terms and conditions: "You represent that there are no current lawsuits or bankruptcy proceedings that might affect our interest in the Security Deposit Account or the Funds."
In general, the longer it’s been since your bankruptcy was discharged or dismissed, the better your chances of getting approved for any credit card will usually be.
Nothing's for sure, but you should be able to get approved, yes.
