If you want some free money for your poker jones, how about $250?  If you get a Chase Ink Bold Charge card, and make only ONE purchase, you will get $250!!  (offer expired).  This is a business card, but anyone can be a business.  That’s called being a “sole proprietor”.  If that sounds like you, here is how you should fill out the application.

Here is the IRS definition of a “Sole Proprietor”. Will your credit score drop if you apply for new credit?  FICO says, “If it does, it probably won’t drop much.”

Suggestions on how to avoid Bankruptcy:  If it’s credit card debt that is killing you, see my post about 0% balance transfer credit cards to take a breather from paying high interest, while you regroup.  If that doesn’t work for you, watch my Peer To Peer Lending post.  Here’s another option: If you have a good job with disposable income, but all of that extra money is going to pay interest on your huge debt, do you know someone who is loaded?  If so, they can only get about 1% to 2% on their money now.  Assemble your bills and paystubs.  Offer them 4% if they’ll play bank and give you a consolidation loan to pay off all your cards.  They’ll want to know how quickly you can pay them back.  If that is not an option, approach a bank for a consolidation loan.
