how long have you been with USAA?  if you have a history and you like them, stick with it.  With that said, I have heard almost nothing but good about NFCU as well.  Nothing wrong with joining both?  I currently have three diffrenet bank accounts - BofA, local CU and NFCU....each have their purpose.

Like you said.....Citi and Chase are worthless to you now.  NFCU is the place to be for us people.  Since you can easily obtain membership, I don't see why you shouldn't.  The credit card limits alone make it the card to get.....I was waiting and waiting to get a pre-approval from Capt 1, but now I'm aiming for NFCU and Barclays are my cards and screw Cap 1 since it won't grow with me.  NFCU may be a valuable partner if later you are looking at other loans....

Re: Nfcu vs Usaa

I have nothing bad to say about NFCU. I love love love them! I have my checking with direct deposit, 2 savings, 2 credit cards, and a Roth IRA. I solely use them because they are willing to give me a chance while not many other creditors would. Go with navy, you wont regret it!

Does NFCU pull a CR to open a share account?

Re: Nfcu vs Usaa

yes, they do....I think more than anything to see if you're currently in a BK (pre-discharge) & to see if you have burned them previously.
