Empress,

 

Given your current scores, I would apply for a NFCU secured Visa. The reason is I don't think you will get approved for any unsecured card this class s after your discharge. A positive thing is that secured NFCU Visa will graduate to the unsecured card over time.  Anything I would do is get a secured loan as well. Both of these are in 700 in 24 plan and will help get that score up real quick!

 

Just give yourself time and you will see things get better!

Re: Working my Rebuild!

[ Edited ]

Update time!

 

Got some extra $$$ in from some overtime I worked over the holidays and wanted to do something useful with it - so I decided to put $500 into my DW's Navy savings account and opened up a secured card for her.  They didn't like her well enough to approve unsecured last month, so this will have to do.  Now I just wait for it to report and she can say bye-bye Credit One  Smiley Happy

Re: Working my Rebuild!

Hello, I am a rebuilder myself and joined Navy in January with the Cash rewards card, did you try for a CLI after the third statement before you got the increase later?My first one will not cut until 2/17, so I will not try until after May2017 when three statements will have cut. I am paying my card off on thursday. 22K is a nice comeup from 500 SL.

It definitely is - Based on my own experience and everything I've absorbed from these forums, I offer the following advice for all new Navy cardholders:

 

Wait until the first AR *after* your first 90 days before going for that increase.  AR occurs at the beginning of each of the following months - Jan, Mar, May, Jul, Sep, Nov

 

Blackswizz, In your case, I would actually wait until July since your 3rd statement will cut after the May AR.
