Re: Penfed Approvals Please Post Your Data For Others

I was approved for PenFed Credit products in August 2015. I had a penfed share account since mid 2014, I joined with a dirty EQ(bankruptcy was just about to fall off my credit reports). I couldnt get any products from them for a long time. 

 

But, after hearing from Revelate on the fico forums commenting on some approvals circa 8-2015, I thought why not lets try it. I was absolutely shocked when I was approved for the promise visa with this low limit and their highest apr. I was just so happy to get in! Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 8.42.11 PM.png

 

So I thought, why not try for one more card. I decided to go for the travel amex. During the different steps of the application process, I was on the edge of my seat. When it finally finalized, I almost dropped out my seat! $17,500.00 at their highest apr.

The next day I got the letter/email from them about the price you pay for credit. My NextGen fico was 665. I from memory, probably had about 40 inquiries on EQ and one negative paid charge off from 2010 in the amount of $300.00. My utilzation was probably anywhere from 3-6%. I was floored and so happy! 

 

I also got an acess america checking count and a thrifty line of credit in the of $500.00

 

About 4 months later I applied for the PenFed Visa Gold. Was not instantly approved, but the next day I was approved for $7,500.00. 

 

2 months ago I applied for a CLI on my PenFed Promise and got $2,000.00. PenFed has been nothing but amazing to me.

I went ahead and applied for a PLOC @ 15k.  It told me the APR and some other information like payment date, maturity date etc...  but the app went pending after all that.

Denied. They want to see payment history on new Penfed account which is understandable.  No harm, no foul.   Couldn't tell me my next gen score but said I'll recieve a letter with it
