Baller,

 

Another data point that may help is if you have multiple products from Penfed, how long in between applications.  For me, that would be important to know how long it took to get approved for other Penfed products (i.e. immediately, 2 months, 6 months, etc...)

What can I say about PenFed other than they are at the top of my list of favorite lenders. Joined with dirty EQ last summer and promptly shot down. Tried again in October and promptly labled an Egyptian. Gave it a third try begining of April and fared well. Instant approval on the Cash Rewards to 16.5k but turned down on a second card or PLOC. Since I'd already taken a pull I also opened checking and apped for an auto loan. Still looking for the right truck to pull the trigger on the auto loan. The PLOC and Thrifty Credit were a result of recon with a manager after completing a survey that was in my email (thanks MusicLover for the data point on this!). He reviewed and overturned the denials on those and made mention of my accounts, history and limits with NFCU. 

 

Product approved and Limit: 1)  Platinum Cash Rewards VISA - $16.5k @ 17.99% 4/3  2) PLOC - $5,000 @ 10.5% 4/20 3) Used Auto Loan - $25,000 @ 4.3% 72 months 4/15 4)  Thrifty Credit OD $500.00 4/20

Thanks Baller and weedeb.  I'm going to try for a cli in 60 days.  My plan is to use the card and immediately make payments after charges post since I am only working with 2 months.  If I'm denied then I'll try again right before that 90 day period is up.

Interesting recon idea.  I should try that on PLOC but they said they want to see payment history on Penfed Promise first so it's doubtful they would overturn.Smiley Sad
