Xcel so called Pre-Approvals more like Pre-selected lol

I wish more CU's were like Penfed with real Pre-Approvals instead of these Pre-Selected Offers. They are nice to get if nothing more than to let you know your credit is getting better. Xcel must have change their scoring system? I forgot to ask the loan officer what  FICO scoring model they use now. It's not the old FICO mortgage score, thats for sure! NASA FCU is still using the old scoring model.

I'm guessing FICO 9 EX from the current score posted. For those that may be interested in this CU.

OMG Gmood, you and you're CUs! I love it. I'm only at two (Bethpage and Vantage) so far, and still have DCU and Andrews to add, possibly this week, which will take me to four.  I was also looking at Alliant for their 3% VS sometime down the line. How many are you a member of?

 

ETA:

Oh snap, I forgot about SDFCU! I think it's time for a spreadsheet. I losing track of some of my accounts. Smiley Embarassed

You sir, have earned yourself another bookmark! I thought I had it good with Bethpage's 1.0% APY, but I see I can do better! How did you find so many lucrative CUs? I could be earning so much more. Darn, more research! 

 

Current lineup:

 

CUs:

1. SDFCU

2. Bethpage

3. Vantage

 

Banks:
1. PNC

2. Fidelity

3. Chase (about to close and split amounts between Bethpage and Vantage)

 

ETA:

Dang, forgot another......4. American Funds. Yeah, time for a spreadhseet.....

@Gmood1

 

What's Andrews like as a CU?  I could stand to add another.  Right now I have (CUs only) NFCU, PenFed, SDFCU, Apple and NASA.

Andrews FCU seems to have their stuff together. They offer some great products and rates across the board. It's a SP on TU to join and all you need is a 720 FICO EX for the best rates. They were probably the fastest of all my CUs at getting my debit card and checks out.
