NFCU GoRewards Approval!

Hey All! 

   I was granted membership to NFCU this afternoon through the navy league and I apped for the GoRewards Visa and was instantly approved for a SL of $1,300 at 18%. Not a huge SL but the second highest I have received since I began rebuilding! 

 

Data Points 

 

FICO 8 - I am actually unsure as to what bureau they pulled but my current FICO 8 scores are TU 606, EXP 606, and EQ 598. My assumption is whatever scoring model they used, it yielded higher scores that the FICO 8.

Income - $5100 monthly household income

Derogs - 2 charge offs over four years old.

Lates - I have a lot of late payments (currently disputing) with AES and FedLoan but they are over 4 years old and happened prior to a forbearence.

UTI - Current UTI is about 30% but with the four new accounts I just opened, it will go down to 12%.

 

I was pretty shocked I was instanly approved but I am extremely happy that I even got in with NFCU. My plan is to utilize the GoRewards card for one of my monthly bills, transfer the cash into my NFCU checking and then once the statement cuts, pay it in full to build a relationship as I am looking to take advantage of their 100% financing mortage option. If anyone has a better recomendation such as leaving a small balance, let me know!

Congrats on becoming a member and getting instantly approved. Honestly i dont think there is a correct way to use your card to insure cli. I think when the time is right, they will give you one if you qualify. Ive seen posters put a lunch on their card in 3 months and dtill get a 15 k increase. Just wnjoy your new puppy and watch it growSmiley Wink

Re: NFCU GoRewards Approval!

How long did it take from when you applied for membership to get approved? How were you notified?

I just applied on Monday so I am trying to be patient.  I joined through the Navy League, as well.

Re: NFCU GoRewards Approval!

I had a little bit of a weird experience. About 4 days after I emailed the app in, I got patient and drove to an nfcu branch where I was promptly told they cannot process navy league applications there. I then called customer service again and they got membership on the line to immediately process the application. On the same call I apped for the go rewards and was instantly approved.
