Penfed Pre-Approval!!!!

I logged into my Penfed online to pay my credit card bills. I noticed I got pre-approval offer for another credit card. By the way, I got promotional inquiry from Penfed last month.  They offered me to add $4600 to my Penfed Gas Rewards Platinum or choose Promise Card or the Penfed Gold Card. First, I chose $4600CL to add to my Penfed Cash Rewards Platinum Visa. It came back with the error message. It is not eligible account. I had to choose the Promise Visa with 7.49% APR. The application was pre-filled. I didn't have to fill out anything. It asked me a few thing. I was instantly approved for $4600.  I will receive the card within 7-10 days. They had to manual review my application. How likely am I going to get the card with this pre-approval? Was it approved?

Yeah it's already been approved (see second image).  I got the same message when I was approved a couple weeks ago.  I'm surprised they wouldn't let you add the offered credit line to your existing card.  Either way congrats. :smileyhappy:  Also as you probably already know this should only be a SP.

I was under the impression that such pre-approvals only appear on April 1, and every three months. I have not seen it appearing in the middle of the month.

Anyway, congratulations to the offers.

Thanks!!! I didn't want another credit card from them. I just want to get $4600 CLI to my Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards Visa. The system didn't let me to do it.  I didn't want to get another card.

Thanks!!! I didn't see it at the beginning of the month. I didn't see it yesterday. It showed up today. It was strange.

Re: Penfed Pre-Approval!!!!

I wish to see those offers for myself. I joined PenFed about 18 months ago and have their Cash Rewards card, and no offers so far.

Re: Penfed Pre-Approval!!!!

I joined Penfed and got the Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards last January. I didn't get any pre-approval until now. It  has been almost 16 months. I have Checking, Savings, Money Market Savings (opened for 5% cash back for gas and waive AF). I don't have any other loans with them.  Recently, I saw promotional inquiry on my EQ. I got the 4.99% BT checks with no fee from them yesterday. I didn't use it . I put it into the paper shredder.

Re: Penfed Pre-Approval!!!!

Congrats, Ron!  Have missed the almost daily approval postings from a month or so ago.  I, too, wish I could get these pre-approvals.  I did receive the BT checks a week or so ago and haven't used them.  I think the lates on the mortgage I have with them are what's holding me back even though they are going on 6 years.  Have perfect payment history on everything else with them and most of it opened in the last few years.

Re: Penfed Pre-Approval!!!!

BigBS,

 

I didn't expect to get any pre-approval from them. They are very conservative. They only approved $5K for Penfed Platinum Cash Visa. I got those BT checks yesterday, I put  it into the shredder. I never got those checks sice I joined. You might get those pre-approval soon. You just have to watch out those offers.

I'm not worried about it because it's clearly something I don't need.  It would be great if it did, but I'm okay without it.  I think the next thing I would like is an interest rate reduction on my mortgage.  Probably about a year from working on that.
