Re: What is up with NAVY giving low CL CC these days?

[ Edited ]

NFCU has shown me massive love,

 

I have gotten everything I asked for from them,

 

CLOC 15K best interest rate, Platnium instant aprroval 24K best interst rate SP only, SP to 25K after 91 days. 

 

Although not highest SL, I have a long postive history with USAA. 

 

YMMV.

NFCU has been very generous to me. I think they look for low utilization and of course on time payments.

Re: What is up with NAVY giving low CL CC these days?

I have to say that Navy Federal is a financial institution that I find way too scary to do business with. I see the crazy high limits posted for people with average income and low credit scores, along with some of the BK hits posted on them around here - and I wonder how they pass their Federal audits. I think they are at a high risk of insolvency, based on what I have seen. They need to tighten up a whole lot, and do some balance chasing on some folks. Just my thoughts.

Re: What is up with NAVY giving low CL CC these days?

Two like threads have been merged into one.
"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

NFCU is the largest credit union in the country and has over $82 billion in assets.  I think you don't have much to worry about them becoming insolvent.

Re: What is up with NAVY giving low CL CC these days?

Big limits dont necessarily have to only go to those with high incomes imo. I often see many who have gone bk come from backgrounds with high income. In my humble opinion its how anyone manages the credit they are given responsibly that can often be rewarded with a higher limit. Sure i know high income is great and i wish i could have it but i for one am glad to see Navy give the opportunities to us lower income earners and those whove made mistakes.

I am glad that they are able to help everyone, I just don't understand how they can manage it. The Federal Insurance people look at what these places are doing and if they are taking too much risk, they get reigned in. I saw one person on here just yesterday who is burning banks for $100K, and $40K to Navy as one of the victims. They didn't lose their job or have a crisis, they just overextended and decided to cut their losses. I know they can't make more than $80K a year or so because if they did, Chapter 7 would be off the table. Giving so much unsecured credit to someone like that is just setting them up for failure.
