A little stunned, Approved for USAA Visa

[ Edited ]

Just decided to get my foot into a nice bank and from everything i've heard USAA, NFCU,     And Penfed are the way to go,after getting denied for a CC at penfed,    and not qualifying for NFCU i joined USAA   without even opening a checking or savings account i applied for the USAA Visa.

 

 

 

Yea i know the APR is high but this is BY FAR my highest limit CC. my highest limit card right now is carecredit at $3000 but my highest limit Visa\MC is only $1500 >_< over 4x my highest limit >_<

 

Time to consolidate my other cards!

 

Approved Credit Limit$6,200.00
Current APRs

Purchase APR


23.9% (Prime+20.65%)

Re: A little stunned, Approved for USAA Visa

this approval inspired me to close a few accounts >_<

 

closed; Discover more card stuck at $500 for 4 years, PC Richard card, Victoria secret card, Barclays card, Kay Jewelers card, CAPITAL ONE IS NEXT >_<

Now USAA is going to the front line of my card even without rewards >_>

Re: A little stunned, Approved for USAA Visa

My hopes are to one day build up my FICOs, then be approved for a Amex, then cancel my Orchard and CapOne, as my amex is my oldest account.  I've been a member of USAA for 14 years, but no way am I able to be approved for their unsecured cards.

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board and $500 secured CC
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board and $80k in revolving credit

Get those baddies removed!!!

Congrats. Banks and CUs definitely seem to be giving out higher APRs now. I just got hit with a 20% APR for my newest card, secondest highest APR for me.

Re: A little stunned, Approved for USAA Visa

Congrats on the approval.

Would you mind sharing what your credit background looks like to help others decide if it is even worth applying for the usaa card. Like utilization, any baddies, etc.

Again Congrats on the approval
