do i call their main number or their credit department ?



Main number should get you there.
 
I had to call in about 4 hrs after I applied so they could verify identity. I called and she walked me through the rest, pin number, etc.

Re: Anxiousely waiting for PenFed decision...

Oh my God...just got off the phone with them. I recently changed my mailing address to a UPS box address since I will be moving soon, so they told me to verify some stuff on my credit report that only I would know. And then the long 3 minute intterogation started......They wanted to  know what credit cards I have, the minimum monthly payments, DOB, email address, drivers license number, balance on this card...mastercard or visa (which I don't remember at all...I never remember that). blah blah blah.
 
They told me to call tomorrow to find out the status. Very nice CSR.....I mean very nice.  I am from South Florida and people are not so nice here, so it was a refreshing change. We shall see ! will keep updated.

Re: Anxiousely waiting for PenFed decision...

Fingers crossed for you!

PenFed is very conservative, relatively speaking, with their money, and I like that in my CCC's. I'm happy knowing that my APR's aren't going to suddenly triple, and that I won't suddenly get CLD'd, not through any fault of my own, but because a bunch of three-piece-suits tried to out-macho each other with risky financial deals.

If they like your finances, and your credit reports are not too stinky, they'll take you. If they're asking your financials, that's generally good, indicating that they're trying to figure out what CL to give you.

Hang in there! It's not all about instant gratification, you know. :smileywink: Hope it all works out for ya.

Nobody seems to understand, you cannot access your account/loan status WITHOUT a membership number. I did not receive one in the mail yet !

We understand that you can't access your account online without an account number. I went crazy when my daughter app'd with BofA, because she did it over the phone, and they didn't have her e-mail address, so she (I) couldn't check online, and she refused to call before the 10 days were up! :smileyvery-happy: (She got the card.)

But PenFed is great for phone service. They were able to funnel me around in the early days, and I had a bunch of wacko questions.

It took them 6 days for a decision on a recon fax and another 5 days for a second application. Talk about being anxious... :smileytongue:

Re: Anxiousely waiting for PenFed decision...

Well, it's been 48 hours since I applied with PenFed. I called them today and they told me that it is still pending. They told me that their decisions are made out of their Eugene, OR office and that it's only 1pm over there and that he thinks they may make a decision today. I am in Florida, so there is a 3 hour difference obviousely. Will keep you updated !
