Not sure.That Credit Union might be for only select members such as military and such. That would dis-qualify me for sure.

USAA is a bank, not a credit union, quick FYI Smiley Tongue . if you have no military background (or anything else listed in their eligiblity list) or a family member who is a full member and has purchased P&C products through them, then you are only eligible for partial member status, which is limited to banking, and 3 different credit card options. 

 

You can get into alliant by making a donation to one of their non-profit organizations listed on their site if you don't qualify to bank with them.

If you are new to Alliant, my experience has been that they are not very generous with their initial CLs. When my fiance first applied, his initial CL was very low. We called and requested reconsideration, especially considering he had also opened a savings account with a considerable balance. After the rep spoke with underwriting, she conveyed that they could only go as high as $3K since he was new to Alliant. She suggested he request a CLI after the relationship was more established.

 

Note that as of our asking about six months ago, Alliant responded they do not give automatic CLIs. You must request a CLI, upon which they perform a HARD inquiry.

 

My experience with USAA, which I don't think is a credit union btw, is that their customer service is fabulous.
