Re: CU CLI? Anyone?

illtakecreditforthat/All,

 

Agreed.

 

Unfortunately Alliant did not feel the same. They seem a bit more conservative on CLI's (at least they were in my case). In all fairness I had just initiated a substantial BT that had not posted before statement cut so it looked as if I had large balances on 2 cards instead of 1. I explained, but the loan officer I get is a bit rigid (no soup for you!). I am patient, and will try again in 6-12 mos (card will be 1.5-2yrs old). My alliant cc is a very small CL compared to others. Because of the toy limit, I dont use it. We'll see what happens in the future.

 

Whoo Hooo...Power to the Consumer!!

Excellent!

 

The more information being discussed about CUs supports the proposition that in this environment they represent a stable and progressive alternative to major banks.  At a minimum, CU credit cards should be an integral part of your credit mix.

ocheosa,

 

Thanks for the info.  Alliant is my oldest CU, but I may wait for CLI.  Did they do a hard pull?  I haven't heard of anyone get an Alliant CLI

I want PATIENCE...and I want it NOW

Hi,

 

Yes, it was a hard (EQ). I think I remember someone else mentioning problems with Alliant CLI's. But as it seems to be a decision made by the LO, YMMV. Unfortunately, I had the same person both when opening the account and for the CLI.
