Re: Couldn't Wait - HOLY COW NFCU - I <3 U

Congrats!

 

I wonder why NFCU is so lenient on their CLs. I know the people in the military aren't rollin' in the dough! Smiley Happy

True but they tend to be responsible and honor their obligations. Much more than the rest of us.

I think you have your backdated AMEX and income to thank. Congrats on the approval. I look forward to trying in April.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

@jpersat

Also keep in mind that security clearance requires good credit. No military member would threaten his/her job by running up a bunch of bills that they cant pay.

Re: Couldn't Wait - HOLY COW NFCU - I <3 U

Even my job in the civilian world required a security clearance including a background check and credit check... I did tell them ahead of time about the ex husbands truck that got repoed.... this was before they pulled my credit profile.... I didn't want them to have any surprises or question my motives by keeping secrets.

@wolf. I forgot, this approval makes me 6 for 6 since September in credit card apps Smiley Wink.

@Calihlove. I figured out your prize. When my card arrives in 6-10 days, my first purchase on the card will be a $25 iTunes gift card. (0.001 of the cards CL). Ill pm you the code off the card once I get it.

Awee that is super sweet but not necessary. I am just glad you got an awesome starting limit..I knew you would! If you want to spend that $25..donate it to an organization that is helping the people in New York Smiley Wink Congrats again!

You sure did get 6/6...perhaps I should start drinking..lol
