What would be the best way to time the refi with NFCU?  Should I start banking with them now and then refi with them in 6 months or just do all of it in 6 months?  Has anyone had a refi with them recently? How sensitive are they to recent inquiries/new accounts?

 

EDIT: PS. I tried the prequalify site for Discover and didnt have any offers there.

NFCU is not inquiry sensitive. I did a vehicle refi with them and it was easy peasy.

 

In my opinion, leave the Chase Sapphire alone.  Your Amazon card has better rewards.  Consider the Sapphire Preferred if your travel needs would justify the Annual Fee.   Slate is pretty useless, especially since Chase Amazon has decent BT offers.  I currently have an offer to do a BT with 0% until Nov 2013, with a 1% BT fee.

 

I don't like Citi, so I would personally never apply for one. 

Amex BCE is a decent card, I would consider that one.

Re: Credit card wish list (phase 2)

My wish list is for an apr below 7% without rewards and no annual fee. Help anyone.

No interest in low interest rate credit cards?
