They pull EQ and no, I wouldn't consider them easy for credit approvals.

@jsickz32

Thanks for the information. I have been trying to get 'that membership out of the way first' was the best way to go. I'm glad that you gave more detailed information.

Re: DCU Pending #2 [Membership + CC App]

I called today my application is under review and I verified they received all my docs. The CSR told me it might be until the end of the week before I get approved, according to the New Accounts dept. Mind you I apped for membership 12am on Monday. The CSR tried to get a set timeline for me but couldnt get anything more concrete than what I just said, she was nice. I honestly, just don't know what the hold up is. It's like going through flipping customs.

 

Damn it, jsickz32 would you think it's possible for me to recon on my limit after I get the welcome package and membership no.? Lol.

@jsickz32

I was approved for $10k with 7 inq- all of my revolving credit is 6 mos or newer (8 reporting at the time I app'd). I know they want at least a CS of 675 for their unsecured Visa. I remember reading that they will approve with some baddies but not recent ones. In my case my Ch13 is still reporting but its 8 years from the date of dismissal.

@warjar

I believe they also use an outside source for identity verification. Idk but that might be the reason for any delays in membership processing.

@jsickz32

I have been a member so long- I can't remember the turnaround time. I just sent in my packet and a week later my welcome packet was in the mail- that was 8 years ago. TBH, I can't remember how I was affiliated/organization needed to be eligible. I live in So Cal and have never stepped foot in a branch.

Re: DCU Pending #2 [Membership + CC App]

@jsickz - Waiting a yr. is fine, I'll just take them to build a good relationship with them. Do they HP for a CLI though or is there a way around that for these guys?

 

@Lexi - Oh I see, thanks for the tip Lexi, hopefully that's all it is. I'll keep you all posted.
