Experience with UFCU in TX?

I've been a member there for three years - just wondering if ya'll could share your CC experiences with them.  They base their APRs on your credit scores (740+ gets the lowest), so I'd get a 9.9%, but I want to know if they give generous CLs.  I don't qualify for NFCU, and can't seem to talk my sister and bro in law into joining, so please don't suggest that as an option.

 

Thank you!!!

I'm not in the area, but it looks to have a good rate (6.9) and others can join (not in TX) with a $20 donation.  I spoke to CS to ask about membership (although  I'm done with my spree) and the person was really nice (good signt).  Another good alternative along with Addison.

They are great to work with for a car loan, and they are very responsive.  But I don't have experience with them for a CC.  I don't want to waste the INQ if their CLs are tiny.

I doubt they'll come up on whogavemecredit.com, but if you qualify for the 9.9, I would doubt the cls would be tiny.

Re: Experience with UFCU in TX?

Hey,

I have been with UFCU for almost 2 years now and they have been really good to me. I have refinance auto loans with them starting at 7.4%. Then back in march 2009 i requested for a lower APR and yes they approved to reduced it down to 5.95%. I was happy for that..

I also have a credit card with them started with $3K limit, then i increased to $4k, then $6.5k, then now at $10k. The CC APR now at 9.9%, initially 11.9%. They say to get 6.9% you need a credit score of 740 or better and I'm working on that. I'm almost there, maybe I am there already.

So far so good, they are pretty cool, the best Credit Union I ever joined. I also have join Texas Tech FCU but rarely used their services..

What were your scores when you got the $3K limit?  I've got a 10K with PenFed and with Citi, plus others.  They have my car loan at 4.95%.

They pulled EQ in Arizona.  They give great customer service, and they are available 24/7.  I've had cars financed through them for almost four years.  UFCU.org.

[ Edited ]

Thanks for the info as I've been looking for maybe a 2nd CU to add onto my NFCU membership. 

 

Can you tell me where you found the info about what rate you would pay for what FICO score?  I see the loan rates talk about excellent, good, fair, etc credit but I can't find what scores fit into each category.

Re: Experience with UFCU in TX?

If you rest your mouse above the explanations, it will give a description.  When I called, the CSR told me that 740 or above is excellent credit, 680+ is good credit, and anything below 680 falls into the other ranges.  They refi'd my 17.5% car loan to 11.5% a few years ago, then dropped me to 4.95% in 2008.
