Re: Experience with UFCU in TX?

I started with 1 in 12/07 and opened another in 8/08 both opened with 5K CL.   I merged them this year and bumped it up to 15K without them blinking an eye at it.  They will work with you and are great to deal with.  I had my car though them as well and when I would change brackets with them they'd run CR and bump it down accordingly without a fee.  Just recently refi'd the car after being with JFCU in VA for 4.49% @ ATFCU without too many questions as well.

Congrats on the successes!

 

Can you share a few stats?  When you merged and bumped your CL this year, what is your FICO and CR looking like?  Any derogs?  How much uti?   What does your other CL's look like?  AAoA and oldest?

Re: Experience with UFCU in TX?

I joined NFCU and Addison.  I think I might consider this one too! 

 

Oh and PSECU.  I went to a qualifying school.  So that experian fico looks nice and I read some posts that they are pretty credit friendly.

 

I want to add 3-5 good accounts.  so far I have

 

NFCU $20k  (equifax pull) hasn't yet reported account

Addison $15k (pending app, but they requested paystubs and w2 - so think this looking good) (experian pull)

 

 

Any other suggestions

Wamu PC to Chase Freedom+ $3.5k

Juniper $2k

Target Visa $1k

OldNavy $1.15k

Chevron $1.5k

Orchard $800

CapOne $750

PayPal $300

 

New Accts:
NFCU $20k

Discover ?Something?  Don't know CL or type of card for sure....they keep confusing me (I made new post on this one in main CC threads)

I plan to cancel Orchard, CapOne, PayPal and possibly Target. 

 

Since they add very little to my available CL's and will continue to help age for 10 years, I don't see a reason to keep them.
