Fort Knox Federal Credit Union

I just got approved for a Fort Knox Platinum Visa Card and it is awesome.  5% cash back on gas and 1.25% cash back on everything else.  And I thought the Penfed  Cashback Visa card was one of the few that didnt rotate the categories.  I am very happy!!!  Starting CL of $2000.  I will take it.

 

The credit card approval was a breeze.  I live in California.  I am a member of PSECU & Navy Fed, but Fort Knox was alot easier and less of a wait to get a product from them.

Re: Fort Knox Federal Credit Union

I had my Experian frozen as well as Equifax and they pulled TU which is my highest.  They asked about Experian and I told them it was frozen and they said okay.

Re: Fort Knox Federal Credit Union

What all was involved in the membership/visa application?  How many days?  Did they ask for proof of income or anything?  I know most CU's aren't instant decision kind of places.

 

thanks!

Re: Fort Knox Federal Credit Union

The membership was$15 and I had to fax them paystubs, soc. security card and drivers license. It only took 2 days for the whole process.  I applied online and received a call from them next day that I was approved pending income and identity verification.

Re: Fort Knox Federal Credit Union

Awesome, I think I will hold off for a little bit though.  I am flying under the radar because of my new Barclays Travelocity Amex, don't want to rock the boat on that one.

 

But I will certainly be joining and getting the Platinum Visa as soon as my 6 month "probation" period with Barclays is up.

 

EDIT: I forgot to say CONGRATS!

Sounds like a credit union that's hard to get into and hard to get out of...  Smiley Wink

Re: Fort Knox Federal Credit Union

How do you like the Travelocity Amex?  What are the scores needed for that card?  I have a Juniper MC from Barclays with a 0 balance.  Never had any problems with them.

Re: Fort Knox Federal Credit Union

I have the no AF one.  I love it!  I use Travelocity quite frequently (once to twice a month) and the rewards add up fast.  I have only had the card since December of 2010 and I have already gotten over 13,000 points (including the 5,000 first use bonus).

 

My scores when I got it were in the low low 700's (I think my TU that they pulled was like a 705 at the time).  Less than 10% util, no inq's, a few 30 day lates from 04/08.  Approved for a $4,500 limit at 19.24% (I never carry anyways, so who cares).  Several new accounts from the last 12 months (10 I think).

 

If you aren't approved, just call in a recon, they are very good about that.  I recon'ed my limit up to $5,500 with a 5 minute phone call to a very nice person. BE WARNED though, you can't apply for anything for the next 6 month after you open your account, otherwise they will close it on the spot.
