Re: Has anyone had their NFCU credit card APR lowered?

[ Edited ]

I sent them this in a message:

 

I was recently informed by other NFCU members that credit card holders are/may be eligible for an APR reduction each year. I would like to request it at this time. Thank You,

My name.

 

It workerd, they lowered mine from 12.65 to 9.65. It took a few hours and, it showed up on my account. Thats the lowest they go on a rewards cash back card.

I was only expecting 1% decrease, they really surprised me with the 3%. What can I say it's NAVY. I almost passed out with the credit line. Your welcome Rootpooty, good luck.

Thanks - I did a search and I see that people tend to get a 1% reduction.  Has anyone gotten a reduction larger than that?

Re: Has anyone had their NFCU credit card APR lowered?

You guys must have better credit scores than we do (ours are in  the high 600s, like 670 or so) or fewer accounts open or something.  They said no to both of us.  No to my husband and no to me, for both cards.

 

interestingly, they gave both of us credit limit increases recently, though.

Too many accounts; too many debts; lots of open credit, and lots of utilized credit. Scores somewhere in the 600s - I have no earthly idea exactly what number, but not 700 like it was, briefly.
