I took the plunge...NFCU

So I've been reading all the wonderful stories about NFCU and decided to join on yesterday. Well I received a call today from a CSR regarding the online site. After he finished telling me about the great benefits of NFCU he says, Mr. ... You are eligible for our Flagship card, little did he know I was planning on applying on Jan 2nd (paid off cc's to get utl down, waiting for update CR). After providing my info, he said it would be 3-5 business days before a decision. Wow. He said, they are behind with reviewing applications.  I'm a little nervous right now. 

Starting Scores 12/26/12: Exp (Fako):659| Equ (Fako): 719|TU (Fako) 665
Current: 1/1/13 Equ (FICO) 649, TU 613

Did he give you an access number for your account?  If so you can always check here to find out the status:  NFCU CC/Loan status

 

EDIT: Also wanted to add that I joined and app'd last Friday and I didn't get the email notice until Xmas day.  So yea I would say that the Xmas rush is definitely on and I'm sure between the rush and vacations they are a little behind.

Re: I took the plunge...NFCU

I have had NFCU online site give me the 3-5 day message and was able to view an approved status within 24 hours. It may be because of the holidays they are really behind but it is not their norm.

Best financial advice I ever got: "Just imagine what an adult would do and do that."

Starting Score: 500's
Current Score: EQ 701 (FICO) TU 721 (FICO) EX 715 (Quizzle)
Goal Score: 760 ALL
