Living on the West coast.Which bank or credit union?

Just recently(7 days ago) relocated from North Carolina to Seattle Washington. Can still see Montana and all its mountains in my memory. What a beautiful drive.So now i'm thinking about applying for a credit card here on the left coast but not sure which excellent banks or credit unions pull Trans Union or Experian.I may as well make the most of the fact that living on the west coast will mean a different CRA pull. i like the idea of not having to use Equifax so much. Any suggestions? Oh btw,think credit cards with large limits.

Re: Living on the West coast.Which bank or credit union?

I just moved from FL to Seattle 2 years ago. BECU (Boeing CU) gives generous lines and pulled EX for me. If you can get in with NFCU they pull EX and TU and give great cl's. other than that... Amos all cards I've applied for on West Coast have been those two CB. Hardly anyone pulls EQ out here except Discover (sometimes) and smaller CU's.
