Re: My fiance' is now a member of NFCU!!

I was actually looking up creditpulls to see who they approve, and I was shocked as well to see the scores and limits people received. He has a nice annual income so that is working in his favor for sure.

BK Discharged 08/10 (The dark times)
NavChek (5000) Cap1 (2500 & 1000) hhGregg (1500) Amazon (900) & WalMart (500) Lowes (300)

Goal: No apps until 07/2013 & 700's across the board

Re: My fiance' is now a member of NFCU!!

Yea the collection removal should boost up his scores. It sure did with mines. That is a good idea to just wait it out and pay off your other debts before applying for any credit card. I don't know much about NFCU, but I am assuming since they are a credit union that they should be able to work with you guys situation and hook you up with a low credit limit to start and work your way up from there. If anything there is the secured credit card route to help you rebuild you guys credit score. Smiley Happy

TU 746 (10/13)

Worst case, I would try for a card with them. The worst that can happen is that they say no, and NFCU offers no-fee balance transfers. If they give you a decent rate, it would be a good opportunity to refi some revolving debt.

FICO 04 scores: 809 (EQ) 812 (EX) 818 (TU)

Amex Platinum NPSL - Citi HHonors Sig. $58k - BMW Ultimate $40k

Congrats and welcome to the NFCU family! If youre on the wall about applying then follow your gut. But there is no timeline to wait to establish a relationship BEFORE applying for products. They are awesome with limits and helping you build the kind of life you want. Just be good to them! Best of luck!!! Smiley Wink

Congrats!  My fiancé has been a member since late 90's.  Little did I know, until reading this forum, what a great CU they are!
