NAVY FEDERAL EXTREME APPROVAL

so I thought I should share, I signed up for navy fed and got a $5000 sig card .... my util is about 50%, scores low 600'   ...I went on a app spree a couple months ago denied by 4 approved by 5 cards... so i was surprised by the approval ...

 

I also tried to apply for another card w/ them but they denied the second app....

 

I have only 1 coll and a judgment reporting on 1 bureau

 

but my husband applied a with 580 scores, default student loans, IRS judgment, co, and 2 coll and was approved for 2 cards both for $10k each

 

we were floored .....

Re: NAVY FEDERAL EXTREME APPROVAL

Congrats !

 

That's a heck of an approval for $10K eeach with a judgement and collections. Was it instant approval or recon?

 

How old are the collections and judgement?

 

I have read on ehre people with scores win the high 500's and even 600's getting flat out denied and offfered secured cards.

Re: NAVY FEDERAL EXTREME APPROVAL

I know how you feel, same thing happed to me.   I applied thinking I may get declined and POW a $10,000 credit line.   I was on the phone with a friend and started screaming like a school girl in disbelief.  I love NFCU!  I have since obtained an unsecured loan of $500 to build my credit more.  NFCU has been great!  I hope to get a car loan thru them someday soon.
