No other major card company is going to start someone with a score in the 500s with a $5k limit.
Oh I did not know they were that easy to get approved for, app on then people lol.

I was told being active duty helps get approved for one like someone else said their score determines their limit. Whereas if they weren't active duty they wouldn't get approved.
I don't think this rumor is true. NFCU gave me a 22k limit with a settled judgment reporting... I've never been in the military, and my husband has been out since 2009.
I dont think this rumor holds any merit. They have no way to track who is active duty and who is not...
