NFCU CC Chances

[ Edited ]

I have just signed up for a membership/account with NFCU and I have two questions. First, how long should I wait to apply for a CC; and second, what are my chances on getting approved for a nRewards CC? My current scores are in my sig below and my income is 66k.

PresP
4/23/13: TU 615, EX 600, EQ 581
1/16/13: TU 585, EX 525, EQ 514
Goal: For now just get approved for FHA 7/13

Cards: Cap1 Secured - $200; NFCU $6k

Re: NFCU CC Chances

Thanks jsickz32,

 

My scores are EQ 514, EX 525, TU 585 and unfortunately I do have some baddies as I am just at the beginning of my journey. I'm sure I won't get the 7k but I have been in the constant denial mode. Do you think I will get approved with that information?

Re: NFCU CC Chances

My dad was approved for 2k cashRewards, 2k platinum and 5k navcheck with scores little higher than you but still in 500s. He had a bk7 from 09 and multiple COs. So yeah lol he also got his truck refinanced with them and went from 24% to 6%.

Re: NFCU CC Chances

If you do try please keep us updated. There has been multiple stories on here of approvals with scores in the 500's. Don't go into it expecting much and see what happens. They have a great secured card if all else fails, and the possibility of it graduating is there. Good luck!

Re: NFCU CC Chances

Starting to wish I would have apped for an unsecured card rather than just applying solely for the secured version. I thought I had no chance. Cross my fingers and hope they insecure at 1yr!

Re: NFCU CC Chances

I know scupra, that's why I'm hopeful. I've seen on other sites of a handful of people within weeks of bk and eq scores lower than mine getting $1-3k right away, but like I said, I'm prepared if they won't approve me quite yet.

Re: NFCU CC Chances

Thanks everyone for the info! I'm gonna do it but I'm going to wait at least 24 hours from opening up the account so I'll apply tomorrow and let you all know! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for a while!
