I joined NFCU yesterday. I was planning to open a secured visa but when I logged into my account for the first time it said I was preapproved for a cash rewards card so I applied and instantly got approved for $18K Signature Cash Rewards card.
I was planning on a secured cc because I have some baddies including an old cc charge-off. FICO is 659. NFCU still gave me a chance. Now to see if I get approved for auto refinancing
