NFCU Membership? SP or HP ??

Re: NFCU Membership? SP or HP ??

Opting out won't affect a creditor's ability to HP your report ~ it only stops the CRAs from selling your info for promotional / marketing purposes.

Understandable.

 

 

My thinking is, if someone doesn't have an existing relationship with a creditor, in this case NFCU, and he/she is opted out, then a would be SP for membership only, would then have to be a HP -- since no existing relationship exists and no SP PP.

 

Otherwise, I still don't understand why I got HP'ed and others got SP'ed when we are only talking about membership.  I feel robbed =/ lol

Yeah, i don't believe there is a way for creditors to know if you're opted out or not ~ it's just something between you and the CRAs.

I'm pretty sure that almost everyone gets a HP ~ there may a few exceptions, but this happens with every credit union when you apply for membership. They always do a HP.

Hmm...lets try this route. My wife was already a member (she is not military) and I got membership through her . Maybe that's why it was a SP.

Re: NFCU Membership? SP or HP ??

I applied to Join NFCU on 11-22-2013.  I just pulled EQ and see a SP from NFCU on record for same date.  I have not checked other CRAs yet, but I also have not been accepted or app'ed for any products. 

 

I also have a FA on all 3 CRAs since Oct 30, 2013 for 90 days.  which may or may not help in this situation.  Will verify with EXP and TU shortly and update if i see any other pulls for applying for membership.
