Re: NFCU Pre-Approval [Pulled the trigger]

Congrats on the approval. I guess you didn't want to wait one more month. Well, at least you got exactly what you anticipated... High apr and low limit. You really know your credit profile well. 😉

Low limit?!!!

I mean I understand people post instant $25k all the time, my partner currently has $35k but $14 looks like nearly double your current highest and even if it wasn't i usually don't put numbers above 10 in low category Smiley Tongue

The card has low rewards and no sign up bonus. Really, the only purpose of the card was to get a high limit. I was hoping for $20k+.

I forgot when the offer expired. I think it was at the start of May. I also thought I would forget about it and not app before the offer expired. Nothing good was going to post in the next couple weeks, so I just went ahead and apped. 

 

Yup, haha got the high APR and low limit I was counting on. I will build up my profile and get my AAoA up, then seek better terms on all of my accounts.

 

My AAoA has never went over the 1 year minimum :/

Oh come on!! I mean you got close 75% of what you wanted.  It's NFCU so you'll be there in the next couple of months.  Plus it looks like its your highest limit to date according to your siggy.  Cheer up cuz the wait is almost over!!!

 

I agree that the rewards at 1% are not that great and I have used it only for 0% BT and will work on getting the CL up to at least $20K by the end of the year.  BTW, I'm in the garden too but hopefully on sp's will get my goal CL.

I think that 14K is an outstanding limit... for anyone.  I know lots of people with NFCU that don't have a limit like that.  Be proud of that limit.  Super Congrats!!!
