Re: NFCU credit cards

Personally?  I would rank cards in this order:


1. no AF ( Why pay more to use their money than the interest rate if you don't PIF? )

2. fixed rate over variable 

3. CL

If you're going to whine about it, then you need to do something about it!
If you play the odds on CC's then the rules of Vegas will come into play and the House always wins and you don't own the House go under checking / reward checking

[ Edited ]

If you want/need to carry a balance, go with the Platinum Visa or MC


- 7.9% fixed rate (cash 9.9%)

- No fees

- BT & Convenience Check same rate as purchases


If you want reward, I like the cash reward


-  1% up to $10k annually, $1.5% after $10k annually

-  Real Time rewards (accumulate as purchases post)

-  Real time transfers to any account (savings, checking, cc, loans)

-  9.65% variable purchases (11.65% cash)

-  No fees

-  BT & Convenience checks same rate as purchases



NFCU is by far my favorite card overall.  I use it a lot and surpassed the $10k purchases first month.  I now make 1.5% cashreward on all purchases.  They don't charge and cash or BT fees.  Easy to use.  Fast post of payments.  Great CS.  Great CL.  Just love NFCU!

Re: NFCU credit cards

I went for the low fixed rate on the platinum visa.  Got $20k and 7.9% fixed.  This is my highest CL now.
