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

Scores by lender CLI requests 4/15/14: EQ 760 / TU 755 / EX
Scores by lender 4/25/11: EQ 705 / EX 743 / TU 735
Mortgage closed 5/20/2011!

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.
