NFCU nRewards - APPROVAL!!

I am SO excited, I just started repairing my credit less than 1 month ago and by getting some negative items deleted I was able to raise my score from 584 to 671 in just a few short weeks!  I am a member of NFCU and decided "what the heck!"  I'll just try applying to see if I can get an unsecured cc.  **I have NO open lines of credit, my most recent cc was closed in early 2009 and the highest limit I've ever had was $3,500**  and

 

I WAS APPROVED FOR $7,500!!!!!!!!!!   :smileyvery-happy:

 

I was planning on getting a secured card with a $300 limit, LOL!

 

I couldn't be happier, 700 club here I come!!!

 

Thank you Fico forums!!

Re: NFCU nRewards - APPROVAL!!

Congrats!  I too just started repairing my credit and also just joined NFCU about 2 weeks ago.  I applied for the nRewards Visa and was approved for $3500.  This is the highest limit I've ever had so I'm treating this card like it's a piece of gold.  Hopefully after a little work and good history, I can get a CLI in about 6 months.  Loving NFCU right now!

Re: NFCU nRewards - APPROVAL!!

Congratulations to both of you.     Jen0583   and    nene17

Don't forget to keep up with your rewards pts expiration date ...  4 yrs!   if you don't use it, you will loose it.   So, plan well how you use your nRewards.

Congrats, Jen - feels good, eh?

 

But, don't stop there - apply for their Flagship VISA AND a NAVCHECK LOC. They might even use the same EQ pull.

 

It's all good with NFCU. Keep your acount in good standing - they are very good with CLI's.

Re: NFCU nRewards - APPROVAL!!

Cobra - Do you think I should apply for more?  I was very tempted to but I didn't want to rack up the inquiries or push my luck.   I am hoping to apply for a mortgage, probably through NFCU as well, in about 6 months.   I really have no use for credit (other than FICO scoring).  I will probably just charge $100 or less per month and pay it off immediately.   I'm just so used to never having credit so I've learned to cash flow everything, but I understand to play the FICO game you have to have lines of credit and I get that.

Re: NFCU nRewards - APPROVAL!!

Wow, thats impressive!  Congrats.  I'm near 650s and should see a slight jump soon.  I'm starting to question if i should join a Credit Union.

 

Do you use the CU for any major accounts?  Or just a small savings?

Re: NFCU nRewards - APPROVAL!!

Thanks!

 

Brandon - I've had my regular checking account and savings account there since 2005.  I also had a car loan from 2006 that was recently paid off.   This is the first time I've applied for any of their credit products.   Hopefully soon I can get my mortgage through them as well.  Good luck to you!
