NFCU

I just opened a NCFU checking/savings account.   After reading so many great things about them, thought I should go ahead and take the plunge.  My question:  when should I apply for their credit card.  I haven't even received any paperwork or online access yet.  I did check my reports today and they SP'd EQ for the account opening 2 times.  Weird.  Everything I've read about them says that they should have HP'd me for the account opening.  All I've received so far is an email asking for ss# verification and a copy of my ID which I responded to today.  Thanks for your help.

Re: NCFU

With those scores, go for it. I just got approved today and my scores would have to be about 100 points lower than yours. I stopped using my checking account with them in Jan and they charged off a negative balance. I had no idea it was and I figured I'd get a letter that I got an OD but never did so thought it was fine.

Anyway you'll get it.

Re: NCFU

Thanks!  Really?  I don't even know my account number yet.  I will hit them up in the morning then.  Smiley Happy. Which card do you recommend?  Is the Flagship worth the AF?  I've been looking for a no foreign exchange fee card to use overseas.

Re: NCFU

If you travel, I've heard good things about the flagship. Otherwise, Cashrewards is really popular.
