Navy... Can you talk to decision makers?

I was told I had to wait for letter before it could be discussed, now that I have the letter, I'm being told that's all you get.  Then I asked for my credit score because last time they sent it to me and this lady told me they don't do that... Well clearly you did before!!

I'm so frustrated with going round and round with people who don't have any power to do stuff but they sure do have their 2 cents to add in!

What exactly did you ask for and what did they say ?

Re: Navy... Can you talk to decision makers?

I asked for an unsecured CC.

they said:

1. sufficient credit with other people

2. passed performance with other creditors (I guess that would be my bk from 2007)

 

I had just paid off a junk of debt, that's why I tried applying again.... I'll just wait a couple more months, think I will be wiping out over 50% of my current balances, then I will try again.

Yes. Wait 3 months and ask again. Navy seems to be very liberal. Last week I asked for cli of 10k each on 2 of my cards. They approved 5k cli on each card.

Do you have deposit accounts (checking & savings) with NFCU? If so, are you making regular deposits?

I do have accounts but I am currently not putting any money in it because it has daily limits for other banks doing transfer into it... I would have to do like 3 transfers before I could pay any of my bills... and it's all set up automatically at other banks! im tempted though

Re: Navy... Can you talk to decision makers?

"working" accounts are very important to NFCU. Used to be not so much, but things change.

 

I would even consider changing your DD to NFCU. Otherwise they really may not work with you even in 3 or 6 months.

Your credit score is an aspect of your credit profile. Important? yes but just an aspect. Contributing/supplemental information determines the finer point of the deal. Ask any question, respect me not to get mad if the answer is not the affirmation you are looking for,

Re: Navy... Can you talk to decision makers?

Not sure using the accounts makes any difference. I have $5 in my savings and $25 in my checking and I hardly use them at all. They approved $10K navcheck / 22k MC / 5 K nrewareds visa / 5k Plat Visa, I had been a member only since the usaa - nfcu merger.
