If you're looking for a low rate emergency type card, their plain jane Mastercard is great. If you're looking for cash back, their Cash Rewards card is good also. It gives you 1% back on annual spending up to $10,000, and 1.5% thereafter.
NFCU is pretty lenient. Scores in the 650s should do it, but I think 660 or higher is optimal.

I just applied for their cashRewards Visa and the Platinum MC this week, and was approved for both. My EQ is also about 650-ish. They gave me $7,500 on the Visa, and $6,000 on the MC. And I only had the savings/checking account open for one day when I applied for the cc's.
