Navy Fed is the best!!!

My son, just joined the Army (very proud of him). He also joined Navy Fed and that allowed me to join. :smileytongue:  I joined last Thursday. Today as I’m on the phone (they called me) with a very nice and helpful service agent setting up phone apps and paperless statements and such. She informed me that my App was approved… She then asked “if I knew the limit?” I did not…  Heck I did not even know I was approved till she told me. Then BAM she said “it is for a $10K sig cash reward card”.. YES a $10k card.. WOW:smileytongue::smileysurprised::smileyvery-happy:

 

Started checking Myfico 12/12..We had to move (landlord sold home) and a rental agent suggested it since we had filled BK 8/11. I was very surprised to see I was at 642!! We got a new home (rental) so all went well there..  After reading what seemed like 100’s and 100's of postings on how to rebuild. I took the plunge Jan-2013 and app for the first time in 4-5yrs (?)..  Well I got a Cap1 (1k), Creditone ($300), First Premier ($300) and lastly a Discover ($300). I believe most everyone can get these cards didn’t care it was a start..

 

Good buy FP and Creditone.. Possibly the Discover since it is with Continental Finance.. I will keep my Cap1 they were the first new card since hitting bottom.

 

Should I keep Discover so I have three lines?

 

FYI…

 

They (Navy Fed) can transfer money now over the phone for your initial start up deposit ..  Just started today and I was one the first, so I was told..

Re: Navy Fed is the best!!!

Not sure that is a good idea??? Score was 642 12/12- hit 654 and now shows 626.. To many Apps (7-9) and a car loan only 2 inquires from that Chase Auto kicked in at 3.5%.. Also they denied my Flagship request originally, that is how I got the sig rewards instead.. Thought I would get maybe a $1k card not the $10K they gave.. Need score to go back up soon i hope..

its over $200/year just to have the card and even if you don't use it you have to make a payment every month because they charge a maintenance fee of $10/month or something like that.  I just came out of bk myself, so I took a look at it and ran away screaming.
