Re: Navy Federal Credit card

Anyone with an account can refer you. They dont necessarly have to be in the navy, army etc. So for example, if you have a friend who was referred by their army dad, that friend can then refer you because they are a member

Re: Navy Federal Credit card

Please be careful if you are thinking of joining NFCU, they may not be as strict as say USAA, but they do have certain requirements that you must meet. If you try and skirt those requirements and down the road you can't prove proper eligibility,  they will close your accounts as stated earlier in this thread. Monkeylover01 is incorrect,  not anyone with an account can refer you. If they are only friends,  you must also be living in the same household. And personally I would rather be one of the relations listed on the website to be safe. I am a member through my DW who's father is retired Army. If you really want to be sure of eligibility,  NFCUs website has an excellent eligibility wizard to check out. But NFCU is truly a great CU if you can get in.

Re: Navy Federal Credit card

I did, in fact, get my information from the source. I spoke to a represenative and she said once youre a member you can refer your family members. Im sure it would never get to the point where they woukd ask for a blood test.

Re: Navy Federal Credit card

I guess family can refer family without being in the same household. Whereas referring friends require same residence. I have not contacted the CU to confirm. Probably should before I ask my mother to open an account.

There is one downside for all their CC's: you cannot set up an autopay with an external checking account.

But you can make one time payments with external accounts right?

Yes, you can. But it is too much work. You can set up autopay with NFCU checking though.
