OMG..STUNNED

I applied for NFCU cashrewards in September.. Initially denied but I sent recon along with paystubs and got approved for $2000. After reading all of the CLI success I decided to hit the luv button and I got $5000 early this month. So today I thought about doing the balance transfer at 0% so I decided to ask for another CLI to $10000...got the 3-5 business day notice... just checked my account to pay my bill and my new limit IS 10K.. I am stunned and happy it is my highest limit. Now I can do the balance transfer and have enough of a cushion to still use my card to keep me under 50% utilization. THIS IS THE BEST CREDIT UNION EVER!!

Total Overall Credit Limit- $325k

Congrats! That's terrific. Great CL! So, you were just at 5 months. They keep telling me to wait for 6 mos., but I'm getting antsy!

 

Do you know yet if you got any HPs? They told me that if you ask for a CLI *before* 6 mos., it's a HP, but *after* 6 mos., it's a SP. Somehow, I doubt the accuracy of this info, tho!

 

I wonder if they're doing more CLIs this month with their BT promo going on? Smiley Indifferent

Very cool! You'll probably get a FICO boost if you have less CCs reporting a balance. Smiley Tongue

Mellon:

 

Congratulations and thanks for posting.  Your post made me decide to head over to NFCU and see if I could get some Navy lovin.  MasterCard Platinum bumped from $15K to $25K immediately.

HUGE CONGRATS MELLON! 

 

NFCU can sure make it easy to like them at times, as well as rave about them LOL

 

 

Off topic question. I remember seeing your name "Mellon" on here long ago.  I was just wondering, being you joined in 2007, did you use that name because of Mellon Bank?  Just curious, I know there has to be newer people on here that probably haven't heard of Mellon Bank.  I had them many years ago, wondered if you did at some point too.
