Oh boy!

Walked into my credit uunion today to deposit money and recognized they've rolled out a set of brand new credit cards. Get this it had a fixed APR of 8.9% for all three cards it offered. Waiting in line was horrendous since I promised myself that the NFL visa would be my last credit card for 2013. Since I will apply for an auto loan come fall through my CU maybe theyll offer me the CC on the initial HP. Woosah Woosah I must be patient...good things shall come to those who wait! Have you folks ever heard of a fixed rate CC at 8.9

Re: Oh boy!

Navy has 8. something.... We have 9.65% on our Cash Sigi.

But yes, My optima through my father use to have 6.4% FIXED! (might have actually been under 6%) wish still had that!

 

So why are you not applying for it? will help towards auto approval later!

Re: Oh boy!

I didnt know my CU had that (out of the loop). And I just applied for the nfl visa and was wary of barclays dislike of inquiries so I'm going to wait till Oct/Nov.

Re: Oh boy!

I know wish i wouldve known before applyinh. Ive had a loan with them before and my friend/banker said I should get approved but I need to let my current cards age. Anyhow if they do auto approve for it when I apply for the auto loan this fall I can use it for xmas gifts. Plus it offers rewards but we'll see.

Re: Oh boy!

One of my CC's from a local CU is fixed @ 6.75 for everything (cash advance, balance transfers, etc.). Does anyone have any or know of anything lower ?
