PENFED APPROVAL $20,000

HI
 
having read several good post about penfed gas card, i went ahead and called them for info. I proceeded with opening a membership and was charged $25 and applied for the visa cars which was approved instantly for 20K. i hope they don't call me to change their minds. has this happen to anyone? i should get membership info next week and credit card the following week.
 
the csr only used my wife's income and not household. I am keeping my fingers crosses

Major Congrats!  I am assuming it is a shared account with both of you getting Visa's.  What is your highest CL on your other CCs?  Wondering if that is why they went so high.

Penfed max CL is 40k, read somewhere it was upped to 50k so his request will probably be denied of being 5k over limit

LOL I was kidding. I applied over 8 months ago and I was denied because of too many
 
new open accounts. I am trying to apply again but I am scared Smiley Happy
