PENFED LOVE BUTTON

Has any one tried the love button on cli, and if so was it a hard pull? I see it on my logging page staring at me all the time. I was'nt seeing this before. Does every body see it too?

Re: PENFED LOVE BUTTON

I think it appears when they decide that they do indeed love you.

The last time this question came up (last winter, maybe?) I hit it, and they jumped me from $10K to $20.2K. This with an account only 9 or 10 months old, that started Feb 08 at $5K.

I think that I called up and had a CSR hold my hand as I hit the button, but then I'm famous for being a weenie. Smiley Happy

Nope. I suppose because they offered it. I clicked the button, and it said something like congrats, you're approved for a new CL, do you wish to accept?" (Sorry, I wish I could remember the exact terminology.)

If there isn't an offer there waiting, I would be a bit more cautious, though.

Re: PENFED LOVE BUTTON

Oh yea, I guess what I see is not an invitation per se; it is just one of the options available under my cc page. I tried to click it but, but the process looks more like an online cli request which will result in a hard inq. haulinghtescoreup, I think yours was a cli just sitting there and waiting for you to push the trigger. i was surprised because i never had that option before on the old web page; maybe its just part of the new web page design or upgrade.

I always thought the love buttons were treated as a soft, it would kind of suck if they hit hard. Hmm..makes you reconsider...at least for me.

Re: PENFED LOVE BUTTON

I tried to push the button, but it required me to check a box accepting a pull, which I presume is a hard because it didn't specify. i immediately canx the application until I get enough evidence that it is a soft. i am not taking any chances on my eq which is already pregnant with a lot of inqs. I hope some forum member will provide that evidence for me.
