PENFED Question?

When you set up an account with them can you use your credit card to fund your account or do you have to use ACH through checking etc. And is it a cash advance if using a credit card or do they count it as a purchase. Thanks in advance everyone.

Re: PENFED Question?

You can use credit card.  They warn you that some credit cards may treat it as a cash advance.  Mine did not.  I don't remember which card I used but it was reported as a purchase. But there is no guarantee.
