Re: PenFed 17500.00 approval??????????

For those who were approved, what were you credit profiles? I'm interested in getting a couple more cards in April, just trying to get my ducks in a row. Also, what report do they pull? for the last 24 months, I have like 8 inq on my EX report, 2 on my EQ report, and 1 on my TU. So I'm hoping that they pull EQ or TU

BCE: $0/$11,200, CSP: $0/$6500, Chase Priority Club: $0/$3500, Freedom: $0/$6000, Barclays NFL: $0/$7000 Discover: $0/$12,500, Citi Dividend: $0/$3500

EQ FICO - 728
TU FICO - 734
EX FICO(AMEX) - 712

Given your sig, I'd say you are better poised now than where you were six months ago.  I just was approved for $28k (card way the way) and they pulled EQ so you should be ok there.  My EQ score was 754 and EQ Fico was 732.  I had only two credit cards (not counting Amex Platinum) before with CLs of $20k and $25k but my utilization was higher than yours...65%.  They required proof and income and that was it.

Re: PenFed 17500.00 approval??????????

After reading this post, I have a few questions about Penfed and would like some advice.

 

I read that Penfed does not allow new members to apply for credit within 6 months of joining... is this true?  I'm considering joining and would like to apply for both their Amex travel rewards and the Platinum Visa Rewards, but am not sure if the time is right.  I have recently (this week) got 2 new cards (so 2 new HPs) Amex BCP 7,800 and Discover 7,000.  After these HPs, this leaves me with a fico of approx. 709, and a combined credit limit of roughly 20k (USAA Mastercard 1000, Zales 4000, Kohls 800, Amex BCP 7,800, Discover it 7,000).  I am currently carrying a balance of approx. $1500.

 

For any of you Penfed Gurus out there, my concern is this.. with the majority of my credit being new, and having 2 recent HPs, my score being a 709, should I go ahead and continue my credit shopping spree and apply for Penfed membership and one of their cards?  Or should I conserve my resources and make the attempt in about 6 months, to let my recent HPs clear and give me time to bolster my score with my new CLs?

 

Thanks.
