PenFed uses one credit pull for all credit products. But PenFed could be bipolar because they could deny someone with a high FICO and "too many inquiries" while approving someone with a lower FICO. But I was approved for a personal LOC and CC with them this year with a FICO about 720-730.

 

Good luck and keep us posted if you decide to apply!

In other words they hate Egyptians. PenFed knows that some of us play the credit game and they want no part of it. They recently shot me down for an auto loan and a CLI with the same "pyramiding debt" excuse despite my EQ Fico been 761 at the time of application and less than 1% util showing. I opened 9 accounts over the last year so I know that's what their beef is. :catlol:
