Penfed holding my available credit more than 10 days

[ Edited ]
In October after making a payment, the payment reflected the next day as being available.  Last month after making payment on 11/25, the payment still not reflected in my available credit line.

DI, I am not a Penfed customer but on my CC Pages they show "PENDING PAYMENTS". Does Penfed have that option available and if so does it have your payment listed?

 

I know some have said that they hold payments on new customers for 10 days but this seems like an awful long time.

The payment itself posted on 11/25.  It's a fact that Penfed holds payment for 10 days.  But today marks day number 14.  I'm livid!

Certainly seems like a valid complaint. Have you tried calling CS for an explanation?

No. I figured it's not worth the time. I'll penalize them for that and not use the card for a month.

Hi DI…..I'm new to Penfed too but haven't kept track of when things were posted and when my CL changed. With a $20K CL the 10-day hold doesn't really effect me but I'll keep track this month.

Hi idmd

 

I was thinking of applying with Penfed but thinking my FICO score is not high enough today.  What kind of FICO range were you in when you applied.  I want to pull the trigger tonight or tomorrow especially when I see some of the CL folks have with them.

 

Thanks

770+ with a fairly high income……they did ask for pay stubs before granting my request for $20K.

DI...I've never had PenFed hold payments. The payments are posted promptly. Do you mean that they hold available credit for 10 days?
