Penfed

Is it worth joining Penfed? I have a CC with Navy Fed; however, I keep seeing many posts about Penfed.

 

I am eligible and I'm wanting to know is it really worth it? I see the CCs seems to be really popular?

 

Need some advice on this.

PenFed has some awesome rewards credit cards.  Virtually impossible to get if your credit is not in tip top shape.

Re: Penfed

I agree, PenFed does have some awesome cards. As long as you numbers are in good shape, you should be able to "get in" with them.

 

They are conservative but if you read through some of the posts about them, they are very generous once you have a track record.

Re: Penfed

Penfed Platinum Visa is one of the single best cash back cards out there (I would like to say it is the best gas card out there).

 

Their AMEX is one of the best travel rewards cards out there.

 

Yes, it is worth it.

Another good rewards card that might compare to PenFeds Cash Back Visa for gas is the Fort Knox Federal Credit Union Platinum Visa (12.25% apr).  It gives 5% back on gas too all the time.  I have it and love it.  Got it a few months back.
