Received PenFed Visa in 1 week

I had heard many people say it had taken 3-4 weeks to get their Visa from PenFed.  Maybe they are improving their processes, I received mine 1 week from approval and 10 days from app.

Do you think you could start a Penfed version of your Alliant FICO Results thread? I found it really helpful for gauging my readiness to apply.

Re: Received PenFed Visa in 1 week

Nice. They actually took a week just to ask for employment/financial verification from me. That was on Friday when I got home from work. Faxed it yesterday. If I get approved I think I too will be one of those waiting for a few weeks.

Re: Received PenFed Visa in 1 week

I took almost a week to complete the app results, but then my card came in about a week after approval....I wonder what the differences are.

 

I started a PenFed App Results and FICO Survey thread here:

Please share your results, approval or decline.  Good luck! :smileyhappy:
