I do not believe my scores are good enough for PenFed. Are there steps I can take to make securing a card more likely in the future? Opening an account first? Trying for a secured card first? How easy is a secured card to get from PenFed?
what's yourequifax score like?

How long to get to 720 do you think. Probably low end of approval for Penfed at 720. Establish account and have your banktransfer in month to account onregular basis. Might as well apply when you join as you will take inquiry for joining. Hopefully they start softing you every quarter and preapproved when score is high enough.

Have some good cards, then don't open up or apply for anything new for a year or more. Then, apply to Penfed, showing no new cards and no inquiries for a year. Call for recon if you get declined, seriously. PenFed dislikes new cards and inquiries, but they do want to see recent positive history.
