Re: Thank you Navy FCU!

Do you have to be in the military to join up?

Re: Thank you Navy FCU!

No doc....if a direct family is already a member, it's super easy. If a family member is former military, them joining first is best and easiest for you.

Re: Thank you Navy FCU!

I currently have 2 family members serving in the Air Force and 2 uncles retired from the Army. This might be my cue to join up

Re: Thank you Navy FCU!

Congrats... I applied with them a couple months ago and was denied.  My credit scores have since improved and I am considering trying again, especially after your success story.

Thanks to all for the congrats. Any advice anyone????


Use your card regularly and PIF every month. After 6 months give them a call for a CLI.

Re: Thank you Navy FCU!

 Would you suggest PIF before statement cuts or by the due date on the bill?

Use the card - sparingly. Make sure you keep the reporting balance at <$50. In 6 months, you'll get a nice big, fat increase.

Re: Thank you Navy FCU!

I took a chance and sent a message to Navy FCU to request a CL increase on my new n-rewards visa and I just received this message:

 

Navy Federal Response 10/11/2012 : Thank you for your message. We are pleased to inform you that we have approved your increase to $2,000.00. If we can be of any further assistance, please let us know.

 

I am screaming on the inside and wish i could do a back flip right now! I love this forum and NavyFCU!!! :-)
