****YOUR CREDIT CARD HAS BEEN APPROVED! THANK FOR CHOOSING NAVY FEDERAL, EXPECT YOUR CARD IN 7-10 DAYS.****
Scared to check the CL...I know I know
Thank you everyone for advising me to pull that trigger....
Is PSECU or NFCU inq sensitive...seeking to either do the PSL/Visa with PSECU or either the cash rewards with NFCU? I have a quite a few from lender pulls when I was seeking a second home. I currently have the Bank of America 123 (opened this month) 5K and their Platinum Plus (opened last month) 3K=273 balance, Orchard Bank $320=0 balance, JARED (AU), Sears (AU). I have 1 CO and 1 CA UNPAID (under dispute not mine), 2 paid CA. Last time anything neg was on my credit was 1.5 yrs ago. AAoA is 7 yrs and salary is 115K.
I would apply for a CHASE (thats who holds my current mortgage), Citi (paid CA is with Citifinancial from 2008), AMEX (app'd last month for the green card...denied...however that was before my major cleaning on credit report).....but Terrified of denials so I rather walk in with a STRONG possibility or DEFINITE.

i would say if you are trying to choose between the two and have access to both... Go with NFCU .. they seem to be more lenient than Psecu.

Did you app for both the same day or....? Do you have PSECU?

PSECU pulls EX and NFCU pulls EQ and TU, usually. If you're lucky enough to be a member of both, I would do a CC with NFCU and PSECU's combo visa/loc. Navy will pull separately for each credit product. Plus, their loc is 13.9% if memory serves. PSECU will do both visa/loc combo with one pull from what I read last year. That will help with your util.
I missed the PSECU cutoff by a day last year and they wouldn't let me in. You're lucky to have both!
It doesn't really matter whenyou app since they pull diff CRAs.
