Re: US Bank CC or DCU CC

I would apply for DCU because they're generous for CC's CL. I also like their EQ FICO.

Hmmmm, both!!

 

You know I just got these cards/accounts.  US Bank is my primary bank.  Got a $10K Visa and 2 wks later, got a $15K Premier LOC.  I really like how that LOC is setup.

It's like I have a separate checking account with $15K sitting in it to be used at my discretion.  I'll be getting checks for the LOC account, along with another VISA card....that's my understanding anyway.

I can transfer money from the LOC to my primary checking account if I ever had to.  That's a nice feature.  Interest is low...9.25% for me.

 

DCU, $10k as well. 8.5%.  They also said I qualified for a $25K auto loan another $5k card if I wanted it.  I passed.

2 HP's, I wasn't too fond of that.  I haven't used the card yet.

 

I'm partial to US Bank.  They're close to me and open late on Saturdays and open on Sundays.

 

They both pulled EQ, Ohio.

Re: US Bank CC or DCU CC

I like the free FICO from DCU, but dislike the CSR from stories I read on here

 

I like US Bank because of the CC products and LOC, but think they might very conserative and deny me

 

So I torn! But I promise not to app :smileytongue:

Re: US Bank CC or DCU CC

I may have been denied or given a much lower CL if they had pulled TU or EX.  I've been focuing on EQ friendly lenders.  :smileyhappy:

US Bank denied me about 9 mos ago.  But I've gained at least 100 pts on EQ since then.  Don't know what they pulled then.

They pulled EQ so I may have a chance since my EQ and TU seem to be higher in scores. 

 

Decision, decisions :smileyvery-happy:

Re: US Bank CC or DCU CC

I talk to my financial institutions staff so rarely I don't even consider it a significant factor.

If you need a CU relationship, DCU is a good one to have. That's especially true of the auto lending right now.

If you're looking for anything beyond a farming tradeline for a card, US Bank is probably a better choice if you want a good CC in the future. DCU just isn't competitive on that front.
Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 700, TU 04 731, EX 98 725 (05/24/15)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/16)

Re: US Bank CC or DCU CC

Thanks Rev and Bears!

 

I am really not looking to build a relationship with another CU since I acquired PenFed and I am part of a local CU here in my home state. I am good with CUs.

 

I may go with US Bank because I rather have my credit pulled twice for two credit products instead of one CC and for membership.

 

US Bank does seem that they know what they are doing
