USAA CC

 Opened my shiny new USAA  membership today.   Opened checking/savings with required $25 each.    website gave me a little trouble so I called ( rather they called me.....quickly)  They were AWESOME !  After getting my deposits set I was offered their CCs.  Wasnt sure but bit the bullet and was approved for $2k  How great is that.   I am on my way....... THANKS TO THIS FORUM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!   My TU fico is 644   ( not sure of others)   I had zero balance on Walmart and Target cards  and 3 years on my truck.

Re: USAA CC

Great job! I opened my membership last week and am looking forward to *hopefully* becoming friends with their credit card soon.

Re: USAA CC

What is your APR?  I got my card yesterday and am disappointed.  When I was approved, the CSR told me the APR was 11.something plus prime, which would be 15.something.  When the card arrived, the APR is 18.99%.

 

I guess it's just another sock drawer liner.

SRe: USAA CC

 Still have not recd my debit card for banking accounts and still havent recd my Mastercard.  My USAA account online now shows 16.99 %  APR for the MC.    I DONT CARE ABOUT THE APR because I am completely CC debt free now (0% util) and I am staying that way.  I will use the card for Saturday Starbucks only.    BTW,,, I love this forum.

Oops- I see now.  I opened mine the same day as you (for DH and I) and recieved both debit cards in the mail yesterday. It should be there soon. If not, you might check in with them if you don't get it soon.

Yep, 1/2% isn't a lot, but it's more than the 0% typical of debit cards. I sometimes use my debit card if I want cash back or something, and it's nice to know that I'm getting a rewards morsel in the process. (The cash back is only on the purchase, of course.)

 

I used to think that my USAA CC's were pretty weenie in the rewards department, but now that nearly everyone else has also dropped to 1%, I'm using them more and more.

They softed me once, just once, on Experian. But everything else, hard and soft, has been EQ.
