Wow, that is cool. I have wanted to be able to do it since I opened the accounts. Unfortunately, these are their requirements:

You must have a USAA checking or savingsaccount and:

Have an active USAA property and casualty insurance policy and be qualified for a USAA loan or credit card (not a USAA Secured Card).

OR

Be eligible for USAA property and casualty insurance and have an active USAA loan or credit card (not a USAA Secured Card).

 

And all I had were the auto insurance and checking account. So I could not do it until I got qualified for a cc, personal loan, or life insurance. The HP at the beginning of your membership may have qualified you for a cc, personal loan, or life insurance -- my credit, I guess, took some work first.

Re: USAA Card approval criteria?

Sorry for the confusion. I am actually being serious. Don't really know what makes you a full member. I thought I was but theres a lot of threads here that got me somewhat confused. If someone can enlighten me I would greatly appreciate it. Just got approved for NFCU Visa Signature Flagship Rewards with a my current FICO scores. Would like to have an idea of my chances of approval with thOse scores, if I am truly a USAA full member. Thanks In advance.

Bleck missed this message.

 

Weird.  I guess my secured CD loan is what got it for me along with having a checking account there?  My auto insurance is likewise through there; however, USAA doesn't do a HP to open the account.  

 

I did get a HP for my loan of course, and I have once seen a pre-approval offer (for all of 3 days, ah well) for one of their entry CC's, but that's it.

Re: USAA Card approval criteria?

USAA has been great for me!

 

They automatically review accounts every 6 months and decide on a CLI, or not.

 

Honestly, I think they're a little more conservative with CLIs than a lot of people here would be comfortable with. It doesn't seem to be simply a matter of perfectly managing ones credit or keeping a clean record. My guess is they have general guidelines on how much credit people should have based upon their income and DTI.

 

I've had two cards stuck at $5K/$3K for about a year with no CLI.

 

Customer initiated requests are HPs.

Well well! To my surprise I just got approved for a VFW USAA Amex Rewards CC $4k CL with a 668 EQ. And this week keeps on getting weirder. Guess that makes me a full member now right? LOL. Well off to the garden now. Actually after I get results from Walmart, cause apparently they have to send me letter in 7-10 days. That would definitely end things with a bitter taste after being approved for a NFCU Visa Siggy $5k CL, NFCU NavChek $2.5k CL and a USAA VFW Amex Rewards $4k CL. Next card AMEX charge card probably around Nov, Dec time or Jan. 2014

Re: USAA Card approval criteria?

I just have a couple questions.

 

1:  Where can you find out if your a full member or partial member does it say it somewhere when you sign into your USAA account?

 

2: Where can you find where the section is on auto CLI?

 

From what I have been reading I would be considered a partial member my father was is ex military.  It seems from what everyone is writing what you might not get a great credit limit but I recently got approved for a their American Express card with a 12k limit.  So from that could I assume that I might be a full member?

 

Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

I have a few questions about a USAA card application: 

 

1) What credit report does USAA mostly pull? 

2) What are the odds I get approved with about 1 year + 3 months total history and AAoA ~11 months? 

3) Are they inquiry sensitive?

 

So a bit short on history but clean record (no lates, derogs, etc). 


1) They pulls EQ

2)  Not sure.

3) Yes.

They are also credit utilization sensitive.  under 5% is good. Are you a full member or partial?
