USAA or NFCU??

Ive been spamming the boards with all these Credit Union questions and I'm down to my last question. I hope! Lets make an honest choice here, PenFed or NFCU? (if i can get in NFCU)

 

I am in the rebuilding process and looking for a solid bank to do all of my transactions. Mortgage, car loan, checking/savings, CC and other

 

Thanks Fico! Hopefully these post will allow everyone to know about each one!

Re: USAA or NFCU??

If you have excellent credit, PenFed is the way to go. They tend to use the same hard pull for account opening and all your products, and give great rates on loans. For almost any credit scale and assuming you're qualified, NFCU is good for credit lines. However, they are extremely pull happy and will pull for virtually everything!

Personally, i would go with PenFed. To me, NFCU has too many hoops to jump through XD

If you can qualify for mship in NFCU, it's definitely your better option, they are more lenient on approvals. Banking-wise, only full members can do iPhone deposits with usaa. Everyone can do iPhone deposits with NFCU. Rewards-wise and Interest rate-wise, NFCU is better with their CCs than usaa - even with usaa full members. Look at their website and compare the rewards of their CCs vs nfcu's. usaa charges ltd members higher interest rate and less rewards than their full members, and both aren't as good as NFCU.

Well, frankly if I could, I would do both, if I had to choose one, I'd definitely choose NFCU. But if you can do both, its worth it. Usaa has good ins for full members, from what I have heard. id definitely get your grandfather to join.

I bank with both. I have the following with them....

 

NFCU

-CC

-NavCheck (line of credit)

 

USAA

-main checking

-main savings

-3 CC (all points are linked which is great)

-personal loan

-auto loan

-renters insurance

-auto insurance

-VPP insurance (for my wifes wedding ring)

 

bottom line both banks are great, I like USAA a tad better because it offers more products and their website is top-notch in the banking industry period. Both offer top notch customer service and open 24hrs, so you cant go wrong. With USAA you can also link all of your other accounts with other financial institutions. Example, i have my NFCU products and Discover card all under my USAA login, so i can see my complete financial portfolio.

Wallet: NFCU CashRewards 35k-- USAA AMEX 28k-- USAA World MC 22k-- Discover IT 17.5k--Chase Freedom 23.5k-- NFCU NavCheck 15k
