My wife used to bank with them because she lived in San Antonio and they are head quartered there. We financed our first car (as newly weds) with them and we kept the insurance products, but eventually went with local banks to DFW (BofA because they kept buying up the banks we were with )
But, back then online banking didn't exist, so I may rethink that....I do most of my finances online now....it's so convenient

I used to work in the consumer loan dept. The only pull EQ.
They actually offer a scorewatch type product to their members.
Log on to your accounts and type "scorewatch" in the search box.
I'm sorry about the bad insurance experience.
I'm going to go back to work for them in June in the credit card dept. I will guve ya'll the inside scoop when I can.

hey, we got an insider at USAA!
scottie_mommy, appreciate the info.
Seems like all the CU / membership orgs like EQ. Alliant and PenFed both pull EQ exclusively also.
scottie - what was the criteria for loans with USAA? Were there definite Do's and Don'ts that you could share?
Also, how bad of a grudge do they hold for those who had a baddie experience with their CC 10 years ago and settled for less than owed?
