Visa Siggy question

Is there a way for other lenders to know you have a Visa Signature via your credit profile? 

 

I just changed my NFCU nRewards to a Visa Signature Flagship Rewards and I wanted to know if it would help me get a CSP by making Chase jealous with the spend I'll be using on the Flagship rewards card. Also with the NPSL on NFCU how does the Credit line reflect on my profile? Will it hurt my utilization at all?

 

 

NFCU Flagship Rewards Visa Signature $5,000
NFCU NavCheck LOC $10,000
Chase INK Cash $5,000
Chase Freedom $1,500
Bank of America Cash reward 123 $5,000
Barclays Arrival World MC $3,000

Re: Visa Siggy question

I know siggys report as a "flexible spending account" since they are npsl.

Chase just likes someone to have given you close to, or a $5000 limit. They dont want to be the first ones to do it.

Re: Visa Siggy question

Just learned something new. So are all Visa Signature cards a NPSL cards or just the one issued by NFCU?

Re: Visa Siggy question

I am fairly certain all visa siggys are NPSL. 

 

Same with World (and higher (world elite)) mastercards.

[ Edited ]

I just did a CLI recon with Chase and while they were willing to meet my $5k CL with AMEX (Delta Gold) and BoA (Signature Visa) it wasn't enought for me. It wasn't until I told the Chase CSR that I could go over my $5k limit with my BoA Signature card that he was willing to go up to $6500. He did mention that he could see my BoA CL, but it didn't indicate that it was a Signature card. 

 

This is just my experience, so as disclaimers go... YMMV

Interesting so would the Chase Ink Cash be considered an NPSL? I ask because my card says World above the mastercard logo. If thats the case I never knew that was doable.

Re: Visa Siggy question

It's my understanding that while I have a SIgnature Visa from BoA and could go over my limit, they could at any time decline a purchase over that defined limit. With my AMEX PRG, I doubt I'd get declined until I hit their internal limit. In both cases, limits are exists (however cloaked AMEX's CL is), so be careful.

Re: Visa Siggy question

Like MontegoMack said,

Going over your limit is a case by case basis, some cards list how much you can go over (for instance, JPM select can do 2x its limit and JPM Palladium can do 3x its listed limit) and anything over your limit MUST be paid by the due date of that period.

It really varies by lender, but if you plan on making a large purchase i would just call up first and ask. One member was able to push a 20k purchase through a 5k cap1 card because he called and asked.

@JonMartin: it is my understanding ALL World and World Elite MCs are npsl.
