  2. DCU- generous CL and refi products, shared branching, free EQ score
  3. Alliant- no fee CC and checking account, good banking rates

if you live in the right geographic area or work for the right groups (again a limited situation) but I love First Community which is based in the St Louis metro area for thier interest bearing checking superb customer service and low fees basic credit cards. And the most competitive and efficient mortgages my realtor has seen.

App'd: Barclay & Hhonors Surpass Aug 2014, PenFed & Freedom Feb 2013, Amex & Target Jul 2012, Discover Feb 2008 Gardening til ???
Goals: TBD, possibly a mortgage refi to a fixed rate or better adjustable

Penfed, unlike NFCU, doesn't require a military relationship, anyone can join with a 15-20 donation to one of two charities.  That said, at least one of their cards, Defender, is restricted to military.
