Which credit card will I get good chance of getting

My current scores are 676, bout 30% utilization. I have two inqueries in last 6 months. No 30 day for 3.5 years.

 

I dont have any high CL card and I would like to get rid of some of my lower CL cards like First Premier and Captial One. I have two capital one cards, starters.. applied for a real capital one card and got denied, too many cards with them.. they didnt hit my credit...Should I close one and reaplly? or should I wait till score is higher? better off trying for a Citi or Wells fargo with current score?

 

I just got a mortgage and paid off some CC debt. My FICO scores went up 26 pts in 30 days... Also, I need to do some work on my house and was looking to get a line of credit loan, Wells fargo or Citi for that?

If you know anybody in the service, you are prime for Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU). I had similar profile in 2008 and they granted me 2 cards at $15,000 a piece and a Line of Credit at $10K. Best move i've ever taken. If you cant get in NFCU, I would try any other credit union.

I have a nephew in the service, does that qualify me?

 

EDIT: I just checked and I dont qualify as an uncle.

 

 

Other than that, why a credit union over say like Citi, or Wells Fargo for line of credit?

I never used a Credit Union. Is there anything I have to have to qualify? I live in Texas.

me too.  you usually have to open up a checking & savings, or sometimes just a savings.  that's how you become a member, & then you can app for other products.

Are you a Citi or WF customer?  If so, I would try them.

I am not too sure but I think you can do this. Your nephew can join them and then you should be able to join them. I will ask your nephew to give them a call and find out.

+1

 

You should definitely be able to join if that happens. IMO, they're extremely nice to work with.
