Re: Would you pay $75 bucks to join PSECU?

I took a double look at it, it says "ASSOCIATION MEMBERS"? Technically, wouldn't you be considered a "association member" if you paid the fee to become an official contributing member?

It's worth a try. I checked out some other ones and some are clearly employees only.

Re: Would you pay $75 bucks to join PSECU?

Trust me guys I checked the whole list, this is the second cheapest one compared the PRPS loophole and unless I overlooked anything probably the only one with a shot of getting out-of-state folks in there. All I know is PASEO doesnt mind if you join them from out of state, they actually have out of state members. It's only on the PSECU end I'm concerned and unsure about. If anyone out there takes a stab at it before I do, let me know the results.

Cap One Platinum MC $2.5k CL (08/12)
Citi Forward Student Visa Card $1.5k CL (09/12)

AMEX PRG NPSL (03/13), AMEX Gold Delta Skymiles 2k (03/13)
Walmart Credit Card $1.5k (03/13)

Its only a HP and $75, if you can spare the HP its worth the luv you'll get from that CU!!! Especially if your a prime credit customer!

I doubt they can do that as it takes a few days to confirm membership. I would say as soon as your confirmed get a loan rep on the phone and see if they can do it.
