any CU similar to nfcu?

Just wondering if there are other CU's I could build credit with as far as cc's go that are fairly easy to get approved for? As of today, eq is 608, TU is around 620, and EX around 600.

I don't know much about it but I have read a lot of very satisfied approvals from them on this forum.
