Re: beaver/duck cards..

Just one post of many why the hype is gone.

Re: beaver/duck cards..

In short:  Nobody talks about the cards because the folks at OCCU are a bunch of liars.  After they overextended themselves they started closing accounts and made up a lie about the accounts being compromised.

I Still have the Beaver card (i was luckySmiley Surprised),  It will reach the 1 year mark  this October. 

I will get brave and finally ask for a credit limit increase on this card in October.

I was wondering why I kept seeing those cards on signatures I'm a fan of their football team but I didn't expect to see their logo on a card in random signatures lol

Re: beaver/duck cards..

I think they changed their policy in Jan. You need to join OCCU to be eligible for the card. Most of us don't qualify. We don't live in their areas. I still have my Ducks card. I used it yesterday. A few people still have their cards.
There is nothing special about the card except high limit.

Yep, they went through, and failed an audit....
The high limit is nice, Ron....don't forget it makes a decent 2% gas and grocery card to fall back on when the rotating catagory cards are out of sync.

Re: beaver/duck cards..

I still have mine, I totally slept the fiasco of OCCU closing account here.... I finished paying off my 6K BT last May, and now the card does nothing for me but keep my UTL suppressed.
