Re: usaa partial members not eligible for credit cards??

They did tell me last year I could not get a Secured Credit Card because I was not a full member, so were you asking about secured or unsecured card?

Re: usaa partial members not eligible for credit cards??

She is wrong.  Log into your account.  You should see some cards you can apply for.

Re: usaa partial members not eligible for credit cards??

so i called usaa again to get another rep, and this rep told me the same thing. i was not eligible for anything except checking/savings and discounts for some life insurance products. i mentioned this board, how there are some members who have no military affiliation and they were able to get a credit cards, and she said that was not possible. she said only full members or usaa employees were eligible. not making a big deal out of this, just weird that im reading different from what they are saying.

They are giving you incorrect info. As a partial member, you can apply for both the USAA platunum visa and mastercard. You just will not be eligible to receive the lowest rates available, full members get that perk.

From what I've read USAA is supposed to have good customer service, surprising that they would be handing out such misinformation. 

 

A partial member's screen will only show what you can apply for when you look at credit cards (i'm a partial member and I see this)

Whereas a full member gets all of these

Re: usaa partial members not eligible for credit cards??

Not sure why you didn't just apply online.

because no matter which card i click on, im taken to a screen that asks me to verify my eligibility, and while my dad is retired air force, he's not a usaa member, so it tells me i cant apply for any of them and to use a different family member. its okay, not the worse thing that can happen to me. :smileyhappy:
