Usually the advertising campaigns don't begin until the card is available for applications.  PenFed didn't start advertising its Power Cash Rewards Visa until it became available last February.  Now it's the most advertised card in America.  Similarly, it is widely known that Bank of America will be releasing it's new "premium" travel rewards card in September, but there has been no advertising yet, only leaked information.  I was even surprised that NFCU and Amex issued a press release about the card in May.


No doubt.  I was only pointing out that in all cases the promotional materials have already been printed for any major campaign, which means the specifics have been determined long before any advertising campaign is kicked off.  The point you make is true - we "nobodies" do not see all of those specifics until such time those are released :-)

There's no need to debate this; technically everybody is "correct" since it can be YMMV.

 

When I got my credit card with NFCU back in 2015 the HP was on EQ, although recently new cards (and CLIs) are usually TU.  That said, if there's any issue pulling TU they are able to pull EQ and even EX (yep... EX has been reported more than once now). 

 

The CLOC is generally EQ;  I don't recall reading where another bureau was pulled but that doesn't mean it can't/won't happen. 

 

The only thing I'm truly comfortable with using 'always' - at least for now - is the TU HP for membership; so far I don't recall seeing any confirmed exceptions to this (if I've overlooked one somebody please let me know).  That's not to say it won't change tomorrow or next week (or next month) - NFCU doesn't exactly drop us a line when they make process or policy changes (how nice that would be!).

I'm establishing a good history with Navy and it probably wouldn't be a big deal, but I still want my scores as high as possible when I apply for anything.

 

At this stage of a rebuild, even moderate balances reporting can hit my score 15 points.
