NFCU Referral Promo... Your Experience?

Re: NFCU Referral Promo... Your Experience?

@UncleB,

I'm fortunate enough to live in Beaufort County, SC where there are multiple Navy federal locations (all on bases) but plenty of ATM's at various strip malls around town. That being said it's nothing for us to go on base since there's so many close but here's my logic. I am the root of the membership family for us being former service. Originally a few years back got my parents and sister in. When my wife and I got married I went into a branch with her and got her squared away no problem. With this latest membership drive, I brought myself (the original member), my wife (connection to her parents who wanted to join) and the new applicants (in-laws). Took about one hour in branch and they walked out with debit cards in hand. Found out my father in-law's brother and wife want to join, so looks like we'll be making another $100! If possible in branch and with the entire family tree (yes I know it sounds obnoxious)... but it worked and no verification issues LOL

That's not it in our case. I signed up under non military friend. I'm not military,. My husband signed up under me but was military. He's the only one with verification issues.

It does appear that for some people there is no rhyme or reason to why they get saddled with verification.  Smiley Frustrated

 

I'm actually surprised you didn't have to go through verification with your own membership.  You mention that your sponsor was a friend... I'm assuming you qualified as a household member?

 

It's actually interesting that your husband had to go though verification if he was active military... he would have qualified on his own without a sponsor anyway, so making him provide documents seems pointless.

I referred my sister a little over a week ago and we both received our bonus deposits yesterday.  Note - I joined through the Navy League and everything went smoothly with no complaints.

It's been 14 business days since I signed up online and we haven't received the $50 promo. I called about it and was informed that when signing up online, it didn't fill in the promo code so she had to manually do that for me and my family that signed up under me. Our 14 days starts today. I had even chatted with an agent when i was signing up and was told no code was needed.

Re: NFCU Referral Promo... Your Experience?

OK UncleB, called back in today , the rep helping me could not even see the accts I was talking about so he had me on hold a long time , coming back and forth between me and membership dept . I had a bad feeling it was gonna end up bad news or some crazy stuff I would have to go thru to get my kids accts opened.
Anyways after about 30 to 45 mins of hold time he comes back and says OK they are all open and ready to go , he had me log in to make sure they were in my acct online , they were there already but they had my son's middle initial wrong so he kindly fixed that for me and answered a few more things about how long the referral credit would take . He said it would be 7 to 10 business days . So there it is I'll update when we get the bonus .
