Re: An Emphatic NOOOO from usaa card....

USAA can be very conservative.

 

I'm a full member with BK discharged 11/2009 (no loss to USAA).  After two years oerfect performance on their secured card I was declined for unsecured last September.

 

I like USAA and continue to do some business there (banking and insurance) but there are better places to go for credit after BK.

I'm a full member and I think you can do better than USAA for everything (with the exception of brokerage account, which is awesome). Their insurance is too high (saved 250 by switching to Geico), and their credit card rewards are pretty sucky. Secured Cards don't graduate, they give low limits unless your credit is in the mid 750s. I had three open CC accounts with them, 2yrs Never late. Renters and auto insurance, as well as an IRA and checking/savings account. It took them 2yrs and 2 HPs to give me a $500 CLI to 1500.  MY NFCU card on the other hand started me out at 25k. I opened two Chases cards less than a month a part and had a 5k limit on both. While tthe customer service is great I think in the future they will run a ton of customers off with their policies.

Re: An Emphatic NOOOO from usaa card....

There is NFCU if you are eligible.  For CC they are much more likely to approve than USAA. 

 

I have insurance through USAA and they are the lowest for me.  GEICO was several hundred more.

YMMV so in your case it isn't true.

 

IMO, I think NFCU is easier to get credit with.

IMO, NFCU hands out credit like that kid in all of our DARE movies in elementary school tried to hand out freebies of dope.

Starting my rebuild!

I think you are the exception more than the rule. Looking at the various Sigs on this site it's rare to find an NFCU card with a lower CL than a USAA card (If the APps were semi close together) and as for CLI's it's not even close.
