Re: USAA Secured Credit Card

Joeydtx- that is correct. The banking is open to anyone. The other services are for members with military affiliations.

Re: USAA Secured Credit Card

They replied, and are sending out applications for both my husband and myself.  Yay!  I am so happy that they have this new card, it is going to be a major help, esp since it unsecures after a year.

Re: USAA Secured Credit Card

Rats, well I emailed them before I saw this so now I know.  Wish my uncles were with USAA ><  3 are retired Marines and one is just recently retired National Guard.  Getting to do business with our honored soldiers though is awesome though!

Re: USAA Secured Credit Card

They review after a year, since this is a new program I am not sure that it will be easy but in a year, we should have great scores so it should not matter.

Re: USAA Secured Credit Card

joey, i suggest giving them a call and seeing if there is anything you can do.  you never know, they may grant membership based on something you just don't know about yet. 

 

also, you should recommend usaa to them.  they do not have to get any of the products.  just become members.  then you can see if you can get membership that way.  good luck!!!  it really is an amazing group to be affiliated with.

Re: USAA Secured Credit Card

No, newstart 2010, I worked for USAA and you have to either be military past or present or be the dependent. They do not allow mothers,fathers, aunts, uncles etc membership. Only military, spouses, children.....

Sorry.

Anyone can use the banking part though. (may be restricted to those who live in bexar county)

Re: USAA Secured Credit Card

it may be all of the above. Im not affiliated with anyone in the military. I just have a regular account. I wonder if any of the other members who got apps for the secured cards have affiliated military accounts with USAA
