It is possible that having a usaa checking account that you run large sums of money through for years (thus creating a real history) might be a positive factor in getting credit from them (though more likely to influence manual underwriting than the computer ). But just having a checking account won't make any difference. At least according to the rep I spoke with in February when applying for the mc.
DId you end up getting approved? Do you remember about what your credit score was at that time? Thank you by the way!

Starting Score: 6??
Current Score: Walmart TU 640-7/12, Experian 717-3/12
