DId you end up getting approved? Do you remember about what your credit score was at that time? Thank you by the way!
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.
Starting Score: 6??
Current Score: Walmart TU 640-7/12, Experian 717-3/12
