PENFED APPROVAL $20,000
HI
 
having read several good post about penfed gas card, i went ahead and called them for info. I proceeded with opening a membership and was charged $25 and applied for the visa cars which was approved instantly for 20K. i hope they don't call me to change their minds. has this happen to anyone? i should get membership info next week and credit card the following week.
 
the csr only used my wife's income and not household. I am keeping my fingers crosses
 
EQ 738 
 
thanks for all your help and support

Major Congrats!  I am assuming it is a shared account with both of you getting Visa's.  What is your highest CL on your other CCs?  Wondering if that is why they went so high.

do they ever ask you for pay stubs if it goes to a loan officer for review

Penfed max CL is 40k, read somewhere it was upped to 50k so his request will probably be denied of being 5k over limit

I applied for 25000 dollar limit and they gave 250. I guess they forgot to add 2 more zeros :smileyhappy:

LOL I was kidding. I applied over 8 months ago and I was denied because of too many
 
new open accounts. I am trying to apply again but I am scared :smileyhappy:
