Re: Pentagon Federal Credit Union Data Share

I noticed folks posting EQ Fico 8 scores here. I thought Penfed ran Eq Fico 9?

@FireMedic04  I put my EQ Fico 8 as that's what everybody else seemed to be doing. But I just checked and my EQ Fico 9 is the exact same score.

I've had a Savings account with the $5 min in it for 2 years before actually applying for a product. Never received any offers.  After my home closed last October, I took a shot and was approved for Gold $10k. Waited for my 91/3 (since the CSR recommended this) and applied cold for PCR.  I'm definitely feeling the PenFed Luv 🌱

Re: Pentagon Federal Credit Union Data Share

Without reading 584 pages of posts, I wanted to share a DP for everyone that may help somebody out.

 

A friend at work that I have been helping with credit came up to me today. She had gotten a mailer from PenFed similar to the one quite a few of us got last fall for the PCR and membership (hers was for the PenFed Gold). She remembered our conversation about the card, process, and the products that PenFed offers, so she took the bait and apped - approved for $8750. 

This is a good approval. What made it worth posting about is that although she has low 700 scores, she had high utilization on her Apple Card (~70%), a four month old mortgage, and she has a BK7 on her reports that is only about four years since discharge. 

I don't know what other DPs are in here about PenFed relating to BK, but as a CU they're known to be likely more sensitive to DTI than some big banks, and she has a new $144k mortgage and some CC debt on her approximately $50k salary. I'm impressed with the approval. She took it mainly for the 12-month 0% BT offer.

 

Hope this helps someone out there!

I have been helping a friend too and attempting to lean them towards Penfed.  Agreed, that is a good approval

Re: Pentagon Federal Credit Union Data Share

Nextgen was an internal score they used a few years ago but I don't believe it's still a factor. These days it's EQ09.
