Bitter-sweet NFCU victory

Applied earlier this morning for the Cash Rewards Visa, got the 24-48 hour message. Just got the email saying I was approved for only $500 at their highest rate. That says I just barely got approved. Well, at least I didn't waste a HP. Going to use this as my main card and hope it grows.

I wouldn't be so sure about the HP. Don't be surprised if it pops up.

Never mind, @Bbcatcher set me straight Smiley Happy

Congratulations!

@SouthJamaica- I think OP meant at least they didn’t waste a HP and didn’t get approved since it was approved for only $500

Re: Bitter-sweet NFCU victory

Congratulation’s on your approval and welcome to the NFCU family. I just joined last month on the 16th for the GoRewards due to my restaurant 3%. I too only got approved for 1k. But I’ve been using it alot and paying it down. I look forward to my 91/3 when I can apply for my 2nd Card. Enjoy the perks of NFCU.
