Local Credit Union Credit Card - Above & Beyond!

Hi all! I am so excited! I received a mailer last week from my local credit union that I was pre-approved for their Cash Back CC. They are offering free balance transfers & 3% of the balance transfer amount back as a statement credit. I figured I'd give it a shot even though my score is down with my recent (within 5 months) inquiries & new accounts. Online said "Congratulations! We will contact you within 7-10 days and will let you know if we need additional information." I figured I might get a low SL based on that.

 

Letter came - Approved for $7,500 SL! That's my other 2 highest CL COMBINED! ($3500 & $4000) I'm THRILLED! Plus, this confirms that I will do my direct deposits to my local CU rather than online to PenFed who has been stingy lately. Local CU certainly is showing me some love!!! Very happy!

Starting Scores: EQ (MyFico): 561 TU (MyFico): 579 - 2/15/13
