Like most things in life... this is a happy accident. I got a parking ticket for parking on my street - with my permit - and they still upheld the parking ticket when I contested it saying "placard not in full view" all this to say I really wanted to pay by card so as not to waste a points opportunity with the feeless merchant processing system they were using.
Flash forward to two days befor the due date, yesterday evening, and I get the bright idea to apply for the Navy Federal Master Card Platinum. From my account where i've had the CashRewards Visa for about a year now. So background of that card, nothing but small purchases never nearing my credit limit (1k) and always paid before statment posting.
I applied online through the membership portal "Open and Account" in the uper right hand corner. To my great surprise, APPROVED - 50,800.00 Cash Advance Available 17,400.00 at 17.99% APR. Pulled Equifax Credit Report: 763
Super awesome for not a huge relationship. I see what all the seasoned credit card cultivators here say about NFCU. Such a privilage to have men and women who fight for our country to protect our freedoms and liberty. Thank you all for your service. And of course your amazing credit union.
@californiaboy935, Congratulations on your approval! ...
Congratulations on your massive NFCU Platinum approval!
Wow that's a fantastic starting limit. Nurturing that 1K CR with patience was well worth it -- congratulations!
Oh my NFCU! Whatta a splendid CU you are.
Congratulations OP on a sparkling solid Approval of epic proportion.
Major kudos on this massive approval! I have 3 NFCU cards with a total CL of $50400, but that includes a few CLIs. Really cool to see that you were approved for more than that in one go!
