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!
Without patience, we will learn less in life. We will see less. We will feel less. We will hear less. Ironically, rush and more usually mean less.
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!
