Looks like the generosity of nfcu Is on a hold as of now because of covid 19
Low limit on first card is the norm.
Might just take some time. I am reading that they extend more credit after 3 statement cycles.
Here is some good reading ...You can ask for a CLI @ 91 days and 3 full statements!
Congrats on the NFCU Amex! The others are right in saying they sometimes are a bit conservative with members on their first card, especially if credit isn't stellar and/or well established. If you look at my profile, you'll see that it can grow since my NFCU Amex started @ 1k as well.
Best of luck!
Congratulations on your NFCU More Rewards approval!
Congratulations on your nfcu approval in time you will have more spending power and increase!
