Applied for the nRewards with NFCU since I just got discharged from a BK7.
Was instantly approved online for the $200 I chose to deposit.
Will be getting an SSL soon.
Now I have my 3 cards, so hopefully I can start gardening soon.
Great start. Treat that card well and I'm sure in a little while NFCU will open up more cards for you in the future!
Congratulations on your NFCU approval!
Congrats on the new card!
The 3 revolvers I've understood is a great plateau to garden with!
I wish I'd done what you did (acquired a second card) instead of getting a tiny secured loan that I never use, go figure.. loaning myself $100.
Congrats on the great approval and first step (of many future CLI's) into Navy!
Congrats! This is a good place to start, I went through the same process around this time last year. They are very good about auto upgrading around the 6 month mark, I started with $500 on mine and when I graduated to NRewards unsecured they gave me an initial limit of $2,000. Something to remember: They pull your EX report for initial account, but moving forward when you apply for new cards they will pull TU-so make sure it is in order before you apply for another card. My credit history was very very bad, and after a year I applied for the More Rewards AMEX through NFCU and I got instant approval for $25,000. Keep up the good work, NFCU is very generous as long as you are responsible with them.
Been there, done that and it worked out great! Congrats.
