Measely 700 can easily become 7000 or 17k in a matter of months. Every profile is different and Navy definetly doesnt give limits based on score, id say more based on income and debt ratio.

+1 Yes alot of factors go in, you can't based other people's limits , all types of profiles.  NFCU will be generous if you use your card right. You should be happy to be approved .

Oh I agree I love the instant high starting limit when it happens, but also have been on the low starting end a few times. I could continue scratching my head at AMEX and discover for giving me low limits while others get HUGE starts, but I will just let them grow hopefully.

If it makes you feel any better there was a member just recently that was approved for a $500 card and a $15k CLOC and they were making over $100k.  Does that make sense?  Not to me.

 

I feel I got a lower limit just recently on the Platinum as well.  My current F9 on the NFCU site is 831.  I have no balances to transfer.  I was disappointed but I know it will grow with time so I didn't try to recon the SL.  

 

I know you see what I see, lower scores even with blemishes, being approved for crazy CLs.  There is no logic most of the time to this madness.  Whoever programmed that algorithm for approvals and credit determinations might just have been sniffing glue while typing.

Re: Navy Federal Measly 700 cl on Platinum Card.

My current scores are listed, I signed up back in sept for nfcu. Opened checking and savings and deposited 5 bucks in each, Apped for cash rewards...denied...apped for cloc chose 500 approved instant...let accounts sit till end of October, apped for gorewards, instant 3500 and apped for cli on cloc for 6k approved and just Friday I apped for auto refi 32k approved at 5.19 for 72m

I’ve not ever had to supply my poi which is 86.4k verifiable so not an issue if they ever do ask, I have 4 derogatories with one being disputed, so why all of a sudden they working with me when denied card right from start, luck of draw I guess, same with SL’s too it seems, they’re all over the board
