Yes, you read that right. When I first got out of the military, I opened a PENFED account, just checking and saving. Every couple of years I would apply for their credit cards and always denied.
I got married and my husband (civilian) was immediately approved for major loans, credit cards, etc. Well a couple of weeks ago, I applied for the Gold card as it was hovering above the accounts section, not an offer. The status kept saying it was under review, then finally it was approved for 7.5k (I have other cards higher with higher limits than this). I'll take it.
Like a petulant child, I said, what the heck, I'll apply for the Penfed Power Cash and voila, it was approved for the same limit.
So yes, eventually PENFED approves people who are persistent, lol.
I don't know anything about Penfed -I'm a Navy girl- but obviously you've had your eye on this one. Big congrats!!!
