Alliant FCU Preapproved CC Offer

I got an email today saying I'm pre-approved for a credit card with $150 SUB. Question, for those who have gotten a similar  offer: were you required to submit POI?

 

I've seen many regular approvals where that was the case. I'm self employed and don't share tax returns, other than with Uncle Sam (and then begrudginglySmiley Wink)

Starting Score: (5/24/2018) -- FICO 08 EXP: 643; FICO 08 TU: 642; FICO 08 EQ: 677
Current Score (09/16/2020): FICO 08 EXP: 747; TU: 758; EQ: 775
2020 Goal Score: 760 across the board

Re: Alliant FCU Preapproved CC Offer

I have a very high credit score and it was like pulling teeth to get it approved, almost no debit at all. A friend has a lot lower credit score had he had the same issue with them and I thought it was his lower credit score and I found out that it's just the way they are. They wanted proof of address and nothing was good for them I'm lucky I have cable bill in my name as I live with my parents.

I pulled the trigger (TU HP) -- they want SS card, DL, Utility bill, & two years of tax returns. Ugh.

Re: Alliant FCU Preapproved CC Offer

I pulled the trigger myself

 

got the preapproval email, $150 Sub w/ 1500 spend in 90 days

and 12 mo 0% (don't need)

 

Applied HP on TU 

 

Went to Documents in Application and it is requesting last 2 paystubs... uploaded.... called and they said by monday i will know.   Hope with asking for POI and with the preapproval it goes thru.   Been a member since 2014... use the checking/savings... only leave about $600 in there.  Been getting auto loan preapprovals... but the $150 sub caught my attention... and i have had a good experience with alliant... 

 

Anyone know if you can link an alliant card as overdraft protection?   Hoping it is approved w/ a high limit.... and if not that it grows to a nice limit....

 

 

FYI in the docs it shows my truth in lending... my score is 691 on TU

Re: Alliant FCU Preapproved CC Offer

I got the email, too, but wasn't going to apply.  I've heard they're kinda picky, and I currently have rather impressive (or depressing) balances on various cards (all currently at 0%).

 

On impulse, I unfroze TU and gave it a try.  Apparently auto-approved for 10.24% (the lowest rate -- not so great for a credit union-issued bare-bones platinum card).  Limit of $10k.  So far, no request for add'l info, but there was some wording about rescinding the offer if I failed to provide requested info, so may be something still in the offing.

 

There's a 2% BT fee, so I probably won't use it for that.  I've been spoiled the last couple of years by Navy Fed's no-fee offers, BofA's Americard (before it went away for COVID), and a local CU that suddenly decided to get into the BT game with a no-fee offer (now they're at the standard 3%, but at least it's for 15 months.)

 

If it stays open (not gonna provide tax info, though I'm OK with paystubs), I'll just go for the $150 and hope they offer something more attractive BT-wise in the future.  Or maybe use it  if I end up really *needing* a BT urgently.  Have to read the fine print on how long the BT offer is good.
