No problems . Im still stoked about my experience and am suprised more dont try them out. Seems alot of CU's present some form of difficulty to an out of stater but with open membership here, seems like a win
You know how it is with how the mindset works. We are usually after the "hot" or "known" thing and a lot of people wait on others to step out first to test the waters. Then, when it seems like there is momentum, the bandwagon starts getting full lol.

Figured I'd start a thread for data points on Langley.
This year i decided to find a replacement for Penfed as they seem to want nothing to do with me and my average profile
July i applied for membership with Langley online . I uploaded my DL and 2 most recent paystubs. Received very courteous call to confirm everything and decided to apply for their low apr Visa Select card. .Asked for $5000 and was approved at lowest apr, 8.75% , now 9.00% due to fed hike. I could hardly get $1500 out of Penfed when i had the Promise card lol.
So far any applications , including opening a membership , have been with Equifax, hard pulls are good for up to 30 days so ive been told, and have experienced.
Free Equifax Fico 8 monthly score.
Recently tried for the cash back visa as it seems there are some interesting 5% rotating cats , at least in the few months ive been a member. I applied on Sunday, Monday morning they called me about 10 am, yes, they are quick to follow up on an application, and was informed i was approved . Yeah! But mid call the csr agent realized i would have to cancel my low apr visa. Apparently im not qualified to have two credit cards so not sure if thats because of income, history, or what not. Said thank you but i like to kerp my low apr card. Withdrew app though i already got hard pull.
A few days later i figured let me try for a Line of Credit to utilize same pull and not have anything to show. Decided to just try for $2000 and put in my application. Wouldnt you know it, they called me back and said APPROVED. My first Line of Credit ever. And its at a respectable 9. 25% . They just send you e documents that you sign and easy peasy , its in my account.
So feel free to add data points as you join . I believe my last approval of the LOC had me at 755 Eq . Ive also started a small savings with Langley. Probably better rates out there but heck, a penny saved a penny earned. Also dont think they restrict you geographically. Not a branch anywhere even remotely close to me
It pains me to hear so many people's neegative experiences with PenFed. I just moved to them and they have been great, other than slow servers. Tho I have not dealt with them directly yet for support, etc. I did request assistance with Wealth MGMT for which I never heard back...maybe you all are right. Good luck with Langley!
