NFCU Referral Promo... Your Experience?

Hello all!

 

I was wondering if anybody had any notable data points or other feedback related to referring a family member for new NFCU membership, specifically with the $50 promo (either the current one or from a few months back).  I'm specifically interested if the bonus applies to a spouse and children.  Smiley Wink

 

Any feedback welcome... I'm especially curious to see how the bonus(s) played out!  Smiley Very Happy

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: NFCU Referral Promo... Your Experience?

Hopefully I can add DP's to this next week, I will be making two referrals Monday. I tried to send the email referral tonight but it didn't send. I got a postal failure message. Will try again tomorrow, but will have DD and sis call on Monday, and speak with the nice representative that called to welcome me.

Re: NFCU Referral Promo... Your Experience?

When I joined they had the $100 bonus for each person (Current and new member received $100)

 

My parents joined making me eligible. $100 for each of us.

I had my wife join and we each received $100.

 

Not sure how it is working on the new promotion.

This is encouraging... even though the promo amount has changed to $50 I would expect (?) it to work the same way you're describing.  Smiley Wink

Thanks for asking this, UncleB. I was interested in this, too.

I know how you feel.  I joined using my USAF brother as my sponsor, and I'm considering having our brother that is interested in joining now use him as well (instead of me) to minimize the chance of any issues.

 

On the other hand, my own membership is completely legit and if they were to 'verify' anything it would come out OK in the end... I'm just not sure I want to deal with the possible hassle. 

 

I will add that before I joined I had my USAF brother join first, so I hope that since my sponsor was already a member (I entered his access number when I joined and was instantly approved) that will keep any problems from coming up later on.

Re: NFCU Referral Promo... Your Experience?

I didn't receive a referral promotion e-mail, but I had my husband join last month prior to any promo e-mails.

 

I don't think I would have used the referral promo anyway, since I've personally experienced how jumpy NFCU can be when you're a new member and would not want any affiliation with what I went through (having my accounts locked and my funds tied up for weeks) to affect a family member. Best and easiest in my opinion to just have us join separately. Smiley Happy

I called Caroline to let her know they wanted to join and she called them herself, and processed everything on the phone, said they will receive something in the mail to sign and welcome packet in the mail in the next 7-10 days (possibly a little longer) due to overwhelming membership apps. this month. They have access numbers already, savings accounts only.
