  1. I have an entry on Chexsystems that is almost five years old. It actually doesn't even belong to me, but rather to my father with whom I share my name. The last four digits of the SSN on the report don't even closely match mine. However, Chexsystems is steadfast in their refusal to remove it. To that end, I have had to circumvent Chexsystems and open my accounts at banks that do not subscribe to that silly service. In my experience, there are many credit unions that do not pull Chexsystems, including NASA FCU, PSECU, PenFed, Navy Federal, Apple FCU are just a few. I know Dept. of Commerce FCU unquestionably pulls Chexsystems, as does Alliant FCU, SECU, Georgia's Own, Congressional Federal and Dept. of Agriculture FCU. Additionally, I've found from experience that Chase and Citi uses Chexsystems, but SunTrust, TD, USAA and WF do not. I have come to realize, much to my satisfaction and surely to their chagrin, that Chexsystems' relevance and influence in the banking industry is slowly eroding. I hope this helps those of you who are stuck under the thumb of Chexsystems.
  2. Here's my big list of low interest credit cards, sorted by cash advance interest rate (excluding those with a big transaction fee). My starting point was the top 100 credit union list here: outbound link removed. Obviously, this is not the place to look for rewards cards, and a lot of people will prefer 0% balance transfer offers, but some folks may get a benefit. Feel free to reply with updates and additions, especially smaller credit unions that weren't on my starting list.

  3. Looking to help a friend refinance a high balance mortgage at $550K 80% LTV in a county that goes up to $625K. Time horizon is about ten years before property is sold. May need non-occupying owner to sign the note also to get DTI ratios acceptable. Current note is presently in the non-occupying owner's name (brother of home occupant). I'm looking at PenFed and NFCU so far. PenFed offers a 5/5 at 2.875% and no origination fees with a 2% cap on adjustment and 43% DTI only needing a 680+ FICO score, however, all borrowers must reside in the house. I don't know as much about the NFCU rates, so far it appears they offer a 5/5 at 2.5% and 0.25% origination fee but the rate varies with your FICO score, still getting more info on this one. Other Credit Unions to consider? What about USAA, how good are their mortgage rates?
  4. I joined Nasa federal Credit Union. Do I have 30 days or less to apply for a credit card in order to avoid a hard pull or does it matter?
  5. Hey CBers! I am in need of advice. Just completed an App Spree for DW. (I am still waiting on a few things, then I will post the whole shabang!) Nonetheless, at the end of the App Spree I decided to do a few last apps for some CU's (lesson learned, All Newbies, PLEASE READ CB BEFORE ATTEMPTING ON YOUR OWN!!). Alliant pulled a soft and DCU pulled a hard. The dilemmas are that 1) DCU approved her as a "Limited Member" due to balances on open accounts and current accounts less than 2 yrs old and are saying that they must pull another hard for any other apps (i.e. CC and LOC). So should I allow them to pull a hard, the new CR will show the app spree (inquiries and new accounts) and I am worried this could adversely affect her membership. OR is there anyone I can talk to that may be able to change the decision to do another hard pull? 2) Alliant says they would need to pull a hard since they only pulled a soft to join. Hence I am worried about the app spree showing up with all the new accounts and inquiries, is it worth a try? Any and all advice is appreciated. Thanks, BD

  7. Hello CB, I'm looking to add another Credit Union to the mix, one who is offering a 0% Balance Transfer option for more than 12 months? So far, it seems most credit unions are only willing to go up to 6mo. Except for PenFed which I have no chance of getting approved, due too many new accounts. Would like a Credit Union who prefers to pull TU, but I know that's a long shot! Any suggestions ?? Thanks so much!! Have a wonderful day. Credit Unions I already have accounts with.... 1. PSECU - Combo 2. Navy - cc, and Navchek 3. DCU - no credit prods. 4. PenFed - no credit prods. 5. Alliant CU - no prods. Scores are 700+ All clean
