Navy Federal Is The Best!!!!!

Greetings All,

 

Well... I just don't know what to say.. Navy Federal has brought a tear to my eye tonight.

 

This all started about 13 months ago where as part of my credit repair I opened a Secured nRewards Visa for 2k. Six months into this I raised the deposit and thus the credit limit to 5k, and then 8 months in up to 10k. In each case there was no credit pull for an increase, just the additional deposit. At 12 months on the mark, they automaticly released the 10k on hold in my share account and unsecured the card. I did not request this, heck, I did not even know until I logged in and noticed I had a much higher available balance in my share account.

 

After that, I called and inquired if I could have my card switched to the Flagship Visa Signature card. They did it without hesitation and without a credit pull. Given my international travels, this card serves me very well even with the annual fee. The additional rewards, lack of foreign fees, and extra perks more than make up for the annual fee.

 

And that brings us to today, month 13. I decided to roll the dice and try for a NavCheck just to see what would happen. I hate to eat in inquiry, but thought it was worth the risk. I decided to go for broke and requested the maximum a 15k limit. Instant Approval on the website.

 

I then asked to be transfered to the credit card department, and asked if it was possible to use the same inquiry to check for a credit increase. I mean, if that one went so well, lets see what else I can do. I was informed they are a seperate department and if the request had to go to manual review, it would require an additional credit pull. I asked if we could check for an instant approval and retract the request if it required a manual before a credit pull was performed. He said yes, that can be done. Well, I asked for an increase from 10k to 15k. I was informed the system would auto approve me for up to 22k, I was then asked if I wanted the 15k I requested or the 22k that was offered. Heck yes, I took the 22k. There was no credit pull required for this increase.

 

I feel like I am still dreaming. This is far and away the largest limit card I have, with the next best one being an old Orchard card, now Capital One for $1600...

 

I am 100% sold on Navy Federal. By far they have taken care of me more than I could ever have asked for. Even during those calls they kept thanking me for being such a good customer. Telling me that is why they are willing to do what they have done. They seem far more concerned with my relationship with them than past issues and problems. For any of you that are lucky enough to be Navy Federal members, take care of your comittments to them, they will do the same for you in turn.

 

Thanks for listening, and joining in my joy!

Here is what I can provide. Navy Federal pulled Equifax for the NavCheck. MPM shows my FAKO score on Equifax as a 660. If I had to luck out on any one bureau this was it as there are no baddies on this report other than an 8 year old Chapter 7 BK. There was also only one other inquiry on Equifax in the last 2 years.

 

I can confirm there was no pull for the Visa limit increase.

 

Please let me know if I missed any details.

      Say what you want about Discover, but this is a solid rebuilding option that starts at $200.

      Anyone know much about Suntrust credit cards?
       
      I have an old student loan backed by them but that's my only experience with Suntrust.
       
      Doesn't look like anything too exciting but not too bad either. Not much of anything in credit pulls.

      Anyone want to be a GP for one?
       
      The cash back card is 2% up to $6k on gas and grocery then goes to 1%.

      So, coming up on about 1 year of account history for a Credit One (yeah I know)
      and a First Progress secured card. Both have annual fee's, and I feel at this point
      I'm well in the right direction with about 35-40k in lines.
       
      Time to close them before the new year hits?
       
      What say ye!
       
      Also got a True Value card from comenity that had 1 charge put on it and nothing
      else, i got it cause I have a True Value close to me, but when I went to use the card
      they said they don't accept their own credit card there.
       
      So, its practically no use to me. There's no AF on that one, leave it alone and wait
      till they close it, or do that one also while I'm at it?

      I am the newest girl in navy blue!
       
      Totally giddy. I read so many great things about NFCU here.
       
      Just got off the phone with the recruiter's office which is open 24/7.
       
      My mom is a DoD civilian at Vandenburg.
       
      How long to wait until I should apply for a CC or CLOC? And which one(s)?
       
      Any suggestions welcomed. Thanks in advance!
