relidtm's review: Callout Comment Great travel card, they gave me 30k points with 650$ in purchases.. in addition to the promotion of double points on restaurants and hotels.. as well as 5x points on air travel. Did I mention they beat most advertised rates on air travel? Its not dramatic mind you but its typically around 10%+ defiantly worth it for not paying an annual fee at all.

Remarks Pen Fed is one of the best CU's out there, along with a few others such as NFCU and PSECU. Great card products, and excellent customer service. Great rates and starting CL's as well. Did they request a ton of documentation when you opened this account?

Remarks Yes forgive me if I didnt write more. They gave me an information packet and I am 9500 from VIP lounges, I will let you know how it goes.. It helps that I put 5k down payment on a car and racked in the points. They sent me a packet that was similar to my amex gold I had years ago.. but they actually give me more points.. and it doesnt cost a thing.. best part about it. Right now they are doing a promotion on restuarnts with 5x more points as well as hotels. They sent me a nice packet with a brocure that told me everything I ocd over on the website. The customer service when you call in is also very fast. I have never waited more than 2 minutes, it makes me wonder why I ever kept my amex gold for so long.

Remarks Can I ask what your scores were at the time of applying? Im really interested in applying for this card, Ive had a savings with them for over a year, and want to try but not sure if my scores are good enough.

Thanks! :)
