I checked my EX CR - NASA FCU was a SP for both membership and the Travel Rewards Visa.

Mendelssohn, you are amazing. Thanks for the heads up on NASA FCU! I was instantly approved for membership, immediately applied for the card and got a fairly high limit (for me, at least)!

I will post whether SP or HP - though I promise not to worry about HPs as much anymore :)
How did you join NASA fcu?
Did you join NSS for $20 or found a way to do it for free?
TIA

Where did you get $20 from?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Go to https://www.nasafcu.com/. Under "Personal Banking" select "Membership." Select "Open an Account." A new window will open. Select "Open an Account." Under "Disclosure," select option 4 that begins with "I would like to become a member of the National Space Society (NSS)- this membership is complimentary and entitles me to join NASA FCU." Proceed with membership, fund a savings account for $5 and go back to the home page. Select "Apply for a credit card" and you'll have three options (I selected the Travel Rewards Visa). Complete the application by selecting "Prefill the Application." Enter your brand new NASA FCU credentials and complete the app. I got two SPs on EX, though YMMV.

Could someone explain what's the bug deal?  Is there a good offer or something?

Mendelssohn and I came here from CreditBoards. We were helped when we started out and we are just paying it forward.
Just curious, how did you hear of DDF ? And how would you compare DDF'ers to CB'ers ? :)

I've been browsing DD for years, so I was always aware of the site. Just never read the forums that much over here. 

I feel like the members here are very helpful to each other, however I also feel like certain members are very critical.

You've been here a while I see. How am I doing so far? Do you read my posts here?  :)

Just now or years ago?  Until 1-2 years ago, anyone could join.

If you just joined, see if they will let you open a checking account.
i signed up for usaa years ago back when they allowed non military to sign up and open bank accounts. I never opened a bank account though do you think I will still be able to?

Does NASA credit card report monthly to the three credit bureaus?

It's an easy-to-get card with a soft pull that approves a relatively high limit. Might not be for everyone, but I like having the large credit line available for emergencies.
