Only people who qualify for membership can be referred.

  
   confused  because:



Everyone qualifies for NFCU membership.

OK, sure, for certain individuals it might be necessary first to join the San Diego chapter of the Navy League.  But anyone can join, and once having become a member that person qualifies straightaway for NFCU membership.  Thus, in essence, again:

Everyone qualifies for NFCU membership.

I was told by NFCU that membership by joining the San Diego Council of the Navy League is no longer available,

Just remember they do a hard pull on your credit for membership. Not sure if that is worth the $50.00 "gift"

  Every credit union does a hard pull for membership.

  Many credit unions do a hard pull for membership.

Just about all of them do. The exceptions are if you have a job in the company with which that credit union is originally associated. For instance, the State Department or NASA credit unions. If you actually are a State Dept. employee or a NASA employee, you may be able to join without a hard pull. Expect a hard pull if you are not an employee of the organization for which the credit union was founded.

I've been a member of about half a dozen credit unions.  The only hard pulls were PenFed and Navy.

so if I, a non military NFCU member refer a relative who is also not military and is only able to join because they are my relative... that person would not get the $50 membership bonus and I would not get the $50 referral?

Edited:  This bonus is only for military and dependents according to a rep at NFCU.

How do you apply using the membership in San Diego chapter of the Navy League? I dont see that option online.
Do I need to apply by phone/mail?

  this link goes to logon prompt and Im not seeing something similar when logging in
EDIT: ok its taking me to the page you are linking to now in chrome but I see no reference that doing this will give child + parent $50 each.  Did this work for you already?

"Members eligible for this offer include Coast Guard, all Department of Defense uniformed personnel, reservists, Active Duty, retired, Army and Air National Guard, DoD civilian employees, contractors and their dependents."

Is there some historical knowledge of them granting the bonus that trumps this language? I only recently joined NFCU but this seems to say that only military folks can do this. It is in connection with miltiary month so that may be some rationale for it being different from other offers.

The last such offer clearly articulated friends and family: Linky

You're right. This one is only for military or dependents.
