“Redeem Points for: Cashback, Gift Cards, Brand name merchandise and Event Tickets”
Found cash value at <$0.01 ($.007 to $.0083) until you redeem at least 15k points for $150 to checking/savings/credit card:
https://rewards.texell.org/product.php?seq=13&product=39270&brand=00430&model=1001-0015&gift=true

Gift card redemptions all appear to be same redemption as well, so no perks for that.

Thanks. Looks like “Credit Card” redemption min is 2100 points for $15, …, 12000 for $100, then 15000 for $150, also at same 1cpp are $250, $350, $500, $750 and $1000. Seems pretty reasonable, if you ask me. “Savings” and “Checking” options seem the same as above, too.

If any guinea pigs apply, can you report out which bureau they pull? Thank you!

Not sure where this longer list came from, but their main membership page is slightly different; note that with the links description below, the Credit union is open to ALL texas residents if they join the “Texas Consumer Council”:

This is where I got it, after clicking the apply button. It asks whether you are elogible, and this is below it.

I am not eligible based on what I found, but I do live in TX so would love to be able to apply.

Their loan application page, just probably hasn’t been updated…

I would just click the qualified button and move on this if you’re interested.

Based on their own membership page you qualify based on what you’ve stated and I even found a 2019 annual report which indicated 2018 results and that:

“Texell now serves anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Williamson County, Texas AND
all Texas residents who are members of or wish to join the Texas Consumer Council.”

My successfully submitted just now. The applications seem to be manually reviewed and decided in an hour.

I pulled the plug on this one since I have some upcoming purchases that will easily get me to the 5k requirement. Applied online and received a phone call a couple hours later to tell me I had been denied. They said more details to come in a letter, I did not push for more info.

Too bad, this one is 0/3 from the recent TX account deals I tried to open so I’ll take a break for a bit.

I successfully opened the Signature Bonus card. But in order to get that opened, you will need to become a member by joining the American Consumer Council (which is free with promo code “consumer”). I also opened up a Savings account which they asked. A lending consultant will also call you regarding the application. Tedious but not bad experience.

Denied. Reason: “Too many accounts opened in the last 12 months.”

I’ve only opened three cards total this entire year. Granted, two of the cards were opened in the last three months, but still, their manual review process seems pretty strict.
