This is a uber-prime card and very difficult to get. You can obtain the application from their website and look at it. Unless you have 800ish scores, squeeky clean CBR's and a high income I wouldn't waste the inquiry.

From a USAToday article (about credit scores) dated October 14, 2011:
"...an alarming number of those polled also had wrong ideas about other types of information being included in the equation.
"For instance, 64% believe that income is a factor..."
BTW, the Simmons First Visa Platinum is now a 7.25% variable rate (prime rate plus four), rather than a fixed rate.

Hi, welcome to the forums!
You have just replied to a thread from 2008.
Nothing wrong with that, but you might want to check dates on threads that come up via the search function. (I wish they'd change that default...)

There is not much information on this WWW forum about the Simmons First Visa Platinum credit card. IMHO, some of the information in the post to which I replied (yes, I noticed the date) was incorrect. I tried to improve the signal-to-noise ratio for anyone who may be seeking information about that credit card.

Are you actively trying for the card, or just improving "the signal-to-noise ratio for anyone who may be seeking information about that credit card"? In other words, are you actually thinking of applying for this card, and if so, could you share (in a very general and unidentified way) any info about your credit history that a potential lender might see?
We might be able to help you out a bit.
