also pulled this off of there site for their platnium card...
No annual fee, late payment fee, over-limit fee, cash advance fee, balance transfer fee or online account access fee
sounds like a dream card there, now if it only had cash back =)

I'm not familiar with them but followed the link and this is what I found. Pretty much leaves me out.

I applied last May and was approved for the starting minimum. My scores were approximately what they are now and my application was brought before a committee (apparently standard practice). They are very serious about extending credit. I would ensure that your report is clean and next to zero inquiries (they pulled TU) would be a plus.
The aspects of the card a top flight and the CS has been the same. Now for the unfortunate news...
Effective 10/1/09 the interest rate will go from Prime + 1 (currently 4.25%) to Prime + 1--with a base of 7.25%.
This brings it in line with my Simmons Platinum (also going to variable 10/1/09).
Much like Simmons, it is tough to qualify for, but FCB (and Simmons) are quality banks and great cards to have.
