No annual fee, late payment fee, over-limit fee, cash advance fee, balance transfer fee or online account access fee

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

Re: First Command Bank Plat CC...

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.

 

 


Starting Score: TU 766 EQ 788
Current Score: TU 788 EQ 811
Goal Score: TU 800 EQ 800
