All I want is a card with no rewards and an extra low interest rate. You can keep the rewards, just give me lower rates.

I pay a fee for this card and it is worth it. I have a Chase card and if there are any questions you get to talk to a real person without wasting time with a hostile recording.

I have the AMEX with 6% at grocery stores. (up to 6k) The Discover with 5% back at wholesale clubs. (Up to 1500) You can really work it if you stay responsible and pay the balances every month.

Best Credit Card for Excellent Credit Holders

Those who have exceptionally good credit may want to apply for the best credit cards that especially cater to people with above average credit scores and stellar credit histories. Credit card companies will usually offer special perks, features, interest rates, and other preferential service to those who qualify for top credit cards.

By federal law you are allowed to access your credit reporting files free of charge once a year. For a small fee you can see them more than once per year and can also gain access to your FICO score – which is commonly referred to as your credit score. Credit scores for excellent credit range from 700 to 850 and are determined by using a proprietary algorithm which factors in several components of credit worthiness. If your score is above 700 that’s quite good and for most issuers is considered excellent.

To maintain your high rating follow the tips on how to preserve your credit. If you need help to improve your credit score to qualify for an excellent credit credit card, then take advantage of the many free, user-friendly financial management resources, articles, and tools that we offer. Once you have earned excellent credit you have a wide range of reward card options as well as promotional 0 percent introductory APRs which come with very attractive ongoing interest rates – typically around 12%.
