Is there a banking card or federal credit union card with 0%-10% or less APR?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Jun 8, 2015

Hi John,

There are numerous credit cards that have 0% APR for a set period of time after open an account. The longest of these would be the Citi Simplicity, which offers 0% APR for the first 21 months.

After the introductory period is up, the interest rate on most credit cards will usually jump to anywhere between 10%-22% depending on the credit card and the applicant’s creditworthiness. If you’re looking for a credit card with a low ongoing interest rate, I would recommend the Barclaycard Ring MasterCard which has an interest rate of only 8%.

Hi Raymond,

While American Express is certainly one of the top credit card issuers when it comes to rewards credit cards, they don't really have much of a reputation for offering credit cards with low interest rates. That said, one good option if you're looking for a low interest card from American Express would be The Amex Everyday Credit Card. This is a great rewards card that also comes with no annual fee and an intro APR of 0% for the first 15 months! After the intro period is up, the interest rate will fall between 12.99%-21.99% depending on your credit worthiness.

How about being more responsible. And maybe start paying your bills.

What would happen if you got sick, say Heart Attack or injury that prevented you to work and little or no income. What would you do? I think on the whole people would like and need to pay their bills, but little or no income what can a person due. They can pay as much as possible and let the Credit Card company know what is happening. Maybe you should reconsider your answer.

Hi Jane,

Typically, if you're trying to rebuild credit you'll need to start with a secured credit card. A secured card is essentially a credit card with a security deposit. You give the bank a small amount of collateral in the form of cash and they give you a credit card, usually with a relatively low line of credit. Paying you monthly bill on this card will help you build credit and prove that you're a responsible borrower. After 6 months to a year, once you've established a good repayment history and if you don't owe anything on the card, they will return your collateral to you and you can apply for a standard, unsecured card card.

The Capital One Secured MasterCard and the Discover it Secured Credit Card are both great options, but feel free to check out all of the options on our secured cards page!

0% Credit Cards & Interest Free Credit Cards

Low interest rate (or 0%) credit cards can save you hundreds of dollars on balance transfers and on routine purchases carried over as credit card balances. Or you may simply want to be rewarded with a preferential interest rate as acknowledgement for good credit history and responsible debt management. Whatever your goals or motivation, zero percent or low interest credit cards can help you maintain the lowest rates available to individuals with excellent to good credit. You can find out more about credit score here.

Keep in mind that there are two main categories of low rate credit cards, namely those that offer a Variable APR and those that give you a Fixed APR.  Just like with variable versus fixed rate mortgages, a fixed rate APR will remain relatively stable through the course of the loan. If your card company decides to raise it – which is somewhat rare – they will first notify you of that change according to Federal law requirements. With a variable rate, your APR is tied to a prevailing rate such as the Prime Interest Rate. If the prime rate increases then your APR will most likely follow in a similar fashion.

Generally speaking, credit card companies and banks will extend either 6 or 21 month offers – within the 0% to 3.99% annual interest rate range. That can generate a considerable discount when normal APRs are averaging around 15% or higher. Once the introductory promotional period expires, the APR on a low interest credit card or interest free credit card may revert to the regular interest rate. Of course the ideal balance is a credit card that offers a great near term rate followed by an attractive, competitively priced low interest rate for the long term.

The interest rate charged on your credit card is widely regarded as the single most important component of your card. That’s because it determines the major cost for you to borrow or roll over balances and pay them off over time instead of all at once or within the same month that you make purchases. That’s why getting a zero percent or low interest credit card can be huge financial boon, no matter what your credit card usage patterns or money management strategies may be.
