All You Want To Know Low Rate Credit and Low Rate Credit Cards

Aug 17, 2007
A low rate credit card is a great advantage to those people who would normally keep a balance on their credit card from month to month. If you were to take out a new card with a 0% APR introductory period then the balance from your existing card can be transferred onto the new card.

The main point of using a credit card with a low rate is to save you money if you are to keep carrying over a balance month after month. It is best to shop around when looking for a new card suitable for your personal needs. It takes time and effort to research and look around for the ideal card but it can save 1000s of dollars in the long term.

It can work out that the items you purchase on a higher APR card work out to be more expensive in the long run than the same items on a lower rate card. That is because if you have a low rate credit card and you don't pay off the balance, you are not going to be paying back anywhere near as much as you would if you had a higher APR card and had to pay more interest on the items you purchased if you didn't pay off the balance in full.

If you are considering balance transferring then a low rate credit card is a very good idea. Especially if you currently have multiple credit cards and are paying out a lot in interest each month. Another name for these cards are low APR credit cards, so don't be confused that you are hearing about two different types of card, they are the same thing.

It can be quite frustrating as most of the time the kinds of people that are wishing to have a low rate credit card, are those that are in financial difficulty and want to save some of the money that they are paying out.

Low rate credit cards are normally only available to those with excellent or above average credit so this can be a little, or should I say, very annoying to say the least, that the people that want these cards are the ones that can rarely get them.

Once you have researched and found a new low rate credit card, then you must make sure that you read the terms and conditions and abide by them. If you are late with just one payment then the interest is likely to go up to as high as 30% and it could stay that high for up to 12 months.

When a card is said to have a low interest rate it is normally that of between 10 percent and 20 percent. Some credit card companies have been known to offer an interest rate as low as seven percent, although this is not often and quite unlikely. Lower rate cards are normally only available to those that have perfect credit, but sometimes, even if your credit rating is not so perfect there are still some companies out there that are still able to offer you are low rate credit card.
