Low rate credit cards

  • Low rate credit cards are a cheap way to manage your purchases if you, ahem, forget to pay off the total balance from time to time. While many credit cards charge 20% or more on purchases, low interest rates can save you hundreds of dollars a year.

  • Where can I find low rate credit cards?

    Most credit card providers now offer low rate deals - and they're perfect for people with a little credit debt, as you'll avoid disastrously high interest payments and pay off your debt faster. However, you'll usually encounter an annual fee and little in the way of a rewards program.

  • Do I need the lowest rate credit card or a balance transfer?

    Good question! So good, in fact, we can't answer it here. But with a couple of quick details our Credit Card Health Check tool can answer it in seconds (it's that much cleverer than us).

  • Can I apply online for a low rate credit card?

    Indeed you can - simply hit the 'go to site' button to the right of your low interest rate credit card and we'll shoot you through to an online credit card application with the provider.
