Planning app(s) for NON-reward cards

I'd like to add Discover IT to my mix sometime this summer but I am fairly content with the current  mix of cards I have (really want to upgrade my US Bank CC to cash+)

 

I am wanting to add cards that have lower rates/fees on things in the unfortunate even I get to the point where I cannot PIF.

 

Barclaycard Ring

 

-APR is Prime +4.75

-No Balance transfer/annual fee

-Cash advance fee is $1

-FTF 1%

 

DCU Platinum Visa

 

-APR 8.5%-18.00%

-No Balance Transfer/annual fee

-No cash advance fee

-FTF 2%

 

 

I had a C/O card from Navy when I was still in the service and left and was unaware of how credit worked.  Not sure if I can get back in with them or not.  Thoughts suggestions and comments are encouraged and welcomed.

Capital One Quicksilver- $5,000 (Thanks Cap1 Executive Office <3) | Chase Freedom - $7,100 | Chase Amazon -$1,000 | Priceline Visa -$10,000 | US Bank Cash+ - $18,200 (I know what an odd limit) | Fidelity Amex -$10,000 | Sallie Mae- $10,000 | Walmart $15,000 | DCU Platinum $12,000 | Discover IT - $7,500 | Amex EveryDay - $10,000  | Citi DoubleCash - $15,000

You could just open cards with 12-18 month 0% APR periods every year or so and/or balance transfer to the Chase Slate card (0% APR for BTs for some period, no BT fee) if you have a big balance.

 

I don't know too much about general low-APR cards.  I'd imagine credit unions are good for those.

Chase Sapphire Preferred - 5.6k (3/13) | Amex Premier Rewards Gold - NPSL (1/13) | Chase United MileagePlus Explorer Visa Signature - 9k (1/13) | Amex Delta Gold - 6k (9/12) | Citi Forward Visa - 10k (10/12) | Discover It - 2k (2/12) | Chase +1 Visa - $300 (2/11)

So the trouble is with the APR range for DCU.  8.5% is a good APR, 18.00% not so much, lots of rewards cards around there.  So you would need to know what range of APR you might get, and how long it might stay there.

+1 to bs6054

One thing that is appealing about the Ring. If you get approved you know what apr you're getting. 8.5-18 is a huge range, and 18 on a card with no rewards is terrible.

You can also look into opening a Citi credit card. As long as you keep it in good standing there is constant 0% BT (sometime 0% purchase) offer.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

Just came across your post and found it interesting.

 

What did you wind up doing? I have been researching low APR cards lately. I have found some good ones.
