Looks like PenFed promise offers the lowest APR right now: 9.99%

 

With your credit scores, you're guaranteed a high limit, so I wouldn't worry about this. 


9.99% is definitely not the lowest available APR.


No, but are there lower ones on top-tier rewards cards (which I consider the Penfed Platinum Rewards to be, with 5/3/1 upcapped)

I agree with you, but just wanted to point out that 9.99% is not the lowest APR offered out there.

Yes, it is branch only at present.  But that really is mainly a reward card (a good one!) rather than low APR, with APR on new cards of a minimum of 13.99.   As previously mentioned, PenFed Platinum Rewards will give you a 9.99% APR, and often a limit as least as high as on the Cash Plus.  This gives the same grocery reward as the Blue Cash Everyday (but is uncapped) and gives 5% on gas rather than 2%.   (Personally, I prefer this to the BCE!)
