Bourns Employees Federal Credit Union 4.99% APR. Fairly hard to get due to geofence.

Re: Which credit card has the lowest rate?

There's a CU here in CO that has a prime rate card - currently 5%

https://www.spaceagefcu.org/loan-type/lend/credit-cards

 

It is crazy geofenced though. I can't even get in and I live in the same county. They want you to live and work in a small part of town.

Arapahoe Credit Union, which is open to everyone in CO but nobody else, has a secured card with a fixed 4.9% APR which is kind of unique. Their regular card is a fixed 9.9% or 12.9% though and I'm sure people can make more off their money with it not tied up in a secured card. 

Their website leaves a lot to be desired but they do support the CardNav app that many CUs use to control their cards.

Info might be a little dated but still pertinent.

 

What's the lowest CC APR you know?

Re: Which credit card has the lowest rate?

I have the BEFCU card at 5.49% F which is just a little higher than the lowest-available rate of 4.99%, but was really only able to get it bc I apped prior to the geofence.  I believe there is another myfico forum user who received a BEFCU card at somewhere around 7.xx% F, again iirc she apped before the geofence went into effect. 

 

EPFCU also has a low-APR card as low as 7.25% V (the website lists it as 7.50% V, but that was as of prior to the last Fed rate reduction), together with 1% rewards for every dollar spent.  I apped for and was recently approved for this card, at the 7.25% V rate  Smiley Happy

Re: Which credit card has the lowest rate?

Reading this thread and its predecessors taught me that my old BankAmericard with an APR of Prime + 1.99 (currently 6.74%), rewards and no AF is a pretty darn good card.

 

Thanks to all who shared their info!

Re: Which credit card has the lowest rate?

Are you talking about lowest publicly offered interest rate on any card? Or the lowest interest rate someone has & which card it is? (That could've been pre-approved; lowered APR over time, etc.)
