What is a credit card interest rate? What does APR mean?
A credit card’s interest rate is the price you pay for borrowing money.
For credit cards, the interest rates are typically stated as a
yearly rate. This is called the annual percentage rate (APR). On most cards, you
can avoid paying interest on purchases if you pay your balance in full each
month by the due date.
