Editors Review

A rare combination - rewards card with low APR and no annual fee

Pros

  • No annual fee
  • Very low 9.50% ongoing APR
  • 1 point per $1 for all purchases
  • Redeem your points starting from 10 000 points for $100 on airline tickets of any US-based airline. The more expensive tickets cost you fewer points per dollar.
  • No blackout dates, no seat restrictions, you can earn bonus rewards from your airline at the same time
  • No balance transfer fee
  • No penalty APR

Cons

  • FICO score of 750+ is needed
  • Bank need your W-2 form and can call your employer to verify it. The application process is not the easiest and not the quickest.
  • 2% foreign transaction fee

Verdict

Very good offer if you need a low APR card to carry a balance and still want to get some rewards. The card offers low ongoing expenses – no annual fee and 9.50% APR that will help you to save more. Card's 1% rewards rate that you can use for airline purchases is not the greatest  offer, but considering other options it is good enough.

If you are looking for a bigger travel rewards card, you can look at Capital One Venture Rewards card. If you need just a low APR card for emergencies, take a look at Simmons Platinum card with its record low 7.50% APR.
