Intro APR

That is the "Introductory Annual Percentage Rate".  its a usually special rate for a short (0% for 12+ months) period of time as an incentive to aquire a particular credit card.  The APR is the rate at which interest will be accessed on the balance due on your card if it is not paid in full each month. That rate is generally 12% to 24% per year.  The rate you are charged is based on your credit score, The better your score the lower the rate you get charged.
