what to expect in interest rates on credit cards
when you open a new credit card account there is such a wide range of interest rates you MAY end up with. What if you get the card and the rate is unacceptable? Ex. 10.99%-24.99% That's a huge difference.

What rate you get depends on your credit score and payment history.  There is no "one size fits all" interest rate.

Only Charge what you can afford to pay off right then and there.   If you can't pay off your Credit Card monthly then you have money management issues that you need to fix.

When you pay off your Credit Cards monthly you have a interest rate of 0 %.
