The best credit card rate for good credit is 0%. Most 0% APR credit cards require good credit or better for approval. But 0% rates are only temporary. Once they expire, you’ll pay the regular APR. In that sense, a good credit card rate for good credit is below 20%.
That’s generally the starting point for people with credit scores from 700 to 749. Interest rates are usually listed as a range. So the higher your credit score, the better your chances of securing an interest rate at the low end of the range. Other factors such as your income and debt level also play a part in determining your interest rate.

A good credit card rate for good credit can save you money if you’re paying down debt. But if you pay your credit card balance in full every month, a credit card’s interest rate will never be an issue. Maintaining a good payment history and reducing your debt-to-credit ratio will help raise your credit profile. In turn, it will improve your chances of qualifying for credit cards for excellent credit.
