The post-introductory variable APR for the unpaid balance and any new balance transfers is based on your creditworthiness and will vary with the market based on the Prime Rate.

CardRatings Editor's Analysis: Pros & Cons

  • No annual fee
  • Not only does the card offer a 0 percent APR for 12 months on balance transfers, but it rewards you for making those transfers with up to a $100 statement credit for qualifying transfers.
  • This card earns just 1 point per dollar unless you're booking flights (5 points per dollar on flights). If you're looking to rack up points/miles on everyday purchases, look for a card with a higher rewards-to-dollar earning ratio, like the Barclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard® (See Rates and Fees)
