Here's a look at the state of credit card rates from Bankrate.com's weekly national survey of large banks and thrifts conducted April 21, 2010.
Credit CardsRates: 13.7 percent (all fixed); 14.03 percent (all variable)
Average fixed and variable interest rates for all credit cards remain unchanged from last week. The mean fixed rate is 13.7 percent and the average variable rate is 14.03 percent. Columbus Bank & Trust added an annual fee, ranging from $12 to $50 for its rewards program. U.S. Bank dropped its overlimit fee and HSBC reduced its overlimit, cash advance and balance transfer fees.
Bankrate.com released its 2010 Credit Card Fees Study on Monday. The results show that few issuers impose annual or inactivity fees on their accounts.
