Credit card rates stayed steady this week, according to Bankrate's latest survey of interest rates. The average annual percentage rate, or APR, for variable-rate credit cards remained unchanged at 15.38 percent. The APR for fixed-rate cards didn't move from 13.02 percent, where it has been for more than a year.
American Express said on Monday that it's offering a new credit card aimed at busy moms, called Amex EveryDay. The card earns two rewards points for every dollar spent at U.S. supermarkets, up to $6,000 a year. All other purchases get one point per dollar. The card also gives 20 percent extra points to cardholders who make 20 or more purchases in a billing period.
