APR or annual percentage rate is the interest rate on a credit card account stated as a yearly rate. A 0 percent Intro APR credit card means that the temporary interest rate is zero. A credit card with a zero percent Intro APR offer on purchases lets you carry a balance during the offer period without accruing interest. But you will have to make minimum payments each month, and you should plan to pay the full balance before the end of the intro period.

 

If you don’t pay your entire balance in full and on time each month, you will be charged interest on your purchases. With a 0% Intro APR on purchases, you pay no interest on your purchases for the length of the introductory period. You do have to pay the minimum monthly payment even when you have a 0% APR during the intro period. Once the intro period ends, the APR will return to the standard purchase APR, so it’s a good idea to plan to pay off your balance in full before the end of the 0% APR intro term.

Discover offers credit cards with low intro APR periods of up to 15 months, depending on which card you qualify for. Checking to see if you’re pre-approved is fast, easy and won’t impact your credit score.4

Yes, you will earn cash back or Miles on new purchases made on your Discover Card, whether or not you’re using a 0% Intro APR offer. If you transfer a balance to your Discover Card, you won’t earn cash back or Miles rewards on the transferred balance, but you’ll continue to earn rewards on any purchases you make on your new credit card.

During the introductory period, you won't owe any interest. But if you don't pay off the balance in full before the end of the introductory period, any unpaid balance will accumulate interest at the credit card's standard interest rate.

The interest rate on your credit card doesn't affect your credit score, but opening a new credit card account can temporarily lower your score. And remember, if you run up a high balance because you have a low introductory interest rate, you may increase your credit utilization ratio and hurt your credit score. However, opening a new account and keeping the balance low can improve your credit score, so once you pay off the purchases your make on your new account, your credit score may go up.

Using credit responsibly to establish and maintain a good credit history may help you qualify for a low intro APR. Responsible use of credit may include paying your bills by the due date and keeping your balances low.

Some 0% Intro APR card offers temporarily give you an interest rate of zero on new purchases, and other credit cards offer a 0% Intro APR only on balance transfers. Some Discover Cards offer a 0% Intro APR on both purchases and balance transfers.

 

Usually a 0% Intro APR balance transfer offer comes with a fixed transfer fee that you pay upon transferring your balance.

  2. 2% Cash Back at gas and restaurants: You earn a full 2% Cashback Bonus® on your first $1000 in combined purchases at Gas Stations (stand-alone), and Restaurants each calendar quarter. Calendar quarters begin January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1. Purchases at Gas Stations and Restaurants over the quarterly cap, and all other purchases, earn 1% cash back. Gas Station purchases include those made at merchants classified as places that sell automotive gasoline that can be bought at the pump or inside the station, and some public electric vehicle charging stations. Gas Stations affiliated with supermarkets, supercenters, and wholesale clubs may not be eligible. Restaurant purchases include those made at merchants classified as full-service restaurants, cafes, cafeterias, fast-food locations, and restaurant delivery services. Purchases must be made with merchants in the U.S. To qualify for 2%, the purchase transaction date must be before or on the last day of the offer or promotion. For online purchases, the transaction date from the merchant may be the date when the item ships. Rewards are added to your account within two billing periods. Even if a purchase appears to fit in a 2% category, the merchant may not have a merchant category code (MCC) in that category. Merchants and payment processors are assigned an MCC based on their typical products and services. Discover Card does not assign MCCs to merchants. Certain third-party payment accounts and digital wallet transactions may not earn 2% if the technology does not provide sufficient transaction details or a qualifying MCC. Learn more at Discover.com/digitalwallets. See Cashback Bonus Program Terms and Conditions for more information.

  3. About product reviews: We calculate the average product rating based on ratings that customers submit. We exclude some reviews from being displayed for reasons such as the customer included profanity, reviewed the wrong product, submitted inappropriate or irrelevant content, or revealed personally identifying information. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower rated. If a review is excluded, the associated rating is not calculated in the average product rating.

  4. There is no hard inquiry to your credit report to check if you’re pre-approved. If you’re pre-approved, and you move forward with submitting an application for the credit card, it will result in a hard inquiry which may impact your credit score. Receiving a pre-approval offer does not guarantee approval. Applicants applying without a social security number are not eligible to receive pre-approval offers. Card applicants cannot be pre-approved for the NHL Discover Card.
