Expert review

The Northern Inland Credit Union Visa Classic credit card combines two ways to save with a low introductory purchase rate and annual fee. Plus, the standard interest rate that applies after the first 6 months is competitive compared to many other cards on the market. But if your primary need is to cut interest costs, you could also consider a card that offers 0% interest on purchases for an introductory period.
