What's the Highest Credit Card Interest Rate?
In the U.S. there is no federal law that limits the rate of interest that a credit card company can charge. However, there is a maximum of 36% for active U.S. military members and their dependents.
Perhaps because of this law, there is no credit card with an APR greater than 36% as of July 2023.
In 2009, First Premier Bank offered a card with a stunning 79.9% interest rate, probably the highest ever.
