Credit Card Interest is often quoted in APR. That is Annual Payment Rate. You can calculate how much interest you are expected to pay by Calculating APR (which is surprisingly easy).

Zyra's affiliate website needs Freedom Of Speech more than it needs the Royal Bank of Scotland's credit card affiliate program, so, until the terms and conditions are improved so as to allow freedom of speech, we'll just do without the Credit Card for now. However, there are other credit cards on this page which allow personal expression to be given voice, so it's up to you to shop around.
More Than > - It DID exist; there's no point in being in-denial.
- Rejected this site for their affiliate program because the site has some gambling links on it and because the webmaster's house is not in the United States. Additional shame be upon American Express Australia for wasting time and resources here which could have been better spent on worthwhile programs.
The preceding is a list of places whose affiliate program has gone
Other Credit Card Companies- You are welcome to apply for a link on this page, subject to status. Especially if you will include us in your affiliate program!
Plus, other sites that compare credit cards. This page was getting rather a lot of them, so they have been moved to a new page: the Credit Card Comparison page.

The interest on Credit Cards is often quoted in APR ("Annual Payment Rate"). You can calculate how much interest you are expected to pay by Calculating APR (which is surprisingly easy).
Also see the Tk Maxx fraud and the helpful update by Experian
The convenience of paying for things online via the Shopping Portal is such that credit cards are very handy even if you have plenty of money and don't need to borrow any. But now, there's a new type of cards, where you can pay for things online, but without the debt problems associated with credit cards. So now see Pre-Paid Cards
If you receive an emails for credit card refunds from a hotel, don't open the attachment. You've probably never stayed at the hotel, and the senders don't know your credit card number, but if you open the attachment, your computer might catch a virus. See Antivirus Software and Care about opening e-mails.
CASH - is accepted in millions of places worldwide, implies wealth by possession of it, rather than debt, and does not charge a commission to the merchant from which you are buying. Special discounts can often be arranged by use of expressions such as "Discount for CASH?", to which the response can sometimes be "CASH?! That will do NICELY!"
On the Gambling Page there is the warning "You should only gamble what you can afford to lose". On this CREDIT CARDS page, you are advised to heed this:
You should only borrow what you can afford to pay back
Don't be put off by my funny ideas about paying in CASH. I also think that if people want a credit card, they should have a good choice of them, and I want to include as many as possible on this page. If your company has the best card, you must realise that if the customer gets the free choice I intend to offer, chances are it'll be YOUR card that gets chosen.
Special note regarding the matter of Mastercard, Visa, and Wikileaks: Zyra's website is an independent affiliate shopping portal and supports FREE SPEECH. If Visa and Mastercard have chosen to pull out of allowing donations by the good public to defend/support Internet Martyr Julian Assange (political prisoner), then they really should question their morals. If they have been forced by political pressure from modern quazi-Nazi political governments in the modern world, then their businesses should emigrate for tax purposes and/or alternative offshore banking arrangements should be set up so we the people of the world can be free of such coercion.
Visa and/or Mastercard may remain on the pages if they wish, but now as a matter of protest, here's a link to http://wikileaks.ch/ alongside other Freedom of Action
