Upon investigating some more, I discovered that the credit card has 0% APR the first 15 months and is a point rewards card. The APR falls in the national average and the exclusive $0 annual fee is way below the $37 average. However, this credit card has a 3% on foreign transactions and limited rewards. Bank of America Bank of America’s top tier credit card (BankAmericard Travel Rewards) has no annual fee and a minimum purchases APR of 14.99%-22.9%. The APR falls in the average and the $0 annual fee is way below average. In comparison to Wells Fargo’s credit card, Bank of America’s credit card has no foreign transaction fees and the points earned do not expire. However, Bank of America’s credit card lacks entertainment rewards and has a 29.99% penalty interest rate.
