The national average annual percentage rate remained at 15 percent Wednesday after increasing the previous week for the first time in over a month.

None of the cards tracked by CreditCards.com offered new interest rates.  Promotional terms, including 0 percent balance transfer offers and introductory APRs, also remained unchanged. 

Average rates on new credit card offers are currently at a 7-month high. After remaining at or above 15 percent for most of 2014, interest rates slumped in November and remained below 15 percent for more than two quarters.

After declining intermittently between November 2014 and March 2015, interest rates began picking up again toward the end of the first quarter and have increased four times since the last week of March. 

The CreditCards.com credit card rate survey (permalink: http://www.creditcards.com/rate-report) is conducted weekly, using offer data from the leading U.S. card issuers' websites. Introductory offer periods and regular interest rates will vary with applicants' credit quality and issuer risk-based pricing policies.
