When it comes to credit cards, there are a lot of choices. How do you decide which credit card offers the best value for you? We’re confident that you’ll love Reliant’s Visa Platinum credit card—especially when you compare it to other cards! Take a look at our credit card comparison, and you'll soon make Reliant's Visa your go-to credit card!
And if the comparison isn't reason enough, check out some of the other great features of Reliant's Visa Platinum credit card.
Reliant has a low introductory rate of 0% APR* for the first 12 months, and thereafter your regular rates start as low as 9.00% APR*. While you may find offers for lower introductory rates, you are likely to find that the regular rate that goes into effect after that promotional period could be much higher. The higher the rate, the more interest you may pay if you don’t pay your balance in full each month.
Reliant's Visa does not have an annual fee. In fact, it doesn’t have fees for balance transfers, cash advances or currency conversion. Fees can add up quickly! As an example, with many credit cards, if you were to transfer a balance of $1,000, you could typically be charged a fee between $30 and $50! With Reliant's Visa Platinum credit card, you wouldn't be charged a fee at all!
A Small Chip with Big Security
All Reliant Visa credit cards have EMV chips that are designed to better protect you from fraud. EMV cards carry security credentials that help prevent skimming and cloning. When a terminal is chip-enabled, it will read the magnetic strip and instruct you to insert the chip card into the terminal. (Click here for more information about EMV technology.)
