With a low interest rate on local purchases, the biggest reward with the VERMONT Platinum credit card is the money you can save shopping locally. Not only do you save more, you make change, simply by banking when you support a local business. Traditional rewards cards may offer cash back, but not without higher interest rates. With our low-interest rate credit card, you’re rewarded in the form of greater savings when you carry a balance because you receive
- a low standard interest rate of 12.25% APR, and
- an even lower rate of 8.25% APR on Vermont-based purchases.
