The annual percentage rate (APR) is the cost of credit on an annual basis expressed as a percentage.

An interest charge is the sum of interest on your credit card account, and it is broken down by transaction type: purchases, cash advances, and balance transfers. If you pay less than the full balance or pay after the payment due date you will pay interest on those purchases. Please note, cash advances and balance transfers have no grace period, which means they start accruing interest as soon as the transaction is made. This will result in interest due, even if your balance is paid in full.

The prime rate is a fluctuating rate of interest determined by an individual financial institution to use in pricing short-term loans. The Wall Street Journal’s published prime rate is used as the index.

The periodic rate is a rate of interest charged that may be imposed by a creditor on a balance for a day, week, month, or any subdivision of a year.
