After some digging it turns out I don't have a low APR card. Everything I have is rewards based and is between 12%-16%, I am interested in the Ring as it seems to be a good option.

Anyone have any feedback on the Ring card?

No feedback on it yet, but I have been asking the forum for it since October hahaha! I am going to apply for it early June after my last app session rolls off. I will try to provide some feeback then :)

Don't forget to check out their new Arrival World Mastercards (no AF and AF versions available). They have 0% APR for 12 months on both cards as an intro incentive, not to mention a VERY generous rewards boost with qualified spend.

It looks like a fine card but I'm looking for something in the 7%-10% APR range for the long haul. This card will only be used if I want to take a few months to pay something off.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Yeah, I'm a little concerned that no one has any feedback after six months since you first asked. I saw the other post that showed how it doesn't do all that it claims with profit sharing and such. All I really care about is a simple card with no AF and low APR.

My credit union offers one and I may call USAA and see if they will convert my Rewards MC to a non-rewards version with a lower APR. That way I can avoid opening and closing accounts...
