How important is the interest rate?

This tool shows how credit card interest rates affect the amount of finance charges and therefore, the number of months it takes to pay off credit card debt. Higher interest rates can dramatically increase your credit card debt. Comparing credit card rates to find a good deal and learning how the card companies charge interest on card balances is essential.
