Fixed Rate

Credit cards can have either a variable rate or a fixed rate. A fixed rate credit card means that the rate will not fluctuate with the prime rate, or the base rate set by the Fed. This is a good thing to have if you have a low fixed rate on your credit card because you will never have to worry about it jumping up on you without any sort of notice.
