Teaser Rate

A teaser rate is an abnormally low interest rate that only lasts for a short time. It is offered by banks and credit unions to entice potential customers to open new credit cards or new adjustable mortgages. Once the teaser rate expires, the interest rate on the credit card or adjustable mortgage rises to the normal market interest rate.
