How to Apply for the Northeastern University Credit Card

The Northeastern University Credit Card comes recommended to anyone looking for a card with decent interest rates and a great rewards program. When making purchases, you can earn a small percentage in cash back. This percentage doubles when buying groceries and triples when purchasing fuel. The APR is dependent on your credit rating and you can expect an interest rate of anywhere from 13.24% to 23.24% (APR is subject to change). As you can see, this card’s APR ranges from reasonable to reasonably expensive when compared to other cards on the market. An added bonus though is the 0% introductory APR for the first 12 statement closing dates and no annual fee. While this card is labeled as a Northeastern University credit card, there is in fact no incentives for students or alumni. Regardless, if you’re interested in applying for this credit card, you can find all necessary instructions within this webpage. Scroll down to begin.
