    Question Star card

    Advertisements
    Before DH flew out today, he was telling me about it as a way to build his credit. He said that it has low interest and it's the one he puts allotments toward. Sounds too good to be true to me. Does anyone know? Where can I get more info about it?

    Their interest rates range from 9% to 12%, I think. depending on the prime rate. It's variable but it's always low. And when we used it, the amount you have to pay each month for each purchase will make you pay it off in 36 months. I'm just not sure if they still do that. Just google Military Star Card to get more info.

    It's a good card for building credit but he sure better not default on it. He can get in trouble by his command if he does. We have a Star Card.

    Do they work like normal credit cards? If that's the case, do they also start you out with very small credit limits? I'd definitely want to start small.

    We have one. DH got it when he first joined years ago. We don't really use it but yes the credit limit does increase. It should start out small.

    They don't work like normal credit cards in the sense you can only use them at the exchange or to buy gas on post. You can't use them anywhere. The online exchange mall has some good stores, though.

    Hmm. I guess the online stores for us then. We don't have any posts near us, although he is on one now.
