This Mastercard issued by Barclays caters to older adults, offering rewards for the essentials like drugstore purchases, gas, and even medical expenses. It’s also not a bad choice if you’re looking to transfer over some debt, as you’ll get a 0% intro APR for 15 months on balance transfers.
The AARP Essential Rewards Mastercard aims to please its older customers by offering a card with rewards for your everyday expenses.
You’ll get a 0% intro APR for balance transfers for 15 months, then your rate will be 16.74%, 20.74%, or 25.74% Variable. That rate is only for transfers made within 45 days of account opening, and you’ll have a transfer fee as well.
You can check one of your FICO scores for free, and you may get some other basic Mastercard benefits, but you likely won’t find any fancy features on this card.
This card has a 3% foreign transaction fee and no annual fee.
