The average annual percentage rate (APR) fell to 14.96 percent. This is the fifth time this year rates have declined. However, unlike previous changes, this week's rate change was due to a reshuffling of the CreditCards.com database.

Occasionally, CreditCards.com adjusts the database in order to more accurately reflect the credit card market. This week, we removed four cards that were no longer available online and replaced them with an equal number of similar credit cards. One of the new cards - the True Earnings credit card from Costco and American Express - featured a lower APR than its predecessor, the Citi Platinum CITGO MasterCard. As a result, the national average declined slightly.

Average APRs for rewards credit cards and balance transfer cards were also affected by the change.

The CreditCards.com credit card rate survey (permalink: http://www.creditcards.com/rate-report) is conducted weekly, using offer data from the leading U.S. card issuers' websites. Introductory offer periods and regular interest rates will vary with applicants' credit quality and issuer risk-based pricing policies.
