Expert review

This is a line of credit you can use exclusively at Tender Filet Credit, a mail-order company that sells steaks, beef, poultry, seafood, snacks and other foods. It has a $0 annual fee and a fixed purchase APR of 5.75% to 25.99%. Note that you’re more likely to receive a lower interest rate if you have a strong FICO score.

While this credit account can be useful if you’re a frequent customer at Tender Filet Credit, it doesn’t offer rewards. If this is important to you, you might get more out of a flat-rate cashback card like the PayPal Cashback Mastercard®.

The perks

  • No annual fee.
    You won’t pay anything to have access to this credit account.
  • Purchase APR as low as 5.75% fixed.
    With excellent credit, you may qualify for a purchase APR close to this figure. A low interest rate can be useful if you want to pay for your purchases over time.
  • Payments as low as $10 a month.
    Each billing period, your minimum monthly payment varies by your highest new balance. With a highest new balance up to $75, you’ll have a minimum payment of $10. If it’s between $3,000 and $3,150, your minimum payment will be $105.If your highest new balance is over $3,150, your minimum monthly payment will be 3.34% of that balance.

Pro tip

Consider paying off your balance in full each month — especially if your account has a high purchase APR or you spend a lot at The Tender Filet. This will ensure you don’t accrue interest.

You’ll also like

  • Opportunity to receive a higher credit limit.
    You may receive a higher credit limit as you consistently make on-time payments.

What to watch out for

  • No rewards.
    Many other credit cards offer rewards such as cash back, points or miles.
