  • No annual fee

  • No foreign transaction fee

Cons
  • High APR

  • No rewards

The Capital One Platinum Credit Card is an excellent option if your goal is to build credit or raise your credit limit.

The $0-annual-fee card reports to all three major credit bureaus, and it charges no foreign transaction fees and no penalty APR for late payments. A key feature is that it gives you the opportunity for an increased credit limit after you make your first five monthly payments on time.

The card doesn’t earn rewards, and its ongoing APR is The ongoing APR is 28.49% Variable APR, so it’s not ideal to carry a balance. It’s better used as a tool to improve your credit. For more information, see NerdWallet’s full review.
