Linux Foundation Credit Card: Help Nerds Out Every Time You Shop


The moderately powerful PC you yourself put together: $600. Your choice of Linux distro: Free. Having the geekiest credit card: Priceless.

The Linux Foundation credit card has no annual fee, low starting APR (although as Forever Geek’s Noemi Twigg pointed out, the APR inflates from 0% on the first month to 12.99% on the 7th month), and most importantly, funds raised from the credit card will be used in technical events for the Linux community, as well as travel grants for open source community members. Cardholders will also enjoy the perks that come with standard, penguin-less Platinum Visa cards. Go to CardPartner to apply.

    Do all credit cards in the US have APR? And the 12.99% APR is reasonable?

    In Europe I just pay my 25 Euros per year and there are no other costs for my Mastercard.

      Really, they don’t charge interest if you carry a balance? We don’t pay for debit cards, but we do pay if we’re borrowing money :)

        No there are no charges as long as the payment is on time. Normally, the payment is about one month later after your purchase. AFAIK the merchants. who charge with credit cards, have fees.
