Default APR

Default APR is the interest rate charged to cardholders who default on some term of their credit agreement, such as missing payments or exceeding credit limits. These interest rates can be astronomical, currently as high as prime +25.99%. Credit cards who have widened their definition of "default" to "universal default" may even charge higher interest rates when you default with another creditor.
