  5. Interest charged is what the consumer pays to borrow money, the interest on a car loan or a mortgage or a credit card, etc. Interest paid is what the bank or savings and loan (or credit union) pays depositors for the use of their money (on a savings account, a certificate of deposit, etc.) Currently deposits earn interest at about 1% or less. Credit cards charge the customer upwards of 18%. Student loans charge around 10%. Mortgage interest rates are at around 3% or 4%. There is a difference between interest paid and interest charged. Why would that be?
