Additional Information About The Card

Your APR Can Fluctuate
The variable APR you receive is dependent on your credit history. Your purchase APR may vary monthly. The purchase rate is determined by adding a premium of 5.74% to 17.74% to the Prime Rate. The Cash Advance rate is determined by adding a premium of 17.74% to the Prime Rate. Your APRs may also be subject to applicable state rate caps.
 
Your variable APRs can go up or down each month as the Prime Rate goes up or down. If we change your APRs for reasons other than when the Prime Rate changes or you paid late as disclosed above, we will notify you in writing of your options in advance, including the right to opt out of certain changes. If you are an employee receiving the employee rate and leave qualified employment we reserve the right to adjust your APR based upon your risk score.  
 
Other Terms of Your Account May Change
We may change any other terms of your account, other than APRs, at any time, as permitted by law. If we change any of these terms, we will notify you in advance of your options in writing, including the right to opt out of certain changes.
 
How Your Variable Rate is Calculated
We calculate your variable rate by adding a premium to the Prime Rate published in the "Money Rates" section of The Wall Street Journal, and it can change up to three (3) days prior to your statement closing date. If the Prime Rate changes, your new rate will take effect on the then current billing period.

How We Determine Your Credit Line
We determine your credit line based on the strength of your credit history and the information you provide in your application. The minimum credit line is $500.
 
How We Calculate Your Balance
We figure the interest charge on your account by applying the periodic rate to the “average daily balance” of your account. To get the “average daily balance” we take the beginning balance of your account each day, add any new purchases / advances / fees and subtract any unpaid interest or other finance charges and any payments or credits. This gives us the daily balance. Then, we add up all the daily balances for the billing cycle and divide the total by the number of days in the billing cycle. This gives us the “average daily balance.”  A credit balance is treated as a balance of zero.
 
You May Receive Future Offers With Different Terms
At any time in the future, we may extend new offers in connection with this account, including opportunities to transfer additional balances. These new products and services may have different APRs, fees and other terms. We will provide any different terms when we make you the new offer, and you may accept or decline any such offer.
 
Payment Allocation
Each billing period, to the extent your payments exceed the Minimum Payment Due shown on your current billing statement, we will apply these excess amounts in order of the APR applicable to the balance of each transaction category generally from highest to lowest, beginning with the balance subject to the highest APR. Otherwise, we will apply payments and credits at our discretion, including in a manner most favorable or convenient for us. In all cases, we will apply payments and credit in accordance with applicable law.
 
There is a Minimum Income Requirement For This Card
The minimum gross annual income required for an account is $10,000. Applicants under 21 years of age must provide information indicating the ability to make the required payments for the account.
