Important Information about Opening an Account

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth or other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask for your driver's license or other identifying documents.

ImportantCalifornia Residents:
If you are married, you may apply for a separate account.

Using Your Account

Your Agreement

You agree to use your Account in accordance with this Agreement. You agree to pay us for all amounts due on your Account, including charges made by Authorized Users. You agree not to use your Account for illegal transactions.

Use of Account

You may use your Account to make purchases anywhere the Card is accepted. If your Card has the logo of one of our network providers (e.g., American Express, Visa and Mastercard), you may use your Account to make Cash Advances.

Authorized Users

You may request Cards for Authorized Users. You must notify us if you wish to cancel the authority of an Authorized User to use your Account.

Joint Accounts

If this is a joint Account, each of you agrees to be individually and jointly liable for the entire amount owed. Any notice we send to either of you will serve as notice to both of you.

Credit Authorizations

We may decline to authorize a transaction for any reason. We will not be liable to you if we do or if anyone refuses any use of your Card.

We will tell you your credit limit or limits. Keep your balance below your credit limit or limits. If you do not, you must still pay us. We may change your credit limit or limits at any time, without notice.

Promotional Credit Plans

We may offer special financing terms, such as deferred interest, waived interest, low APR or equal payment options. The Credit Plan or Plans will be subject to the terms of the offer and this Agreement.

Electronic Access

Applications (apps) on electronic devices (such as mobile wallets) can store your Card and be used to get credit under this Agreement. Such transactions are covered by this Agreement. Apps may have separate terms of use. We are not responsible for any consequences from your violation of those terms.

APRs and Interest Based on APRs

Review your Summary for the APRs that apply to your Account

Variable APRs

We add the applicable Margin specified in the Rate Information chart on the Summary to the Prime Rate to determine Variable APRs. Variable APRs increase or decrease when the Prime Rate changes but will not exceed any Maximum APR specified in the Rate Information chart.

Any APR change will take effect on the first day of the billing period that begins after the Prime Rate changes. Increased APRs will increase your interest charges and may increase your Minimum Payment.

Daily Balance Method (including current transactions)

We calculate interest for each Credit Plan each day by applying the applicable daily periodic rate to the daily balance. The daily periodic rate is the APR for the Credit Plan divided by 365.

We start with the beginning balance each day (including unpaid interest and fees).

We add new transactions and fees to the applicable Credit Plan. We add transaction fees to the same Credit Plan as the transaction. We add all other fees to the regular purchase Credit Plan.

We subtract new credits and payments from the applicable Credit Plan and make other adjustments to get the partial daily balance.

We multiply the partial daily balance by the daily periodic rate to get the daily interest.

We add the daily interest to the partial daily balance to get the daily balance. This results in daily compounding of interest.

We add all the daily interest to get the total interest for the Credit Plan for the billing period. For a Deferred Interest Credit Plan, this interest is deferred.

We round interest to the nearest cent.

Interest

Charging Interest: Interest begins on a transaction, fee or interest from the day added to the daily balance until paid in full.

How to Avoid Paying Interest on Regular Purchases (Grace Period): If you did not have a Previous Balance, or if you paid the New Balance on your previous statement by the Due Date on that statement, we will not charge interest on new regular purchases, or any portion thereof, paid by the Due Date on your current statement. If you have promotional Credit Plans and/or balance transfers, we may exclude some of those balances from the amount you have to pay in a billing period to keep your Grace Period. However, you must pay (i) any required minimum payment on such balances, (ii) the full amount of any Cash Advances and (iii) the full amount of any promotional Credit Plan that expires in that billing period.

You Could Lose Your Grace Period: If you do not pay your New Balance in full each billing period, then, depending on how we apply your payment, you may not get a Grace Period on new regular purchases. Once you lose your Grace Period, you can get it back by paying the New Balance (less any promotional Credit Plans and/or balance transfers as described above plus any interest charged up to the date the payment posts) in full for two billing periods in a row.

Waived Interest Credit Plan: We do not impose interest on plan balances during the promotional period. After the promotional period, any remaining balance is added to the regular purchase balance and is subject to interest at the then-current rate for regular purchases.

Deferred Interest Credit Plan: Interest accrues on plan balances from the transaction date. We do not impose that interest if you pay the balance in full by the end of the promotional period. After the promotional period, any remaining balance and interest from the transaction date is added to the regular purchase balance and is subject to interest at the then-current rate for regular purchases.

Payments

Payment Instructions

We credit payments in accordance with the terms on your statement. Review your statement for details.

Pay in U.S. dollars, in funds on deposit in the U.S. If you don’t, we may refuse your payment or charge you our costs to collect the funds.

How We Apply Payments

We apply payments up to the Minimum Payment at our discretion, which may result in balances at lower APRs being paid first and higher interest charges. Payments over the Minimum Payment will be applied in accordance with law.

Other Information

Default

You are in default if:

• you fail to comply with this Agreement or any other agreement with us or an affiliate;

• a bankruptcy or other insolvency proceeding is filed by or against you;

• we reasonably believe you are unable or unwilling to repay us;

• you give us misleading, false, incomplete or incorrect information or fail to give us any information we deem necessary.

Foreign Transactions

Currently, they use a government-mandated or wholesale rate. These procedures may change without notice.

The conversion rate you get may differ from the rate on the transaction or post date and from the rate our network provider gets. A third party may convert a transaction into U.S. dollars or another currency, using a rate they select, before sending it to our network provider.

For any transaction made or processed outside the U.S. or in a foreign currency, we charge a fee in the amount on the Summary.

Arbitration and Jury Trial Waiver

Key Provisions

Please review the following important provisions carefully. Pay special attention to Paragraphs:

• A: Jury Trial Waiver;

• C: Arbitration Provision;

• C.1: Right to Reject;

• C.6: Court and Jury Trials Prohibited; Other Limitations on Legal Rights; and

• C.7: Class Action Waiver.

A. Jury Trial Waiver

To the extent permitted by law, you and we waive any right to trial by jury in the event of a lawsuit arising out of or related to this Agreement. This jury trial waiver shall not affect the Arbitration Provision below (including the jury trial waiver contained therein). You and we each represent that this waiver is given knowingly, willingly and voluntarily.

B. Notice and Cure

Prior to bringing a lawsuit or initiating an arbitration that asserts a claim arising out of or related to this Agreement (as further defined below, "Claim"), the party asserting the Claim ("Claimant") shall give the other party ("Respondent") written notice of the Claim ("Claim Notice") and a reasonable opportunity, not less than 30 days, to resolve the Claim through good faith efforts of both parties. Any Claim Notice to you shall be sent to the address we have in our records (or any updated address you subsequently provide to us). Any Claim Notice to us shall be sent by mail to the address for Arbitration Claims on the Summary (or any updated address we subsequently provide). Any Claim Notice you send must provide your name, address and Account number and explain the nature of the Claim and relief demanded. You may only submit a Claim Notice on your own behalf and not on behalf of any other party. No third party, other than a lawyer you have personally retained, may submit a Claim Notice on your behalf. The Claimant must reasonably cooperate in providing any information about the Claim that the Respondent reasonably requests. Any statute of limitations applicable to the Claim described in the Claim Notice shall be tolled during the period between the date that the Claim Notice is sent by mail and the later of:

a. 60 days after receipt of the Claim Notice, or

b. 30 days after either Claimant or Respondent informs the other that good faith efforts to resolve the Claim informally have ceased.

A lawsuit or arbitration proceeding may not be commenced unless the Claimant has complied with this Notice and Cure provision. A court will have authority to enforce this Notice and Cure provision, including the power to enjoin the filing or prosecution of arbitrations without first complying with said provision. Unless prohibited by applicable law, the arbitration Administrator is without authority to accept or administer any arbitration proceeding unless the Claimant has complied with this Notice and Cure provision.

C. Arbitration Provision

Review this provision carefully. If you do not reject it in accordance with Paragraph C.1, Right to Reject, below, it will be part of this Agreement and will have a substantial impact on the way you or we will resolve any Claim you or we have against each other now or in the future.

1. Right to Reject

If you don’t want this Arbitration Provision (and any prior arbitration agreement between you and us ("Prior Arbitration Agreement")) to apply, you may reject it by mailing us a written rejection notice which gives your name, address, Account number and contains a statement that you (both of you, if more than one) reject the Arbitration Provision of this Agreement. The rejection notice must be sent to us at the address for Arbitration Rejection on the Summary. A rejection notice is only effective if it is personally signed by you and if we receive it within 30 calendar days after the date we first provide you with a credit card agreement or written notice providing you a right to reject this Arbitration Provision. Your rejection of this Arbitration Provision will not affect any other provision of this Agreement or your ability to obtain credit.

2. Parties

Solely as used in this Arbitration Provision (and not elsewhere in this Agreement), the terms “we,” “us” and “our” mean

a. the issuer of your Card named on the Summary and its successors and/or assigns, as well as any parent, subsidiary or affiliate of theirs and their employees, officers and directors (the “Bank Parties”); and

b. any other person or company that provides any services in connection with this Agreement if you assert a Claim against such other person or company at the same time you assert a Claim against any Bank Party.

3. Covered Claims

"Claim" means any claim, dispute or controversy between you and us that in any way arises from or relates to this Agreement, the Account, the issuance of any Card, any rewards program and/or any prior agreement or account. "Claim" includes disputes arising from actions or omissions prior to the date any Card was issued to you, including the advertising related to, application for or approval of the Account. "Claim" has the broadest possible meaning, and includes initial claims, counterclaims, cross-claims and third-party claims. It includes disputes based on contract, tort, consumer rights, fraud and other intentional torts, constitution, statute, regulation, ordinance, common law and equity (including any claim for individual injunctive or declaratory relief). "Claim" does not include disputes about the validity, enforceability, coverage or scope of this Arbitration Provision or any part thereof (including, without limitation, the prohibition against class proceedings, private attorney general proceedings and/or multiple party proceedings described in Paragraph C.7, Prohibitions Against Certain Proceedings (Class Action Waiver), Paragraph C.13, Severability, and/or this sentence); all such disputes are for a court and not an arbitrator to decide. However, any dispute or argument that concerns the validity or enforceability of the Agreement as a whole is for the arbitrator, not a court, to decide.

4. Starting an Arbitration

Arbitration may be elected by any party with respect to any Claim, even if that party has already initiated a lawsuit with respect to a different Claim. Arbitration is started by giving a written demand for arbitration to the other party. You and we will not choose to arbitrate any individual Claim you or we bring in small claims court or your or our state’s equivalent court. This means you or we may bring an action in small claims court without being subject to arbitration. Moreover, if an arbitration demand has been made within the jurisdictional limits of the applicable small claims court, you or we may instruct the arbitration Administrator to close the case because the dispute should be decided by a small claims court. However, if a Claim is transferred, removed or appealed from small claims court to a different court, or if any Claim brought in small claims court exceeds the small claims court limit or attempts to change an individual Claim into a class or other representative Claim, you or we will then have the right to demand arbitration.

5. Administrator

"Administrator" means the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), 120 Broadway, 21st Floor, New York, NY 10271, www.adr.org, or National Arbitration and Mediation (“NAM”), 122 East 42nd Street, Suite 803, New York, NY 10168, www.namadr.com, to be selected by mutual agreement of the parties. If the parties are unable to select an Administrator by mutual consent, the Administrator will be selected by a court with jurisdiction pursuant to Section 5 of the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 ("FAA"). The arbitrator will be appointed by the Administrator in accordance with the rules of the Administrator. However, the arbitrator must be a retired or former judge or a lawyer with at least 10 years of experience. Notwithstanding any language in this Arbitration Provision to the contrary, no arbitration may be administered by any Administrator that has in place a formal or informal policy that is inconsistent with the Class Action Waiver, without the consent of all parties to the arbitration.

6. Court and Jury Trials Prohibited; Other Limitations on Legal Rights

If you or we elect to arbitrate a Claim, you will not have the right to pursue that Claim in court or have a jury decide the Claim. Also, your ability to obtain information from us is more limited in arbitration than in a lawsuit. Other rights that you would have if you went to court may also not be available in arbitration.

7. Prohibition Against Certain Proceedings (Class Action Waiver)

If you or we elect to arbitrate a Claim:

a. neither you nor we may participate in a class action in court or in class-wide arbitration, either as a plaintiff, defendant or class member;

b. neither you nor we may act as a private attorney general in court or in arbitration;

c. absent the written consent of all parties, Claims brought by or against you may not be joined or consolidated with Claims brought by or against any other person; and

d. the arbitrator shall have no power or authority to conduct a class-wide arbitration, private attorney general arbitration or other representative arbitration.

8. Location and Costs

Any arbitration hearing that you attend must take place at a location reasonably convenient to you. The parties shall pay filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with the Administrator’s rules and applicable law. However, if we receive a written request personally signed by you, stating that you cannot afford to pay your portion of said fees, we will pay them for you. The parties shall also bear the fees and expenses of their own attorneys, experts and witnesses unless otherwise required by applicable law, this Agreement or the Administrator’s rules. Provided such an award is permitted by applicable law, the arbitrator may also allocate compensation, expenses, and administrative fees (which include filing and hearing fees) to any party upon the arbitrator’s determination that the party’s claim or counterclaim was filed for purposes of harassment or is patently frivolous.

9. Governing Law

This Arbitration Provision involves interstate commerce and is governed by the FAA, and not by any state arbitration law. The arbitrator must apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations and claims of privilege recognized at law. The arbitrator may award any remedy provided by the substantive law that would apply in an individual case if the action were pending in court (including, without limitation, punitive damages, which shall be governed by the Constitutional standards employed by the courts). At the timely request of either party, the arbitrator must provide a brief written explanation of the basis for the award.

10. Discovery

In addition to the parties’ rights to obtain discovery pursuant to the arbitration rules of the Administrator, either party may submit a written request to the arbitrator to expand the scope of discovery normally allowable under the arbitration rules of the Administrator. The arbitrator shall have discretion to grant or deny that request.

11. Result and Appeals

Judgment upon the arbitrator’s award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s decision is final and binding, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA and/or the rules of the Administrator. Any finding, award or judgment from an arbitration of any Claim shall apply only to that arbitration. No finding, award or judgment from any other arbitration shall impact the arbitration of any Claim.

12. Interpretation

This Arbitration Provision shall survive the repayment of all amounts owed under this Agreement, the closing of the Account, any legal proceeding and any bankruptcy to the extent consistent with applicable bankruptcy law. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between this Arbitration Provision and the applicable arbitration rules or the other provisions of this Agreement, this Arbitration Provision shall govern. This Arbitration Provision replaces any Prior Arbitration Agreement.

13. Severability

If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall nevertheless remain in force, subject to two exceptions. First, if a determination is made that the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, and that determination is not reversed on appeal, then the Arbitration Provision shall be void in its entirety. Second, if a court determines that a public injunctive relief Claim may proceed notwithstanding the Class Action Waiver, and that determination is not reversed on appeal, then the public injunctive relief Claim will be decided by a court, any individual Claims will be arbitrated, and the parties will ask the court to stay the public injunctive relief Claim until the other Claims have been finally concluded.

Your Billing Rights: Keep This Document For Future Use

This notice tells you about your rights and our responsibilities under the Fair Credit Billing Act.

What To Do If You Find A Mistake On Your Statement

If you think there is an error on your statement, write to us at the address for Billing Errors on the Summary

In your letter, give us the following information:

  • Account information: Your name and account number.
  • Dollar amount: The dollar amount of the suspected error.
  • Description of problem: If you think there is an error on your bill, describe what you believe is wrong and why you believe it is a mistake.

You must contact us:

  • Within 60 days after the error appeared on your statement.
  • At least 3 business days before an automated payment is scheduled, if you want to stop payment on the amount you think is wrong.

You must notify us of any potential errors in writing. You may call us, but if you do we are not required to investigate any potential errors and you may have to pay the amount in question.

What Will Happen After We Receive Your Letter

When we receive your letter, we must do two things:

1. Within 30 days of receiving your letter, we must tell you that we received your letter. We will also tell you if we have already corrected the error.

2. Within 90 days of receiving your letter, we must either correct the error or explain to you why we believe the bill is correct.

While we investigate whether or not there has been an error:

  • We cannot try to collect the amount in question, or report you as delinquent on that amount.
  • The charge in question may remain on your statement, and we may continue to charge you interest on that amount.
  • While you do not have to pay the amount in question, you are responsible for the remainder of your balance.
  • We can apply any unpaid amount against your credit limit.

After we finish our investigation, one of two things will happen:

  • If we made a mistake: You will not have to pay the amount in question or any interest or other fees related to that amount.
  • If we do not believe there was a mistake: You will have to pay the amount in question, along with applicable interest and fees. We will send you a statement of the amount you owe and the date payment is due. We may then report you as delinquent if you do not pay the amount we think you owe.

If you receive our explanation but still believe your bill is wrong, you must write to us within 10 days telling us that you still refuse to pay. If you do so, we cannot report you as delinquent without also reporting that you are questioning your bill. We must tell you the name of anyone to whom we reported you as delinquent, and we must let those organizations know when the matter has been settled between us.

If we do not follow all of the rules above, you do not have to pay the first $50 of the amount you question even if your bill is correct.

Your Rights If You Are Dissatisfied With Your Credit Card Purchases

If you are dissatisfied with the goods or services that you have purchased with your credit card, and you have tried in good faith to correct the problem with the merchant, you may have the right not to pay the remaining amount due on the purchase.

To use this right, all of the following must be true:

1. The purchase must have been made in your home state or within 100 miles of your current mailing address, and the purchase price must have been more than $50. (Note: Neither of these are necessary if your purchase was based on an advertisem*nt we mailed to you, or if we own the company that sold you the goods or services.)

2. You must have used your credit card for the purchase. Purchases made with cash advances from an ATM or with a check that accesses your credit card account do not qualify.

3. You must not yet have fully paid for the purchase.

If all of the criteria above are met and you are still dissatisfied with the purchase, contact us in writing at the address for Billing Errors on the Summary.

While we investigate, the same rules apply to the disputed amount as discussed above. After we finish our investigation, we will tell you our decision. At that point, if we think you owe an amount and you do not pay, we may report you as delinquent.
