The “Card” means any credit card issued to you or those designated by you under the terms of this Agreement. “Use of the Card” means any procedure used by you, or someone authorized by you, to make a purchase or an advance whether or not the purchase or advance is evidenced by a signed written document. “Unauthorized use” means the use of your Card by a person, other than you, who does not have actual, implied, or apparent authority for such use, and from which you receive no benefit. In this Agreement, any plural terms shall be deemed singular and any singular terms shall be deemed plural when context and construction so require.
EXTENSION OF CREDIT: If your application is approved, we may, at our discretion, establish an Account in your name and cause one or more Cards to be issued to you or those designated by you. In such event, you authorize us to pay for yourAccount all items reflecting credit purchases, balance transfers, and cash advances obtained through use of the Card.
JOINT APPLICANT LIABILITY: If this Agreement is executed by more than one person, each of you shall be jointly and individually liable to us for all charges made to the Account, including applicable fees. In addition, you agree that each of you designates the other as agent for the purpose of making purchases extended under this Agreement and each use of yourAccount shall be an extension of credit to all. Notice to one of you shall constitute notice to all. Any joint cardholder may remove him/herself from responsibility for future purchases at any time by notifying us in writing. However, removal from the Account does not release you from any liability already incurred.
CONVENIENCE CHECKS: We may, at our discretion, issue checks to you which may be used for any purpose other than making a payment for credit to your Account. By signing such checks, you authorize us to pay the item for the amount indicated and post such amount as a cash advance to your Account. We do not have to pay any item which would cause the outstanding balance in your Account to exceed your credit limit. Charges that apply in connection with the use ofConvenience Checks are as follows: Copy of Paid Check $0.00; Stop Payment on Check $30.00; Non-Sufficient FundsCheck (NSF) $25.00. Fees will be assessed at the time they are incurred.
OTHERS USING YOUR ACCOUNT: If you allow anyone else to use your Card, you will be liable for all credit extended to such persons. You promise to pay for all purchases, balance transfers, and cash advances made by anyone whom you authorize to use your Card, whether or not you notify us that he or she will be using it. If someone else is authorized to use your Card and you want to end that person’s privilege, you must notify us in writing, and if he or she has a Card, you must return the Card with your written notice for it to be effective.
CREDIT LIMITS: You promise that payments we make for your Account resulting from use of the Card will at no time cause the outstanding balance of your Account to exceed your credit limit as established by us or as adjusted from time to time at our discretion.
PROMISE TO PAY: You promise to pay us in U.S. dollars for (a) all purchases, cash advances, and balance transfers made by you or anyone whom you authorize to use the Card or Account; (b) FINANCE CHARGES and other charges or fees; (c)collection costs and attorney’s fees as permitted by applicable law, and any costs incurred in the recovery of the Card; and (d)credit in excess of your credit limit that we may extend to you. At the end of each monthly billing cycle for which you have a balance on your Account, you will be furnished with a periodic statement showing (i) the “Previous Balance” (the outstanding balance in the Account at the beginning of the billing cycle), (ii) the amount of all cash advances, purchases, balance transfers, Over-the-Limit Fees, Late Charges, Annual Fees, FINANCE CHARGES, and other charges or fees posted to your Account during the billing cycle, (iii) the amount of all payments and credits posted to your Account during the billing cycle, and (iv) the “New Balance” which is the sum of (i) and (ii) minus (iii).
You agree to pay on or before the “Payment Due Date” shown on the monthly periodic statement the entire New Balance or aMinimum Payment equal to an amount which is at least 2% of the New Balance or $18.00, whichever is greater, plus any amount in excess of the credit limit established by us and any past due minimum payments. If the New Balance is less than$18.00, you agree to pay it in full. You may make extra payments in advance of the due date without a penalty, and you may repay any funds advanced, credit extended, or amount outstanding at any time without a penalty for early payment.Regardless of the amount of any extra payment during a given month, a monthly payment will be required the following month if a balance remains in your Account.
COST OF CREDIT: You will pay a FINANCE CHARGE for all advances made against your Account. FINANCE CHARGES for cash advances and balance transfers begin to accrue on the date of the advance. New purchases will not incur a FINANCE CHARGE on the date they are posted to your Account if you have paid the Account in full by the PaymentDue Date shown on your previous monthly statement, or if there was no previous balance.
VARIABLE RATE: The applicable periodic rate used to compute the FINANCE CHARGE is based on the “Index” which is the weekly average yield of U.S. Treasury Securities adjusted to a constant maturity of one year rounded to the nearest.05% and is subject to change every month. Any change will be effective on the first day of a calendar quarter. The new rate is calculated thirty (30) days prior to the date of change using the most recently announced or available Index. The ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE for any given billing cycle will be the Index plus 6.74%-14.74%. As of 07/2013, the daily periodic rate for your Account is 0.027369%-0.049287% and the corresponding ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE is9.99%-17.99%. An increase in the Index will result in an increase in the periodic rate which, in turn, may result in higher payments. In any event, the daily periodic rate shall never be less than a daily periodic rate with a corresponding ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE of 6.74%, and it shall never be greater than a daily periodic rate with an ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE of 18%.
The FINANCE CHARGE is figured by applying the periodic rate to the “Balance Subject to FINANCE CHARGE” which is the “Average Daily Balance” of your Account, including current transactions. The Average Daily Balance is arrived at by taking the beginning balance of your Account each day, adding in any new cash advances, and unless you pay your Account in full by the Payment Due Date shown on the previous monthly statement or there is no previous balance, adding in new purchases, and subtracting any payments or credits and unpaid FINANCE CHARGE. This gives us the daily balance. The daily balances for the billing cycle are then added together and divided by the number of days in the billing cycle. The result is the Average Daily Balance. The FINANCE CHARGE is determined by multiplying the Average Daily Balance by the number of days in the billing cycle and applying the periodic rate to the product.
No additional FINANCE CHARGES will be imposed on new purchases shown on your statement if the New Balance shown on the statement is paid in full by the Payment Due Date reflected on the statement. The Payment Due Date is not less than 25 days from the billing cycle closing date shown on your statement.
MASTERCARD/VISA: LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED USE: You may be liable for the unauthorized use of yourCard. You will not be liable for any unauthorized use of your Card if you notify us orally or in writing at the Credit CardCenter, PO Box 183258, Columbus, OH 43218-3258, telephone number 1-855-343-3819, of the loss, theft, or possible unauthorized use and you meet the following conditions: (1) you have exercised reasonable care with the Card; (2) you have not reported two or more incidents of unauthorized Card use within the previous 12 months; and (3) you have maintained your Account in good standing. The foregoing liability limitation does not apply to ATM cash advance transactions. In any case, your maximum liability for unauthorized use of the Card will not exceed $50 and you will not be liable for any unauthorized use that occurs after you notify us (or our designee) at the address or telephone number above.
CREDITING OF PAYMENTS: We do not charge for payments made by standard mail service or other standard payment methods approved by us. If we charge a fee for any expedited payment service we offer, that fee will be disclosed to you at the time you request the service. All payments made on your Account at the address designated for payment on the monthly periodic statement will be credited to your Account on the date of receipt. If the date of receipt is not a business day, your payment will be credited on the first business day following receipt. All payments on your Account will be applied first to collection costs, then to any FINANCE CHARGE and other fees due, and then to the unpaid principal balance. Interest paid or agreed to be paid shall not exceed the maximum amount permissible under applicable law, and in any contingency whatsoever, if we shall receive anything of value deemed interest under applicable law which would exceed the maximum amount of interest permissible under applicable law, the excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the unpaid principal amount or refunded to you.
LATE CHARGE: If a payment is 10 days or more past due, you will be charged a Late Charge of $25.00 or 5 % of the payment due, whichever is less.
RETURNED CHECK FEE: We will charge you a Returned Check Fee of $25.00 each time you pay us with a check that is returned unpaid. We will charge you this fee the first time any payment is returned unpaid, even if it is paid upon resubmission.

The currency conversion rate used by MasterCard International on the processing date may differ from the rate that would have been used on the purchase date or cardholder statement posting date.

If you effect an international transaction with your VISA Card, the rate of exchange between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing the international transaction will be a rate selected by VISA from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate VISA itself receives or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date; and in each instance, plus a 1% Foreign Transaction Fee .The Foreign Transaction Fee will apply to all international purchase, cash disbursement, and account credit transactions.6SW66 Variable Rate Credit Card Agreement and Disclosure
