|IMPORTANT RATE, FEE AND OTHER COST INFORMATION
(Summary of Credit Terms)
How We Will Calculate Your Balance: We use a method called "average daily balance (including new purchases)".
Index And When It Is Determined: The Index used to determine your variable APRs is the highest U.S. Prime Rate as published in the "Money Rates" section of The Wall Street Journal during the 90 days immediately preceding the last day of each calendar month (the determination date). The above APRs are based on an Index (Prime Rate) of 5.50% as of the 12/31/2018 determination date. If the Prime Rate is higher or lower on a later determination date, the above APRs may increase or decrease accordingly.
When you become a cardmember, the Index will be effective for the entire billing cycle that ends in the second month after the determination date. For example, if your billing cycle ends in July, we will use the Index determined on the May determination date.
APR for Purchases and Balance Transfers: To determine the APR for purchases and balance transfers, we add a margin of 14.74% to the Index (Prime Rate).
APR for Cash Advances: To determine the APR for cash advances, we add a margin of 21.99% to the Index (Prime Rate).
How We Will Calculate Your Minimum Payment: The minimum payment shall be the LARGEST of (1), (2), or (3) listed below PLUS any amount that is past due on your account: (1) Your total New Balance IF it is LESS THAN $10; (2) The GREATER of (a) 2% of the entire New Balance; or (b) $10; OR (3) The SUM of (a) Your current cycle fees and finance charges; PLUS (b) 1% of the entire New Balance (to calculate this 1%, we will not count amounts in dispute or current cycle fees and finance charges as part of the New Balance). If your account is overlimit, we will add to the minimum payment the amount necessary to reduce your balance to your approved credit limit.
1 We will begin charging interest on cash advances and balance transfers on the transaction date.
Your account will generally have monthly billing cycles. However, your first billing cycle may be more or less than one month.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING CHANGES IN TERMS. We may change the APRs, rates, fees, costs, and other terms of your account subject to, and as allowed by, applicable law.
Payments on your account will be generally applied as follows: (a) the minimum payment amount will be applied to balances with the lowest APRs before balances with higher APRs; and (b) any amount you pay in excess of the minimum payment will be applied to balances with the highest APRs before balances with lower APRs.
BALANCE TRANSFERS: You authorize us to make each balance transfer you request. Each company you request us to pay and each balance transfer request may be treated as a separate balance transfer transaction. Each balance transfer is subject to our approval and we are not liable if we do not make any balance transfer you request. We reserve the right to make balance transfers in the order we select and to limit the amount of the balance transfers that we make (this amount may be less than your total credit limit). If you ask for a balance transfer and we do not approve the full amount, we may either pay only part of the amount you asked for or decline your request. You may not transfer balances from other accounts you have with us or our related companies. In addition, we may not process a balance transfer request if it is incomplete, illegible or written to cash. Each balance transfer is subject to applicable fees and finance charges and does not have the benefit of an interest-free (grace) period.
Please consider the following when asking for a balance transfer: (a) To protect your rights, you should not transfer any amount that you dispute, (b) you should continue to make all payments due on the other accounts until you receive notice from them that they have been paid in full, (c) you are liable for any late payments, finance charges or disputed amounts on your other accounts, and (d) if you want your other accounts closed following a balance transfer, you are responsible for doing so.
CREDIT REPORTS: By applying for this account, you agree that First Bankcard®, a division of First National Bank of Omaha may obtain credit reports for purposes of processing your application and for later purposes related to your account such as reviewing, updating and renewing it, increasing the credit line and collecting. If you request, you will be informed of whether or not a credit report was requested and of the name and address of the consumer reporting agency that furnished the report. You also authorize First Bankcard®, a division of First National Bank of Omaha to verify your employment, income and other relevant information.
NOTICE TO CARDMEMBERS AND AUTHORIZED USERS: We may report information about your account to credit bureaus. Late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on your account may be reflected in your credit report.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW 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, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.Married applicants may apply for separate accounts in their own names.
OHIO RESIDENTS: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.
NOTICE TO MARRIED WISCONSIN APPLICANTS: No provision of any marital property agreement, unilateral statement or court decree adversely affects our interests and/or rights unless, prior to the time the credit is granted or an open-end credit plan is entered into, we are furnished with a copy of the agreement, statement, or decree, or have actual knowledge of the adverse provision. Married Wisconsin residents applying for credit separately must furnish name and address of their spouse to First Bankcard®, a division of First National Bank of Omaha at P.O. Box 3437, Omaha, NE 68172-9981.
CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: The applicant, if married, may apply for a separate account. After credit approval, each applicant shall have the right to use this account to the extent of any credit limit set by the creditor and each applicant may be liable for all amounts of credit extended under this account to each joint applicant.
