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 4.25% as of the 10/31/2017 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 9.74%, 11.74% or 16.74% 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).

1 We will begin charging interest on cash advances and balance transfers on the transaction date.

Please Note: Your account generally will have monthly billing cycles, except that your first billing cycle may be more or less than one month. All credit terms, including minimum finance charges, will apply in each billing cycle including the first billing cycle.

You understand that the terms of your account, including the APRs, are subject to change. IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING CHANGES IN TERMS. We reserve the right to unilaterally change the rates, fees, costs, and other terms at any time for any reason subject to applicable law.

Payments on your account may be applied in the order we select, subject to applicable law. Any amounts paid in excess of the required minimum payment will be applied first to your balances with the highest Annual Percentage Rate and then to your other balances in descending order based on their applicable Annual Percentage Rates.

BALANCE TRANSFERS: You authorize us to make one or more of the balance transfers that you have requested. All balance transfer requests are subject to our approval; we are not liable if we do not make a requested balance transfer. 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 request an amount that we do not approve, we may process a partial transfer for less than you requested or we may decline the entire request. In addition, transfer requests that are incomplete, illegible or requested to cash, to yourself or to another account with us or one of our affiliates need not be processed. You should not transfer any amount that is in dispute in order to preserve your dispute rights. You should continue to monitor the other accounts that you request to transfer balances from and you should continue to pay the minimum payments due on those accounts until you receive statements from those creditors showing that the balances due them have been paid in full. This may not happen until after the balance transfer appears on your billing statement from us. You are liable for any late payments, finance charges or disputed amounts on your other accounts. If you want your other accounts closed following a balance transfer, you are responsible for doing so. Balance transfers are subject to applicable fees and finance charges and do not have the benefit of a grace period.

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 credit 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.

MINIMUM PAYMENT: You may pay all or a part of the balance on your account at any time. However, you must pay at least the minimum payment by the due date shown on your billing statement. The minimum payment will be indicated on your billing statement. If your New Balance is less than $35, the minimum payment will be equal to your New Balance. If your New Balance is $35 or greater, the minimum payment will be the greater of (a) 2% of the New Balance or $35, whichever is larger; or (b) the current cycle fees and finance charges plus 1% of the New Balance (excluding current cycle fees and finance charges). Your minimum payment will also include any amount (i) past due and (ii) necessary to reduce your balance to your credit limit. Calculations will exclude disputed amounts.

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.

ARBITRATION NOTICE: You understand that any Cardmember Agreement you receive will contain an arbitration provision that may substantially limit your rights in the event of a dispute, including your right to litigate in court or have a jury trial, discovery and appeal rights, and the right to participate in court or in arbitration as a representative or member of a class action. You may request arbitration rules and forms through either or both of the following arbitration administrators: American Arbitration Association, 1-800-778-7879; and National Arbitration Forum, 1-800-474-2371.

NET PURCHASES: "Net Purchases" are authorized, new purchases posted to the Account on or after your Enrollment Date, excluding refunds, credits (for returned merchandise or otherwise), and disputed billing items. Points may be deducted for awards based on purchases that are subsequently subject to a refund, credit or dispute. Net Purchases do not include: (a) annual fees, finance charges and other fees or charges posted by us to the Account; (b) cash advances (including but not limited to cash received over the amount of Purchases charged to the Account, purchases of money orders or other cash equivalents) or special check transactions; (c) balance transfers; (d) charges for other products, services, or benefits that we provide (such as credit insurance premiums); or (e) other transactions that we determine not to be eligible. We are solely responsible for determining which transactions are eligible for point earnings and our determination is final.

"NFIB Membership Purchases" are Net Purchases made by National Federation of Independent Business members to pay their National Federation of Independent Business annual membership dues.

"Business Expense Purchases" are Net Purchases made at any merchant whose merchant category code ("MCC") is classified by the payment card industry as "Telecommunication Equipment and Telephone Sales" (MCC 4812), "Special Telecom Merchants" (MCC 4813), "Computer Network/Information Services" (MCC 4816), "Electric, Gas, Sanitary and Water Utilities" (MCC 4900), "Office and Commercial Furniture" (MCC 5021), "Photographic, Photocopy, Microfilm Equipment and Supplies" (MCC 5044), "Computer and Computer Peripheral Equipment and Software" (MCC 5045), "Commercial Equipment (Not Elsewhere Classified)" (MCC 5046), "Advertising Services" (MCC 7311), "Computer Maintenance and Repair Services, Not Elsewhere Classified" (MCC 7379), "Management, Consulting, and Public Relations Services" (MCC 7392), "Telecommunication services" (MCC 4814), "Cable and other pay television" (MCC 4899), "Stationery, Office Supplies, Printing, and Writing Paper" (MCC 5111), or "Stationery Stores, Office and School Supply Stores" (MCC 5943).

The MCC is a four-digit code used by the payment card industry to classify a merchant's primary business. You might expect some merchants to be classified into one of the MCCs identified above, but they may not be classified as such. This could affect whether transactions you make with such merchants will qualify as an NFIB Purchase, Business Expense Purchase or Net Purchase and, as a result, whether you will earn points on such transactions. We do not assign MCCs to merchants nor are we responsible for confirming or monitoring the MCC assignments made by the payment card networks.

We reserve the right to determine, in our sole discretion, whether any transaction qualifies as an NFIB Membership Purchase, Business Expense Purchase or Net Purchase, and our determinations shall be final.

POINTS: With regard to the points earned under the Program, point awards are not earned until they show on the Account statement. We reserve the right to retroactively correct errors made in point awards. At our sole discretion, we may award you additional bonus points in connection with certain purchases and/or promotions. Additional details and additional terms and conditions will be provided with such offers and are in addition to these Terms and Conditions unless otherwise specified therein. We reserve the right to determine which NFIB Purchases, Business Expense Purchases or Net Purchases are eligible for bonus points. There may be a limit to the number of bonus points that you can earn in connection with certain purchases and/or promotions.

Business card arrangements with multiple cardholder Accounts earn points at the individual Account level, but businesses may elect to set up the Accounts so that points can be awarded and redeemed at a certain, designated Account level.

REWARDS: Once you become a cardmember and if the Account is in good standing, you can use your points to obtain the Rewards as stated above. Point redemption may be subject to shipping, handling or other fees. Complete details on Rewards and point redemption are available through our Rewards Service Center and Rewards website.

CASH BACK IN THE FORM OF A STATEMENT CREDIT: Only points can be used to redeem for cash back. Cash back is redeemable in denominations of $25, $50, $100, and $250. Cash back in the form of a statement credit will be applied to the Account that is designated by the company Program Administrator for those businesses that elect to set up point earnings and redemptions to be done at a certain, designated Account level. To set up a designated Account to which cash back statement credits can be applied, the company Program Administrator needs to contact the Commercial Card Client Servicing team once an Account is opened for assistance. Any points redeemed for cash back in the form of a statement credit are treated as an additional payment on the designated Account. You are still required to make your regular monthly Account payments as indicated on your monthly statements.

If the Account does not remain in good standing, you will not earn future points, cannot redeem points, and you will forfeit any accumulated points previously awarded. An Account is in good standing when no event has occurred that allows us to require immediate payment of your entire balance under the Cardmember Agreement, including, without limitation, failing to make the minimum payment when due, having a payment to us denied, providing us false or misleading information, and violating the Cardmember Agreement or any other agreement with us. Closing the Account (by you or by us) will result in the termination of your enrollment in the Program and any accumulated points will be forfeited. We may change or terminate the Program in our discretion at any time with or without prior notice to you.
