++Your Telephone Numbers: By providing us with a telephone number(s), at the time you apply or anytime thereafter, you authorize us and our affiliates and agents, to contact you at that number about your account or other products or services, and to use an automated dialing service, pre-recorded message or text message. Standard text messaging and/or calling charges may apply.
About This Offer: You must be at least 18 years of age. This offer is available only to applicants who are residents of the United States, with the exception of Puerto Rico and the US territories, and may not be available if you already have or have had an account with us. If at the time of your application you do not meet the credit or income criteria previously established for this offer, or the income you report is insufficient based on your current obligations, we may be unable to open an account for you. Please review the materials provided with your card for details.
About Your Credit Report: You agree that we have a right to obtain a credit report in connection with our review of your application, and if we establish an account for you, to administer your account. You agree that we may report to others our credit experience with you. If you ask, we will tell the names and addresses of any credit bureaus from which we obtained a report about you.

For the non-promotional purchase and balance transfer APR, we add either 11.74%, 16.74% or 21.74% to the Prime Rate based on your creditworthiness.

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 to you: When you apply for an account, we will ask for your name, street address, date of birth, social security number, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see copies of identifying documents. We also ask for country of citizenship.
Balance Transfers. Here's How it Works: To request a balance transfer please enter the 15/16 digit account number from the Mastercard, Visa, American Express, or Discover Card account that you want us to process a balance transfer from. If the total amount you request exceeds the assigned credit line on your new account, we may either decline the request or send a partial payment to your creditor(s). The amount of available credit on your new account will be reduced by the amount transferred and the related balance transfer fees. We reserve the right to decline to process any requested balance transfer. We will not process a request to transfer a balance from any other account you may have with us. Balance transfers incur interest from the transaction date. You should not transfer the amount of any disputed purchase or other charge. If you do, you may lose your dispute rights.
Upon approval of your application we will process the requested balance transfer payment to the account(s) which you have requested on the 10th day after we've mailed you your card; during this 10 day time period you may cancel your balance transfer by contacting us at the number on the back of your card. A balance transfer may take up to 4 weeks to post to your other accounts. Continue to pay each creditor until the balance transfer appears on the other account as a credit. If you would like to complete a balance transfer from another account that is not a Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover Card account, please call the phone number on the back of your new credit card once you are approved. Balance transfers are subject to availability. We may deny balance transfer requests at any time and for any reason.
Avoiding Interest on Purchases: We will not charge you interest on any purchases if you pay your entire balance by the due date each month. In addition, during this introductory period we will not charge you interest on purchases if you pay by the due date each month your outstanding statement balance minus any new 0% introductory APR Balance Transfer balances. To avoid a late fee, you should pay at least the minimum payment due on your account each month.
Credit Limit: We do not permit applicants to request a specific credit limit. We do not consider a request for a balance transfer made with an application to be a request for a particular credit limit. We determine the credit limit on your account independent of and prior to processing any balance transfer request.
Cash Equivalent Purchases: The purchase of money orders, travelers' checks, foreign currency, lottery tickets, gambling chips, wire transfers and other similar transactions are treated as cash advances. Please see your Cardmember Agreement for details.
New York Residents: New York residents may contact the New York State Department of Financial Services by telephone (800) 342-3736, or visit the website, www.dfs.ny.gov, for free information on comparative credit card rates, fees and grace periods.
Notice to 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 Residents: No marital property agreement, unilateral statement or court decree under Wisconsin's marital property law will adversely affect our interests unless before your account is opened, you give us a copy of the agreement, statement or decree or we have actual knowledge of it. You understand that we may be required to give notice of this account to your spouse.

Capitalized terms not defined in these Reward Rules have the meaning ascribed to them in the Cardmember Agreement. Please read the Reward Rules and keep this document in a safe place.
The RCI Elite Rewards credit card is issued and administered by Barclaycard. These Reward Rules establish the terms and conditions associated with earning RCI Elite Rewards (“Reward” or “Rewards”) through use of the Card. The RCI Elite Rewards Program (“RCI Elite Rewards Program” or “Program”) is not a product or program of Barclaycard. The RCI Elite Rewards Program is provided by or through RCI, LLC ("RCI"), and administered by Augeo Consumer Engagement Services, LLC and its affiliates (collectively “Augeo”).
RCI is solely responsible for establishing the terms and conditions of your participation in the Program. Other restrictions apply.

The words "Reward" and "Rewards" which are mentioned throughout this piece refer specifically to Rewards earned through use of the RCI Elite Rewards Mastercard. These Rewards cannot be interchanged with points received or borrowed through the RCI Points program. The RCI Elite Rewards Mastercard program is a separate program and has no relationship in any way with the RCI Points program. There is no sponsorship, endorsement or approval of, or responsibility for this Program by independent retailers. All RCI Elite Rewards Program terms and conditions apply.
Reward Rules Administration
The Reward Rules are administered by Barclaycard. We reserve the right to modify, amend or terminate the Reward Rules at any time with or without notice. We are solely responsible for all credit eligibility standards and determination of Account issuance. To maintain your eligibility for participation in the Program through use of the Account:
- You must maintain an open Account that is not in default under your cardmember agreement with us.
- Your Account cannot have been inactive for 7 billing cycles in a row (representing approximately 7 months). “Inactive” means you have no balance, no payments and no transactions.
- You must be an individual (corporations, partnerships, and other entities may not participate) and use the Card only for personal, family or household expenses.
Important Information about Rewards
- For information regarding the terms of the RCI Elite Rewards Program, including the Rewards expiration policy, please visit https://rcieliterewards.rci.com/terms.php or contact the Reward Center at 877-587-8742.
- You have no property rights or other legal interest in Rewards. Rewards have no cash value or value of any kind until they are fully redeemed. Rewards may not be assigned, transferred or pledged.
- You are responsible for any tax liability related to participating in the Program.
- If you are not credited for earned Rewards or other benefits, once identified, the earned Rewards or other benefits will be credited. If Rewards or other benefits are not available, a comparable benefit will be provided as determined by us.
- In the event of any abusive, gaming or fraudulent activity related to the Account, as determined by us in our sole discretion, we reserve the right to make corresponding adjustments to the Rewards earned through the Program and/or to close your Account at any time. The Program is subject to all applicable laws and regulations. The redemption of Rewards is void where prohibited by law. The sale or barter of any Rewards earned through the Program, other than by us, is expressly prohibited.
Earning RCI Elite Rewards
You earn Rewards for retail purchases less credits, returns and adjustments (“Net Purchases”) made by you and/or any authorized user(s) of the Account.
Cardmember(s) earn "Rewards" in the following amounts based upon the type of purchase transaction charged to the Account:
a) Earn two (2) Rewards for every one dollar ($1) in Net Purchases made: (i) for room charges at participating properties listed online at RCIEliteRewards.RCI.com, (ii) at participating car rental locations, (iii) for purchases from any bonus rewards partner listed online at RCIEliteRewards.RCI.com, or (iv) for purchases with RCI (excluding RCI Travel), and/or (v) through special promotional allotments of Rewards from participating bonus rewards partners.
b) Earn one (1) Reward per one dollar ($1) spent on all other purchases.
Net Purchases for a billing cycle are determined by totaling all new purchases added to the Account during the billing cycle, and then subtracting credits posted to the Account during the billing cycle for returned purchases and/or adjustments. For purposes of reporting Net Purchases, Barclaycard may round up or down to the nearest whole dollar amount. If credits for returned purchases and/or adjustments exceed new purchases during a billing cycle, Barclaycard will calculate negative Net Purchases and reduce the primary cardmember’s accrued Rewards accordingly. Reward accumulation is subject to certain limitations, exclusions and restrictions. Barclaycard is not responsible for awarding Rewards under the RCI Elite Rewards Program, to arrange or provide for any goods or services related to the use of Rewards, for any delay, failure, or refusal by RCI or their assigns, to award or redeem Rewards, or for any decision by RCI to revoke or cancel Rewards or membership in the RCI Elite Rewards Program.
On the closing date of each billing cycle that your Account remains open and in good standing, Barclaycard will report to RCI the Net Purchases made using your Account during that billing cycle and request that RCI award Rewards. If your Account is not open or in good standing on the date a billing cycle closes, then Barclaycard will report no Net Purchases to RCI for that billing cycle. Barclaycard will ask that Rewards be awarded to the primary cardmember’s RCI Elite Rewards Program membership, regardless of whether the primary cardmember or an authorized user on the Account made the purchase.
Balance transfers, cash advances (including cash equivalent transactions such as, but not limited to, the use of your Card or Account number to obtain money orders, traveler’s checks, foreign currency and lottery tickets), fees, interest charges, and unauthorized/fraudulent transactions do not earn Rewards.
There is no limit to the total Rewards you can earn as long as the Program continues and the Account is open, active and in good standing.
Bonus Rewards on purchases at participating merchants
You may earn bonus Rewards on eligible purchases at participating merchants with your RCI Elite Rewards Mastercard. Bonus Rewards earnings will vary and are subject to change at any time. RCI is solely responsible for establishing the terms and conditions of bonus Rewards earned through participating merchants. Cardmembers can visit https://rcieliterewards.rci.com/terms.php for information on participating merchants, timing of when bonus Rewards are awarded, and Program terms and conditions.

Rewards may be redeemed for Reward items including certificates/cards/credits usable toward car rentals, hotel accommodations, and paying your RCI® Subscribing Membership cost and/or fees. Participating merchants and individual locations are subject to change. Rewards may also be redeemed for other Reward items such as airline travel Rewards (booking fee may apply).
