Addendum to the Cardmember Agreement

This Addendum to the Cardmember Agreement reflects variations to our standard form credit card agreement in effect on the last business day of the previous calendar quarter that ended on 6/30/2022.  Our standard Cardmember Agreement(s) is supplemented with pricing information reflected in the document(s) titled “Pricing Supplement” and other terms and/or features that may vary between the different types of credit card accounts that we offer as reflected in the below “Addendum to the Cardmember Agreement”. These documents are provided to you for informational purposes only.  These account terms may not be available after the above date. If you apply and are approved for a credit card account with us, your actual account terms will be based on the terms of the offer available at the time that you applied and your Cardmember Agreement will be the agreement sent to you when your account is first opened.

The following provision is to be added at the end of the last sentence of the “Credit Line/Authorized Usage” paragraph in our standard Cardmember Agreement and is applicable to credit card accounts that do not have a preset spending limit:

“Because your Account has no pre-set spending limit, we may permit you from time to time at our discretion to make certain charges that cause your outstanding balance to exceed your revolving credit line.  These charges will be evaluated based on account performance, other credit accounts with us, and your experience with other creditors.  If we authorize these charges, you must pay, with your Minimum Payment Due, the amount by which your balance exceeds your revolving credit line, including amounts due to Purchases, Cash Advances, Interest charges, Fees, or other charges.”

The provisions describing how we calculate your balance subject to interest rate each month, accrual of interest and how to avoid paying interest on purchases may vary based on the account type that the applicant applied for and whether the applicant is a resident of Iowa.  The following two options contain the various provisions that could apply, and one of these options will be reflected in the Cardmember Agreement assigned at account opening:   

OPTION 1:

Daily Balance (Including New Transactions) Method.
We calculate interest separately for each type of balance (for example, Purchases at the current rate, Balance Transfers at the current rate, Cash Advances at the current rate, and different promotional balances, collectively “Type of Balance”). Your monthly billing statement shows each Type of Balance on your Account.

We calculate a daily balance for each Type of Balance each day. We start with the balance as of the end of the previous day. We add any interest calculated on the previous day’s balance. (This means interest is compounded daily). We add any new Purchases, Balance Transfers, or Cash Advances to the appropriate Type of Balance, subtract any applicable new payments or credits, and make other adjustments. A credit balance is treated as a balance of zero. We then multiply each daily balance by the applicable DPR. We do this for each day in the billing cycle to get the daily interest. The total of all the daily interest for all the daily balances equals the total interest for the billing cycle. If we charge interest, but the total interest is less than the Minimum Interest Charge (or “Minimum Charge”) we will charge you the Minimum Charge instead.

Grace Period on Purchases. You won’t pay interest on Purchases that are subject to interest (excluding Easy Pay Offers) if you pay those Purchases plus any monthly Easy Pay Payment Amount in full by the Payment Due Date shown on your statement each and every billing cycle (“Grace Period”). If you don’t pay your Purchases subject to interest (excluding Easy Pay Offers) plus any monthly Easy Pay Payment Amount in full by the Payment Due Date in a billing cycle, you’ll pay interest on those Purchases from the date they’re posted to your Account until the Purchases are paid in full.   When Purchases (excluding Easy Pay Offers) that were charged interest in a billing cycle are paid in full in the next billing cycle, the interest charges for that second billing cycle will include interest charged from the beginning of that billing cycle to the date the payment was received. Purchases that are enrolled into an Easy Pay Offer will be charged interest in accordance with the plan as disclosed at enrollment.

In addition, as more fully explained on your monthly Statement, each billing cycle, balances that are subject to promotional 0% APR Balance Transfer offers in the next billing cycle, balances that are subject to promotional 0% APR Purchase offers in the next billing cycle, Deferred Financing Purchase balances that do not expire in the next or the following billing cycle, and Easy Pay Offers are excluded from the amount you must pay in full each month to get a Grace Period on Purchases. However, even though we exclude these balances from the amount you must pay in full each month to get a Grace Period on other Purchases, you must still pay by the Payment Due Date any part of these balances that is included in the Minimum Payment Due.

There is no Grace Period on Balance Transfers and Cash Advances. This means you will pay interest on Balance Transfers and Cash Advances from the transaction date. For Balance Transfers, the transaction date is generally the day we send the Balance Transfer to the payee.

OPTION 2:

Average Daily Balance (Including New Transactions) Method (For Residents of Iowa at the Time of Account Opening)
We calculate interest separately for each Type of Balance (for example, Purchases at the current rate, Balance Transfers at the current rate, Cash Advances at the current rate, and different promotional balances). Your monthly billing statement shows each Type of Balance on your Account.

We calculate an average daily balance for each Type of Balance each billing cycle. We start with the balance for that Type of Balance as of the end of the previous billing cycle. We add any new Purchases, Balance Transfers, or Cash Advances to the appropriate Type of Balance, subtract any applicable new payments or credits, and make other adjustments. A credit balance is treated as a balance of zero. Then we take the sum of all the daily balances for that Type of Balance and divide by the number of days in the billing cycle to determine the average daily balance. We then multiply each average daily balance by the applicable MPR. This gives us the interest for that Balance Type that billing cycle. This amount is added to the applicable Type of Balance on the last day of the billing cycle. If you multiply the “Balance Subject to Interest Rate” for each Type of Balance disclosed on your monthly billing statement by the applicable MPR, the results will be the interest assessed, except for minor variations caused by rounding. If we charge interest, but the total interest is less than the Minimum Interest Charge (or “Minimum Charge”) we will charge you the Minimum Charge instead.

Grace Period on Purchases. You won’t pay interest on Purchases that are subject to interest (excluding Easy Pay Offers) if you pay those Purchases plus any monthly Easy Pay Payment Amount in full by the Payment Due Date shown on your statement each and every billing cycle (“Grace Period”). If you don’t pay your Purchases subject to interest (excluding Easy Pay Offers) plus any monthly Easy Pay Payment Amount in full by the Payment Due Date in a billing cycle, you’ll pay interest on those Purchases from the date they’re posted to your Account until the Purchases are paid in full.   When Purchases (excluding Easy Pay Offers) that were charged interest in a billing cycle are paid in full in the next billing cycle, the interest charges for that second billing cycle will include interest charged from the beginning of that billing cycle to the date the payment was received. Purchases that are enrolled into an Easy Pay Offer will be charged interest in accordance with the plan as disclosed at enrollment. 

In addition, as more fully explained on your monthly Statement, each billing cycle, balances that are subject to promotional 0% APR Balance Transfer offers in the next billing cycle, balances that are subject to promotional 0% APR Purchase offers in the next billing cycle, Deferred Financing Purchase balances that do not expire in the next or the following billing cycle, and Easy Pay Offers are excluded from the amount you must pay in full each month to get a Grace Period on Purchases. However, even though we exclude these balances from the amount you must pay in full each month to get a Grace Period on other Purchases, you must still pay by the Payment Due Date any part of these balances that is included in the Minimum Payment Due.

There is no Grace Period on Balance Transfers and Cash Advances. This means you will pay interest on Balance Transfers and Cash Advances from the transaction date. For Balance Transfers, the transaction date is generally the day we send the Balance Transfer to the payee.
