On the first day after 12 billing cycles from account opening, your APR will revert to your approved rate, which will vary with the market based on the Wall Street Journal prime rate.
Rates range from 11.99% – 18.00%* based on credit worthiness and prime rate.
APR for Balance Transfers 1.99% introductory rate on balance transfers for the first 12 billing cycles after a new account is opened.

APR for Cash Advances The APR for cash advances is 11.99%-18.00%*
This APR will vary with the market based on the Wall Street Journal prime rate and is based on credit worthiness at the time of account opening.
Penalty APR and When It Applies

The penalty APR is 18.00%. This APR may be applied to your account if you:
( 1 ) Make a Late Payment
(2) Go Over Your Credit Limit
(3) Make a Payment that is Returned; or
(4) Do any of the above on Another Account You have with Us.
How Long will the Penalty APR Apply? If your APRs are increased for any of these reasons, the Penalty APR will apply until you make 6 consecutive minimum payments when due; and you do not again default on these conditions during this time.

Paying Interest

Your due date is at least 25 days after the close of each billing cycle. We will not charge you any interest on purchases or cash advances if you pay your entire balance by the due date each month. We will begin charging interest on cash advances and balance transfers on the transaction date.

Minimum Interest Payment If you are charged interest, the charge will be no less than $0.01.

Disclosures

*APR applicable to your account is determined by your credit worthiness based on your Equifax Beacon Score at the time of application. Variable Rate Feature: The Visa credit cards have a variable rate feature, meaning that the APR (corresponding to the periodic rate) and the term of your Visa loan may change due to interest rate fluctuations. The APR includes only interest and no other costs. Changes in prime rate will cause changes in the APR as of the first day of your account's billing cycle following an index change. In no case shall any APR be less than 11.99% or higher than 18.00% regardless of the applicable index and margin, unless specifically applicable laws and/or regulations require we use a lower APR.
