|Rates & Disclosures
Annual Percentage Rate Visa:
7.75% APR as of 2010-02-16
Variable Rate Information: The interest will be set on a variable rate. We may increase or decrease the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) beginning with the first billing cycle of the next calendar quarter and the first billing cycle of each calendar quarter thereafter. Each date on which the rate may be changed by us is called "changed date." The rate applicable to this card will be based on an index. The APR shall equal the highest prime rate published in the Wall Street Journal "Money Rate" tables on the last date of publication in the calendar month preceding each change date plus a margin of 4.5 percentage points not to exceed the allowable usery ceiling. The minimum finance charge that will be imposed is $0.50. If we, on any change date, fail to increase the rate in accordance with the changes in the index, we will carry over and add any portion of that increase to any adjustment made on subsequent change dates.
In addition, there is a past due charge such that the sum of the underlying interest and this charge shall equal 18% per annum. It is applied in this fashion: should there be a failure to have the account current for two months, then the interest rate, not to exceed 18%, shall be imposed two months from that date and shall continue for a period of six months during which there is no past due of payment less than called for in the note of agreement, in which even the past due rate shall be removed and the underlying rate applied as long as you are current.
Grace Period: You have no less than 26 days to repay your balance for purchases before a finance charge on purchases will be imposed.
Method of Computing the Balance for Purchases:
Average daily balance (including new purchases).
Minimum Finance Charge: $0.50
No annual charge. Cash Advance charge is 3% of transaction amount with $10 minimum, $75 maximum. Foreign Transaction charge is up to 2%.
Late Payment Charge: Up to $35.00
Returned Payment Charge: $15
The information about the cost of the cards described in this application is accurate as of 2011-02-21. This information may have changed after that date.
Credit Card Security Tips:
Treat your card like cash; keep it in a secure location
Don’t lend your card or account number to anyone
Protect your PIN and keep that number separate from your card
Audit your sales receipts against your monthly statement and shred before discarding
Review monthly statements for accuracy and/or suspicious charges; contact RCU Cardholder Services immediately with any questions
Be wary of phone and online solicitations; never give account or personal information to anyone who has called or emailed you for that data
Notify RCU if you plan to travel and use your credit card outside of the United States
