How to Avoid Paying interest on Purchases

Your due date will be at least 21 days after the close of each billing cycle. If you pay your entire balance in full each month by the payment due date we will not charge you interest on new purchases. Cash advances and balance transfers incur interest from the date posted to your account.

Minimum Finance Charge

If any interest is assessed on your account the minimum amount of interest is $1.50 for each billing cycle.

More Information about Penalty Fees and Loss of Introductory Rates: If your Total Minimum Payment Due is not received by your Payment Due Date, a Late Payment Fee of $25 will be assessed; $35 for subsequent occurrences that are within 6 billing cycles of a previous occurrence. However, the Late Payment Fee will not exceed the total minimum payment that was due. A Returned Payment Fee of up to $35 will be assessed for any check returned as unpaid, whether it is a payment, balance transfer or cash advance check drawn against your line. We will not charge both a Late Payment and a Returned Payment fee if the returned payment causes your payment to be late. We may end your introductory APR and apply the Penalty APR if you miss or make a late payment. There is no grace period on Balance Transfers. This means that, unless your purchase APR is at an introductory or promotional 0% APR, you will pay interest on new Purchases from the date made if you take a balance transfer offer and do not pay it in full by the Payment Due Date.
