How We Calculate Your Balance Subject to Interest Rate: We use a method called ”Daily Balance (Including Current Transactions)”. See your account agreement for more details.

Billing Rights: Information on your rights to dispute transactions and how to exercise those rights is provided in your account agreement.



This Cardholder Agreement contains the general terms and conditions that will govern your credit card account (the “Account”), and the credit card we issue for Account access (the “Card”), if we approve your application for an Account. The Account application you signed or otherwise submitted to us (including its federal and state notices), and any written materials we may provide with your Card or as a supplement or amendment to this Cardholder Agreement, are part of and incorporated into this Cardholder Agreement by reference (together, our “Agreement” with you).


In this Agreement, the words "you" and "your" mean each applicant (as an individual) and all applicants (as a group) shown on the Account application, and anyone else you authorize or permit to use your Account. The words "we," "us," and "our," mean First Electronic Bank, the financial institution that provides the Account and issues the Cards, and its assigns and successors. When the Agreement states that we “may” take

an action, this means that we are allowed and have the sole discretion to take that action, subject only to any limitations or notices expressly   required by law or this Agreement. You accept and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions in this Agreement, including its arbitration provision, the first time any of you use your Account.


Oral agreements or commitments to loan money, extend credit or to forbear from enforcing repayment of a debt, including promises to extend or review such debt, are not enforceable. To protect you (borrower(s)) and us (creditor) from misunderstanding or disappointment, any agreements we reach covering such matters are contained in this writing, which is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between us, except as we may later agree in writing to modify it.


1.  USE OF CARD: Subject to the terms and conditions in this Agreement, you may use your Account to purchase goods and services from the merchants and providers (each, a “Participant”) that have agreed to participate in the credit card program we provide with assistance from Dent-A- Med, Inc. d/b/a HC Processing Center. Before you attempt or agree to use the Account and Card to purchase any goods or services on credit from a Participant, you must notify the Participant that you intend to charge your purchase to your Card and obtain the Participant’s approval for the Card purchase. We will not extend Account credit to you for any purchase, unless you notified and obtained approval from a Participant for that purchase. We will not be liable to you if a Participant or any merchant refuses to honor your Account and Card for any purchase. The Participant will prepare and submit a charge slip to us for Account purchases or submit an Account charge to us electronically for payment.


2.  ACCOUNT BILLING STATEMENTS AND NOTICES; ADDRESS ON FILE: If you have a credit or debit balance on the Account of $1 or more at the end of any billing period, we will send a periodic Account statement (a “bill”) showing what you owe us as of the end of that billing period. We may not send you a bill, however, if we have decided your Account is uncollectible, if we have sent the Account for collection proceedings against you, or if the law does not require or permit us to send the bill. The billing period is the fixed period of time covered by the bill we send you. Each bill that we send will identify the billing period that it covers. The bill will show your new charges, including interest and fees, and any payments that posted to your Account during that period. It will also show you the minimum payment you must make to us by the due date shown on the bill. You agree to examine each bill and notify us immediately of any item you may dispute. The billing error rights notice in this Agreement and on your bills provide more information about how you may notify us about any disputed items or billing errors. We will mail or deliver your bill only to one address.

If your Account is a joint Account or more than one person is permitted to use the Account, you agree that we may send all Account bills and other Account notices solely to your address on file, as shown in our billing records. Your address on file is the address you provided in your Account application, unless: (a) we have received and processed a notice of a change in address that you provided in accordance with this Agreement or your most recent bill; or (b) we are notified by the U.S. Postal Service of an address correction for you and we decide, in good faith, to rely on the address correction notice we receive from the Postal Service. You agree to notify us immediately of any change in your mailing address, telephone numbers, or other contact information, such as your email addresses.


3.  BALANCE CATEGORIES: We put each charge on your Account, including interest and fees, into a balance category. We use the different balances to calculate the correct interest charges on your Account. If any type of charge is subject to a separate promotional interest rate, deferred interest, and/or reduced or deferred payment requirements (each, a “Promotional Balance”), we will put the Promotional Balance into a separate balance for the time period you qualify for the special promotional terms (“Promotional Terms”).


4.   AUTHORIZED USERS AND AUTHORIZED CHARGES: If you give your Card or Account number to another person, he or she is an authorized user. In addition, if we agree to issue a Card on this Account to another person at your request, he or she is an authorized user. An authorized charge is any charge you or any authorized user makes on the Account, and any fees and interest charges owing on the Account. Any charge made

by an authorized user is an authorized charge. This is true even if you told the authorized user not to make that specific charge. A charge will still be authorized, even if it causes your Account to exceed its credit limit, is an illegal transaction, or is made after your Account is closed. An authorized charge can be made over the telephone, in person, on the Internet, or in any other way your Account can be used.




A.   Promise to Pay: You agree to pay all authorized charges on each bill, including interest and fees. You agree to pay us for any charges that we allow over your Account credit limit. You promise to pay at least the minimum payment by the due date shown on each bill.


B.   Payment Due Date; Payment Requirements: The due date is the date by which we must receive your payment for it to be on time. Your bill lists the due date, which will fall on the same calendar day of the month. Your due date will be at least 21 days from the date we send you the bill and at least 25 days from the end of the most recently ended billing period. To be on time, we must receive your payment on or before the due date at the place and by the time stated on your bill. Unless a bill states a different place for payments, your payments must be sent to: HC Processing Center,

P.O. Box 268808, Oklahoma City , OK 73126 (regular mail); or HC Processing Center, 203 E. Emma Ave., Suite A, Springdale, AR 72764-4625 (overnight courier). Unless a bill states a different time, your payment is on time if we receive it by 5:00 p.m. Central Time on the due date. This 5:00

p.m. deadline is measured by the time zone in which we receive the payment, which may not be your time zone. If we do not receive or accept payments by mail on the due date, your payment will be on time if it is received by the next day that we accept or receive payments by mail.


You must pay in U.S. dollars. You must not pay in cash, unless you pay in person at one of our branches. Except for payments you make in cash at one of our branches, your payment must be drawn on a U.S. deposit account or by a cashier’s check drawn on a U.S. bank or a foreign bank branch in the U.S. You must not attach or include any restrictive language to your payment. Any check or money order you send that has restrictive words, conditions, limitations, or special instructions to us, including those marked with the words “paid in full” or similar language, must be mailed to: HC Processing Center, P.O. Box 829, Springdale, AR 72765-0829. If you make payment in a paper form (such as a check, money order, or cashier’s check), you must include the payment coupon from your bill or write your Account number on the payment. If we decide, in our discretion, to accept a form of payment that does not meet these payment instructions, you agree that we are not waiving our right to require you to make or continue making payments that comply with these instructions and are otherwise required by the Agreement. The credit available on your Account will be increased by the amount of your payment within 14 days after we receive your payment.


C.    Minimum Payment: The bill we send to you will state your due date and the minimum amount you must pay by that due date (your “minimum payment” or the “minimum payment due” in this Agreement and on your bill). If you do not pay the minimum payment by its due date, we may charge you a late payment fee. You will also be in breach of this Agreement. You may pay all or part of your Account balance at any time. However, for each bill, you must pay at least the minimum payment by the due date stated on the bill. If any Promotional Terms apply that modify the payment requirements with respect to a Promotional Balance, then those Promotional Terms will explain how we determine the minimum payment due with respect to these Promotional Balances.


As of the end of the billing period covered by the bill, we start by determining the amount that is the greater of: (i) the full unpaid balance of your Account (the “New Balance”), if this New Balance is less than $25.00; (ii) $25.00, if the New Balance is at least $25.00; (iii) 3.5% of the New Balance (excluding any Promotional Balances whose Promotional Terms make those Promotional Balances subject to different payment requirements); or (iv) the sum of 1.0% of the New Balance (excluding any Promotional Balances whose Promotional Terms make those Promotional Balances subject to different payment requirements), plus all interest charges, late payment fees, and returned payment fees then due for the Account. Then, we determine the minimum payment due for any Promotional Balances whose Promotional Terms modify the payment requirements for these Promotional Balances. Then, we determine whether there are any Account payments that are past due or balances that exceed the credit limit of your Account. Finally, we calculate your minimum payment due by adding together all of the amounts described in this paragraph and rounding the result up to the nearest whole dollar. If you pay more than the minimum payment due after the end of any billing period, you must still pay at least the minimum payment due after the end of each billing period after that.


D.    Payment Allocation: We choose which Account balances to pay with your minimum payment. We generally apply payments above the minimum payment to balances with the highest APRs first, except that we may apply the part of your payment that exceeds the minimum payment first to any deferred interest balances during the last two billing periods of a deferred interest period.


6.   TYPES OF CHARGES: There are two types of charges or “Plans” under your Account: you may make a purchase on (a) the Regular Plan or (b) a Promotional Plan. The standard provisions of this Agreement apply to all Promotional Plan transactions unless otherwise specified prior to or at the time of purchase under a particular Promotional Plan offering, and will continue to apply to any and all transactions that are not subject to a Promotional Plan. The following Promotional Plan may be offered from time to time as specified prior to or at the time of purchase: Deferred Interest Monthly Payment Plan If you pay the full cash sales price of the purchase by the promotional due date, as indicated on your billing statement, and pay the Minimum Payment Due when due each billing cycle, as indicated on your billing statement, no interest charges will be imposed on the purchase. If such payments are not so made, interest charges will be imposed from the purchase date.




A.   APRs Applied to Different Balances: The “annual percentage rate” or “APR” is an annualized interest rate. We use the APR that applies to each balance to calculate the interest charges that you owe us on the Account. Different APRs may apply to different balances on your Account, such as purchases subject to the standard APR and any qualifying purchases we may allow you to make subject to deferred interest or a promotional APR.


B.    Variable APRs: None of your Account APRs are variable, unless we specifically state that a variable APR applies in connection with a deferred interest or promotional APR program. Variable APRs increase or decrease based on changes in the Prime Rate. For the Prime Rate, we use the U.S. Prime Rate that The Wall Street Journal publishes on the Friday that follows the last Thursday of each month (the “Determination Date”). If The Wall Street Journal no longer publishes a prime rate, we will use a similar published rate that we choose as a substitute. Any increase or decrease to a variable APR based on a change in the Prime Rate will apply to your Account balances and purchases as of the first day of the billing period that begins after a Determination Date. Any increase in an APR that applies to your Account may cause an increase to your minimum required monthly payment.


C.    Standard APR:  The standard APR of 29.99% applies to your account (corresponding to a Daily Periodic Rate of 0.082164%).


D.    Use of Daily Balance Method With Compounding: We calculate the interest charges for each balance of your account by applying the “daily periodic rate” for that balance to the “daily balance” of that balance. We do this for each day in the billing period and add together the resulting interest charges. That gives us the total interest charges for that balance for that billing period. You agree that we may round interest charges to the nearest cent.


The “daily periodic rate” is a daily interest rate. The daily periodic rate for a given balance is equal to the APR for that balance divided by 365.


We calculate the “daily balance” for each balance. We do this by starting with the beginning amount of that balance for each day. We add any new purchases and Account fees for that day, add any interest on the previous daily balance if there is one in that billing period, and subtract any payments or credits. This gives us the “daily balance.” The addition of the prior day’s interest to the daily balance calculation causes interest to compound daily. We add all Account fees and minimum interest charges to the daily balance of purchases subject to the standard APR. Any daily balance that is less than zero will be treated as zero. Each “Balance Subject to Interest Rate” shown on your bill will be an average of the daily balances during the billing period for that balance.


E.   When Interest Charges Begin; Grace Period: The “New Balance” of your Account is the full unpaid balance of your Account that is outstanding as of the end of each billing period covered by each bill. As long as you continue to pay the New Balance every month by the due date listed on your bill, there will be a grace period on your Account purchases and we will not charge interest on those purchases. If you do not pay by the due date the New Balance that is outstanding as of the end of a given billing period, there will be no grace period and you will owe interest on the unpaid Account balances from the end of that billing period. After the end of that billing period, all charges will accrue interest from the date they were made. To take advantage of the grace period again, you must pay your New Balance in full, make no new purchases, and pay on time for as much as two billing periods in a row.


F.   Minimum Interest Charges: You must pay a minimum of $2.00 of interest after any billing period in which you owe any interest charges.


8.  FEES:


A.  Annual Fee: None.


B.  Returned Payment Fee: If your payment is returned unpaid to us for any reason, we will charge a $27.00 returned payment fee to your Account.


C.  Late Payment Fee: If you do not pay at least the minimum payment due by its due date, we will charge a $27.00 late payment fee to your Account. If you do not pay the minimum payments due by their due dates more than once during any six-month period, we will charge a $38.00 late payment fee to your Account. After that, your late payment fee will not return to $27.00, until you make at least the minimum payment due by its due date for six consecutive months.


D.  Additional Account Fees: We will charge additional fees to your Account for certain services that you may request in connection with your Account. The additional fees we may charge to your Account for Account services include, but are not limited to, the following: a $10.00 per page fee for copies of documents unrelated to a billing error; a $5.00 fee to issue a replacement Card; a $19.95 expedited payment fee each time you request expedited assistance from our live customer service representative or agent to make an automated payment of your Account; and a $15.00 expedited service fee each time you request expedited assistance from us for reasons other than completing an Account payment (for example, to request an Account balance or payoff letter from us within three business days). You may contact us at 877-486-3442 at any time with questions about these and other Account services, or to request a schedule of other Account fees that we may require for particular services that are not listed here.


9.  CREDIT LIMIT: We will establish a credit limit for your Account. You agree that you will not use or permit others to use your Account to obtain credit if it would cause the outstanding balance of your Account to exceed its credit limit. However, we may, at our option, without waiving any of our rights, permit charges to your Account, even if those charges would cause your outstanding Account balance to exceed its credit limit. We will not assess a fee if we elect to honor charges that cause your Account to exceed its credit limit.


10.  ENTIRE BALANCE DUE: If you break your promises under this Agreement, you understand and agree that we may demand that you pay the entire outstanding balance of your Account at once, subject to any legally required notices and limitations of applicable law. We may also do this if you made any false or misleading statements on your application, if you become insolvent or are subject to bankruptcy proceedings, or if you die, to the extent permitted by and in accordance with applicable law.


11.  COLLECTION COSTS: To the extent permitted by law, you promise to pay all of the costs we incur to collect your Account, including reasonable and allowable attorney’s fees.


12.  JOINT ACCOUNTS: If this is a joint Account, each of you is responsible as an individual and all of you are responsible as a group for all amounts that are owed in connection with the Account. Each of you is responsible, even if the Account is used by only one of you. You will continue to be   liable for the entire balance of the Account, even if your co-applicant or co-borrower is ordered by a court to pay us. You will remain liable to us if your co-applicant or co-borrower fails to pay as ordered by the court. Your Account status will continue to be reported to the credit bureau under each

of your names. The delivery of Account notices or bills to any of you serves as delivery of those notices and bills to all of you. We may rely on and comply with instructions given by any of you with respect to the Account. We are not liable to any of you for relying on or complying with instructions given by any of you.


13.  NOTICES, CHANGES OF ACCOUNT INFORMATION, AND METHODS OF CONTACT: We can include numbers and addresses from which you contact us as numbers you provide. We may obtain address corrections from the US Postal Service and telephone numbers and other contact information from third party sources. You agree to pay any fees or charges for which you may become responsible as a result of our attempts to communicate with you and we will not reimburse you for such costs. You authorize us or third parties acting on our behalf to contact you at numbers you provide.  This includes attempts to contact you on cellular phones and you agree that we can use automatic dialers and leave pre-recorded messages. You also authorize us to send emails to an email address at which we have reason to believe you can be reached. We can make such calls, within the confines of applicable law, for purposes that include, but are not limited to, gathering information, providing service, collecting on your Account, or investigating suspected fraud or identity theft.


14.  INVALIDITY: If one or more provisions of this Agreement are declared invalid or unenforceable by a court or arbitrator with jurisdiction, you and we agree that the remaining conditions and terms will not be affected.


15.  CHANGING OUR AGREEMENT: Subject to notice requirements and limitations of applicable law, we may change the terms of this Agreement at any time, and the new terms that apply to your Account will take effect on the day we specify. If the law requires us to notify you in a certain way, or limit the effect of any change in Account or Agreement terms, we will comply.


16.  AUTHORIZATION FOR RELEASE OF CREDIT INFORMATION: We may report information about your Account to credit bureaus. Late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on your Account may be reflected in your credit report.


17.  ASSIGNMENT: We have the right to assign and transfer any amounts you owe us in connection with the Account and any of our rights under this Agreement. We assign this Agreement if we sell or pass to a third party any or all of our rights or obligations under the Agreement, including any amount that you owe under the Agreement. Depending on what we may assign, any party to which we assign this Agreement will enjoy all our rights under the Agreement, including the contractual rights to collect amounts you owe on the Account. You cannot assign or transfer this Agreement or any of your rights or duties to anyone else.


18.  LOST OR STOLEN CARDS; LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED USE: If you notice the loss or theft of your Card or a possible unauthorized use of your Card, you should write to us immediately at HC Processing Center, PO Box 829, Springdale, AR 72765-0829, or call us at 877-486-3442.  You will not be liable for any unauthorized use that occurs after you notify us. You may, however, be liable for unauthorized use that occurs before your notice to us. In any case, your liability will not exceed $50.


19.  CANCELLATION: We may cancel your Account at any time. If cancelled, you promise to destroy all Cards immediately. We may terminate or modify all or any part of your Card privileges at any time. You have the right to close your Account to future purchases at any time, if you send a written cancellation notice to: HC Processing Center, P.O. Box 829, Springdale, AR 72765-0829. Even if you close your Account to future purchases, you must pay all outstanding amounts on the Account and your Account will remain subject to interest and fees as provided in this Agreement until it is paid in full.


20.  INFORMATION SHARING: You authorize us to share information about you as permitted by law. This includes information we get from you and others. It also includes information about your transactions with us. Please see our Privacy Notice for details about our information sharing practices.


21.  GOVERNING LAW: This Agreement and all transactions under it will be governed by the laws of the State of Utah, which are expressly adopted to control all Account transactions, without regard to choice of law principles.



  What claims (including initial claims, counterclaims, cross-claims and third-party claims) are subject to arbitration

1.  If either you or we make a demand for arbitration, you and we must arbitrate any dispute or claim between you or any other user of your account, and us, our affiliates, agents and/or dealers/merchants/retailers that accept the card or program sponsors if it relates to your account, except as noted below.

2.  We will not require you to arbitrate any individual case in small claims court or your state’s equivalent court, so long as it remains an individual case in that court.

3.  Notwithstanding any other language in this section, only a court, not an arbitrator, will decide disputes about the validity, enforceability, coverage or scope of this section or any part thereof (including, without limitation, the next paragraph of this section and/or this sentence). However, any dispute or argument that concerns the validity or enforceability of the Agreement as a whole is for the arbitrator, not a court, to decide.

  No Class Actions


If a court determines that this paragraph is not fully enforceable, only this sentence will remain in force and the remainder will be null and void, and the court’s determination shall be subject to appeal. This paragraph does not apply to any lawsuit or administrative proceeding filed against us by a state or federal government agency even when such agency is seeking relief on behalf of a class of borrowers, including you. This means that we will not have the right to compel arbitration of any claim brought by such an agency.

  How to start an arbitration, and the arbitration process

1.  The party who wants to arbitrate must notify the other party in writing. This notice can be given after the beginning of a lawsuit or in papers filed in the lawsuit. Otherwise, your notice must be sent to HC Processing Center, PO Box 829, Springdale AR 72765-0829, ATTN: ARBITRATION DEMAND. The party seeking arbitration must select an arbitration administrator, which can be either the American Arbitration Association (AAA), 1633 Broadway, 10th Floor, New York, NY 10019,, (800) 778-7879, or JAMS, 620 Eighth Avenue, 34th Floor, New York, NY 10018,, (800) 352-5267. If neither administrator is able or willing to handle the dispute, then the court will appoint an arbitrator.

2.   If a party files a lawsuit in court asserting claim(s) that are subject to arbitration and the other party files a motion with the court to compel arbitration, which is granted, it will be the responsibility of the party asserting the claim(s) to commence the arbitration proceeding.

3.  The arbitration administrator will appoint the arbitrator and will tell the parties what to do next. The arbitrator must be a lawyer with at least ten years of legal experience. Once appointed, the arbitrator must apply the same law and legal principles, consistent with the FAA, that would apply in court, but may use different procedural rules. If the administrator’s rules conflict with this Agreement, this Agreement will control.

4.  The arbitration will take place by phone or at a reasonably convenient location. We will always pay arbitration costs, as well as your legal fees and costs, to the extent you prevail on claims you assert against us in an arbitration proceeding which you have commenced.

  Governing Law for Arbitration

This Arbitration section of your Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA). Utah law shall apply to the extent state law is relevant under the FAA. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding, except for any appeal right under the FAA. Any court with jurisdiction may enter judgment upon the arbitrator’s award.

  Pre-Dispute Resolution Procedure

Before you or we bring any dispute or claim, the complaining party shall give the defending party: (1) a claim notice providing at least 30 days written notice of the claim and explaining in reasonable detail the nature of the claim and any supporting facts; and (ii) a reasonable, good-faith opportunity to resolve the claim on an individual basis without the necessity of any proceeding. If you are the complaining party, you must send any claim notice to us at HC Processing Center Legal Department at PO Box 829, Springdale, AR 72765-0829. If we are the complaining party, we will send the claim notice to you at your address appearing in our records or, if you are represented by an attorney, to your attorney at his or her office address. If the complaining party and the defending party do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the claim notice is received, the complaining party may commence arbitration subject to the terms of this Arbitration section of your Agreement. No settlement demand or settlement offer may be used in any proceeding as evidence or as an admission of any liability or damages.

  Special Payment

If: (i) you submit a claim notice in an arbitration on your own behalf (and not on behalf of any other party) and comply with all of the requirements of this Arbitration section of your Agreement; (ii) we refuse to provide you with the money damages you request; and (iii) the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the latest money damages you requested at least ten days before the date the arbitrator was selected, then we will pay you the amount of the award or $7,500, whichever is greater, in addition to the attorneys' fees and expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) to which you are otherwise entitled. We encourage you to include all claims you have in a single claim notice and/or a single arbitration. Accordingly, this $7,500 minimum award is a single award that applies to all claims you have asserted or could have asserted in the arbitration, and multiple awards of $7,500 are not contemplated under this Arbitration section of your Agreement.



You may reject this Arbitration section of your Agreement. If you do that, only a court may be used to resolve any dispute or claim. To reject this section, you must send us a notice within 60 days after you open your account or we first provided you with your right to reject this section. The notice must include your name, address and account number, and must be mailed to HC Processing Center Legal Department. PO Box 829, Springdale, AR 72765-0829. This is the only way you can reject this section.


This notice tells you about your rights and our responsibilities under the Fair Credit Billing Act.

What To Do If You Find A Mistake On Your Statement

If you think there is an error on your statement, write to us at: HC Processing Center, PO Box 802, Springdale, AR 72765-0802.

In your letter, give us the following information:

·         Account information: Your name and account number.

·         Dollar amount: The dollar amount of the suspected error.

·         Description of Problem: If you think there is an error on your bill, describe what you believe is wrong and why you believe it is a mistake. You must contact us:

·         Within 60 days after the error appeared on your statement.

·         At least 3 business days before an automated payment is scheduled, if you want to stop payment on the amount you think is wrong. You must notify us of any potential errors in writing. You may call us, but if you do we are not required to investigate any potential errors and you may have to pay the amount in question.

What Will Happen After We Receive Your Letter When we receive your letter, we must do two things:

1.        Within 30 days of receiving your letter, we must tell you that we received your letter. We will also tell you if we have already corrected the error.

2.        Within 90 days of receiving your letter, we must either correct the error or explain to you why we believe the bill is correct.

While we investigate whether or not there has been an error:

·         We cannot try to collect the amount in question, or report you as delinquent on that amount.

·         The charge in question may remain on your statement, and we may continue to charge you interest on that amount.

·         While you do not have to pay the amount in question, you are responsible for the remainder of your balance.

·         We can apply any unpaid amount against your credit limit.

After we finish our investigation, one of two things will happen:

1.        If we made a mistake: You will not have to pay the amount in question or any interest or other fees related to that amount.

2.        If we do not believe there was a mistake: You will have to pay the amount in question, along with applicable interest and fees. We will send you a statement of the amount you owe and the date payment is due. We may then report you as delinquent if you do not pay the amount we think you owe.

If you receive our explanation but still believe your bill is wrong, you must write to us within 10 days telling us that you still refuse to pay. If you do so, we cannot report you as delinquent without also reporting that you are questioning your bill. We must tell you the name of anyone to whom we reported you as delinquent, and we must let those organizations know when the matter has been settled between us. If we do not follow all of the rules above, you do not have to pay the first $50 of the amount you question even if your bill is correct.

Your Rights If You Are Dissatisfied with Your Credit Card Purchases

If you are dissatisfied with the goods or services that you have purchased with your credit card and you have tried in good faith to correct the problem with the merchant, you may have the right not to pay the remaining amount due on the purchase. To use this right, all of the following must

be true:

1.        The purchase must have been made in your home state or within 100 miles of your current mailing address, and the purchase price must have been more than $50. (Note: Neither of these are necessary if your purchase was based on an advertisement we mailed to you, or if we own the company that sold you the goods or services.)

2.        You must have used your credit card for the purchase.

3.        You must not yet have fully paid for the purchase.
