Visa SignatureŽ College Real Rewards Card Terms and Conditions
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.

We may change APRs, fees, and other Account terms in the future based on your experience with Elan Financial Services and its affiliates as provided under the Cardmember Agreement and applicable law.

We apply your minimum payment to balances with lower APRs first, including promotional APRs. Amounts paid over the minimum payment will be applied in the order of highest to lowest APR balances.

How Variable Interest Rates Are Determined: After the introductory period, your interest rate is a variable rate and is determined by a combination of the Prime Rate (which may vary) added to a margin (which does not change). Because the Prime Rate may vary, your variable interest rate will go up or down if the Prime Rate changes. If you are granted an Account, the following rates on the Account are variable: Non-Introductory Purchase Rate; Non-Introductory Balance Transfer Rate; Cash Advance Rate. More information is available in the Cardmember Agreement.

Notice to California Residents: An applicant, if married, may apply for a separate account.
Notice to Married Wisconsin Residents: No provision of any marital property agreement, unilateral statement under section 766.59 of the Wisconsin statutes or court decree under section 766.70, adversely affects our interest unless we, prior to the time the credit is granted or an open-end credit plan is entered into, are furnished a copy of the agreement, decree or court order, or have actual knowledge of the adverse provision. IF YOU ARE A MARRIED WISCONSIN RESIDENT, CREDIT EXTENDED UNDER THIS ACCOUNT WILL BE INCURRED IN THE INTEREST OF YOUR MARRIAGE OR FAMILY.
Notice to Ohio Residents: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.

Rewards Program Rules:
(a) Rewards Points. From the date you open your Account until your Account is closed, you will receive 1.5 Reward Points ("Points") for each dollar of Net Purchases charged to your Account during each billing cycle that the Account is open and current (account is not past due or overlimit) on the closing date for the billing cycle. The number of Points that may accumulate in any monthly billing cycle for your Account is unlimited. "Net Purchases" for a statement period are determined by totaling all new Purchases charged to the Account during the billing cycle, then subtracting credits posted to the Account during the billing cycle for returned Purchases and/or adjustments. If credits during a statement period exceed Purchases, the credit balance will be carried over to the following billing cycles and offset against future Purchases charged to the Account for purposes of awarding Points. We may round Net Purchases up or down to a whole dollar amount for purposes of determining and awarding Points. Points are not earned for Advances (including wire transfers, traveler's checks, money orders, foreign cash transactions, betting transactions, lottery tickets and ATM disbursements), Convenience Checks, Balance Transfers, and Fees, credit insurance charges, transactions to fund certain prepaid card products, U.S. Mint purchases, or transactions to purchase cash convertible items. We reserve the right to adjust or reverse the number of Points that were awarded for unauthorized Purchases. You may not redeem Points, and you will immediately lose all of your Points, if your Account is closed to future transactions (including, but not limited to, due to Program misuse, failure to pay, bankruptcy, or death). Points are nontransferable and have no cash value. Please allow up to 60 days after a Purchase for Points on that Purchase to post to your Points balance.

(b) Program Rules. Complete terms and conditions for the Rewards Program, (the "Program"), including rules regarding the redemption, expiration, loss or cancellation of Points, award thresholds, eligibility, participation, and our right to amend or terminate the Program, are set forth in our Rewards Program Rules (the "Program Rules") that are provided to you separately. The Program Rules will exclusively govern the terms of the Program and, with respect to the Rewards Program, to the extent the Program Rules conflict with the terms of this Cardmember Agreement or any other materials the Program Rules will control. We reserve the right to amend or cancel the Program or change Program benefits at any time with or without notice to you. Please review the Program Rules and FAQ online through the Rewards Center.
