Smart Business Rewards Visa Signature® 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 payments to balances with lower APRs, including promotional APRs, before balances with higher APRs.

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 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.

We reserve the right to consider the applicant for a lower line of credit if one was requested.

The Business Owner and the Business shall be jointly and severally liable for all charges on the account. Each applicant understands and agrees that we may increase or decrease the APR or credit limit assigned to the Account and/or the Cards within the Account or close the Account at any time based on our credit guidelines, credit report information, Account history or the financial circumstances of the Cardmember. At the time the Account is opened, individual Employees, including the Business Owner, will be issued Cards and a Cardmember Agreement governing individual use of the Account and individual Employee Liability for charges to the account.

a) The Elan Rewards Program is subject to change.  Rewards are earned on eligible net purchases.  Net purchases are purchases minus credits and returns.  Not all transactions are eligible to earn rewards, such as Advances, Balance Transfers and Convenience Checks.  Upon approval, see your Cardmember Agreement for details.  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).

b) Earning Points You will earn 1 Point for every dollar in eligible net purchases charged to your Account during each billing cycle.  In addition, you will earn 1 additional bonus Point (for a total of 2 Points) for every dollar in eligible net purchases in your top two highest merchant spend categories ("Highest Categories") each billing cycle.  Highest Categories can change with each billing cycle, depending on your purchase behavior during a particular billing cycle.  Highest Categories automatically adjust to reward you on where you spend the most.  Some exclusions apply.  Please visit card.myaccountaccess.com/credit/visa-smart-business-rewards.do to see the full list of eligible merchant categories.  Merchants are assigned codes based on what they primarily sell.  Elan Financial Services cannot control how merchants choose to classify their business and reserves the right to determine which purchases qualify.  A purchase will not earn additional points if the merchant's code is not eligible.  Points expire five years from the end of the quarter in which they are earned.  A one-time 20,000 bonus points will be awarded after eligible net purchases totaling $500 or more are made to the Authorized Officer's Card within 90 days from account opening.  These bonus points will be awarded on your monthly billing statement.  Use of the Smart Business Rewards Card is subject to terms and conditions of the Cardmember Agreement, which may be amended from time to time.  This offer may not be combined with any other bonus offer.  Additional bonus points are earned only on Authorized Officer purchases.  Offer is subject to credit approval.

c) 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.  Points will be pooled to one Points balance at the Business level.  The individual, who executed the application for credit, will have the sole authority to redeem the pooled Points.  If the Points balance changes from pooled to individual, any unredeemed Points will stay pooled and will not transfer to the individual Points balance.
