We reserve the right to change the account terms (including APRs) at any time. If we change your terms for reasons other than when you paid late or go into default, we will notify you in writing. Customers with a good payment history are eligible for a reduction in their interest rate every twelve (12) months. See Credit Agreement for full details. A Credit Agreement along with the rates, fees, and terms of your account will be made available to you immediately upon approval of your application for credit.
Finance Charges:: Your Account will also be subject to the Finance Charges, each of which will be billed to your Account and added to your principal balance. Finance Charges are imposed whenever you obtain a cash advance, incur fees, or when a purchase is posted to your Account. You have the option to pay these fees in full when they are incurred, or pay them over time at your discretion. Finance Charges are imposed from the time a purchase, cash advance, or fee is posted, until it is paid in full.
Cash Advance Rate Information: The minimum monthly interest rate for cash advances in $49 per thousand dollars borrowed. For example:
$1000 borrowed = monthly payment of $49
$2000 borrowed = monthly payment of $98
$3000 borrowed = monthly payment of $147
The minimum monthly percentage rate that may be applied to your account is 4.9% per month. The maximum monthly percentage rate that may be applied is 8.9% per month. The actual rate, monthly payment amount and terms of your account will be explained to you by a credit specialist prior to funding, and will not be applied without your express written consent. Customers with a good payment history are eligible for a reduction in their interest rate every 12 months.
How Your Credit History Could Affect Your APR: We do not engage in a practice known as "universal default." Universal default permits a credit company to increase your APR to the Default APR solely because you fail to make a payment on a loan with another lender or your credit history contains negative information.
Computing Periodic Finance Charges:: The Finance Charge is determined by multiplying the "Average Daily Balance" for purchases and cash advances outstanding during the monthly billing cycle by the daily "Periodic Rate." The term "Cash Advance" means any cash advance obtained through an Fidelity One Secured Credit Card or Revolving Line of Credit account or through any participating affiliated automatic teller machine ("ATM") or any financial institution or other establishment authorized to process or grant cash advances and also includes, for purposes of computation of finance charges, fees incurred on your account that are not paid in full, Convenience Checks, and all other cash-equivalent transactions including, but not limited to, Balance Transfers, electronic funds or wire transfer orders, and other transactions with cash-equivalent merchants. The "Average Daily Balance" is computed by taking the beginning balance of your Account on each day, calculated separately for purchases and cash advances, adding new purchases, fees, and/or cash advances and subtracting any payments or credits to get each day's daily balance. The daily balances are then added together and divided by the number of days in the billing cycle to get the "Average Daily Balance." The minimum Finance Charge is $1 for each billing cycle during which a Finance Charge based upon a periodic rate is imposed.
