What is a Revolving Credit Card? A credit card with a designated credit limit that can be used over and over to make purchases at any location where the card is accepted. What are credit promotions: (aka “special promotional financing”)? There are numerous types of special promotional financing offers that may apply to specific transactions. Not all of these types are available at every merchant who accepts the card, or for all purchases within a merchant location. Please refer to the advertising or offer disclosures provided to you at the point of sale for further information about special promotional financing offer(s) that may be available for a particular purchase. The terms of your credit card account agreement apply to any purchase; however, any different terms for special promotional financing offers will be explained on advertising or other disclosures provided to you.

How Special Promotional Financing Offers Work
Note: For illustrative purposes, the information below assumes that the purchase is subject to the Special Promotional Financing Offer and is the only balance on your account during the promotional period.

Special Promotional Financing Offers

DEFERRED INTEREST (No interest if paid in full within promotional period)**
How are my monthly payments calculated?
• Minimum monthly payments, based on a percentage of your account balance or a minimum amount, are required in accordance with the standard account terms.
• It is very important to note that the required minimum monthly payments may or may not pay off your purchase by the end of the promotional period.
• If you want to ensure that your purchase is paid before the end of the promotional period (to avoid interest), you should schedule additional or larger payments accordingly.
How long will it take to pay off my purchase?
• There will be information on your billing statement about how long it will take to pay off your account if you only make minimum payments.
What is the Interest Rate and will it change?
• Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the promotional purchase balance is not paid in full within the promotional period.
• Although interest will accrue at the standard rate applicable to your account, it will only
be assessed and added to your account as a lump sum at the end of the promotional
period if the promotional purchase balance is not paid in full by the expiration date shown on your statement.
• To avoid paying interest, be sure to pay your promotional purchase balance by the expiration date.
How do I avoid paying interest or minimize the interest paid?
• Pay your promotional balance in full before the end of the promotional period to avoid interest.
• If you do not make a payment on time, you will be charged a late fee (see terms for details).

NO INTEREST (Equal Payments)**
How are my monthly payments calculated?
• The same equal payment amount is required monthly.
• The amount of the equal payment is calculated by dividing the purchase amount by the number of months in the promotional period.
How long will it take to pay off my purchase?
• If payments are made on time, the purchase will be paid off by the end of the promotional period.
What is the Interest Rate and will it change?
• No interest will be charged on the promotional purchase.
How do I avoid paying interest or minimize the interest paid?
• You do not have to pay interest on this type of promotion.
• If you do not make a payment on time, you will be charged a late fee (see terms for details).

REDUCED INTEREST RATE (Fixed Payments)**
How are my monthly payments calculated?
• The same fixed payment amount is required monthly.
• The payment amount is calculated based on the amount of your purchase, taking into account the interest rate that applies to the purchase and the length of the promotional period.
How long will it take to pay off my purchase?
• If payments are made on time, the purchase will be paid off at the end of the promotional period.
What is the Interest Rate and will it change?
• The interest rate for the promotional purchase is specified in the advertising and will not change.
How do I avoid paying interest or minimize the interest paid?
• Interest is charged from the purchase date and cannot be avoided.

Subject to the requirements and limitations of applicable law, we may change, add to or delete any of the terms of the agreement, including the interest rates, fees and charges and we will send you notice as required.

SECTION II: RATES, FEES AND PAYMENT INFORMATION

How Interest Is Calculated

Your Interest Rate
We use a daily rate to calculate the interest on the balance on your account each day. The daily rate for purchases is the APR times 1/365. The daily rate for purchases is .07395% (APR 26.99%). Interest will be imposed in amounts or at rates not in excess of those permitted by applicable law.

When We Charge Interest
We charge interest on your purchases from the date you make the purchase until you pay the purchase in full. See exceptions below.
• We will not charge you interest during a billing cycle on any non-promotional purchases if:
1. You had no balance at the start of the billing cycle; OR
2. You had a balance at the start of the billing cycle and you paid that balance in full by the due date in that billing cycle.
We always charge interest on promotional purchases and their related fees from the date you make the purchase.
• We will credit, as of the start of the billing cycle, any payment you make by the due date that we allocate to non-promotional purchases if:
1. You had no balance at the start of the previous billing cycle; OR
2. You had a balance at the start of the previous billing cycle and you paid that balance in full by the due date in the previous billing cycle.

How We Calculate Interest
We figure the interest charge on your account separately for each balance type. We do this by applying the daily rate to the daily balance for each day in the billing cycle. A separate daily balance is calculated for the following balance types, as applicable: purchases and balances subject to different interest rates, plans or special promotions. See below for more details on how this works.
1. How to get the daily balance. We take the starting balance each day, add any new charges and fees, and subtract any payments or credits. This gives us the daily balance. Debt cancellation fees, if any, and late payment fees are treated as new purchases.
2. How to get the daily interest amount. We multiply each daily balance by the daily rate that applies.
3. How to get the starting balance for the next day. We add the daily interest amount in step 2 to the daily balance from step 1.
4. How to get the interest charge for the billing cycle. We add all the daily interest amounts that were charged during the billing cycle.

We charge a minimum of $2.00 of interest in any billing cycle in which you owe interest. Interest, as calculated above, is added as applicable to each balance type. Minimum interest charges in excess of the calculated interest are treated as new purchases.

How Fees Work
Late Payment Fee
We will charge this fee if we do not receive the total minimum payment due on your account by 5 p.m. (ET) on the due date. This fee is equal to:
1. $27, if you have paid your total minimum payment due by the due date in each of the prior six billing cycles. OR
2. $38, if you have failed to pay your total minimum payment due by the due date in any one or more of the prior six billing cycles.
The late payment fee will not be more than the total minimum payment that was due.
Activation Fee
We will charge this fee once at the time the first purchase posts to your account.

Minimum Payment Calculation
Your total minimum payment is calculated as follows. The sum of:
a. For the new balance shown on your billing statement (excluding any balance attributable to a special promotional purchase with a unique payment calculation), the greater of:
(i) $35; or
(ii) 2.5% of your highest new balance since such balance was zero; or
(iii) $20 plus the interest and late payment fees charged in the current billing cycle; PLUS
b. Any past due amounts; PLUS
c. Any payment due in connection with a special promotional purchase with a unique payment calculation. We round up to the next highest whole dollar in figuring your total minimum payment. Your total minimum payment will never be more than your new balance.

RESOLVING A DISPUTE WITH ARBITRATION

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IF YOU DO NOT REJECT IT, THIS SECTION WILL APPLY TO YOUR ACCOUNT, AND MOST DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE SUBJECT TO INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. THIS MEANS THAT: (1) NEITHER A COURT NOR A JURY WILL RESOLVE ANY SUCH DISPUTE; (2) YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING; (3) LESS INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE; AND (4) APPEAL RIGHTS WILL BE LIMITED.
• What 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: (1) any individual case in small claims court or your state’s equivalent court, so long as it remains an individual case in that court; or (2) a case we file to collect money you owe us. However, if you respond to the collection lawsuit by claiming any wrongdoing, we may require you to arbitrate.
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
YOU AGREE NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION AGAINST US IN COURT OR ARBITRATION. ALSO, YOU MAY NOT BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ON BEHALF OF ANY ACCOUNTHOLDER WHO IS NOT AN ACCOUNTHOLDER ON YOUR ACCOUNT, AND YOU AGREE THAT ONLY ACCOUNTHOLDERS ON YOUR ACCOUNT MAY BE JOINED IN A SINGLE ARBITRATION WITH ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE.
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 Synchrony Bank, Legal Operation, P.O. Box 29110, Shawnee Mission, KS 66201-5320, ATTN: ARBITRATION DEMAND. The party seeking arbitration must select an arbitration administrator, which can be either the American Arbitration Association (AAA), 120 Broadway, Floor 21, New York, NY 10271, www.adr.org, 1-800-778-7879, or JAMS, 620 Eighth Avenue, 34th Floor, New York, NY 10018, www.jamsadr.com, 1-800-352-5267. 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. If you ask us to, we will pay all the fees the administrator or arbitrator charges, as long as we believe you are acting in good faith. 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.
• How to reject this section
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 Synchrony Bank, P.O. Box 965012, Orlando, FL 32896-5012. This is the only way you can reject this section.

NEW YORK RESIDENTS: A consumer credit report may be obtained in connection with evaluating your application and subsequently in connection with updates, renewals, or extensions of credit for which this application is made. Upon your request, you will be informed whether a report was obtained, and if so, of the name and address of the consumer reporting agency. This Agreement will not become effective unless and until you or an authorized user signs a sales slip or memorandum evidencing a purchase or lease of property or services or the payment of a fine by use of your credit card and prior thereto you will not be responsible for any purchase or lease of property or services by use of your credit card after its loss or theft.
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.

WISCONSIN RESIDENTS: No provision of a marital property agreement, a unilateral statement under sec. 766.59, Wis. Stats., or a court decree under sec. 766.70, Wis. Stats., adversely affects the interest of the creditor unless the creditor, prior to the time credit is granted, is furnished a copy of the agreement, statement or decree or has actual knowledge of the adverse provision when the obligation to the creditor is incurred. Married residents of Wisconsin applying for an individual account must give us the name and address of their spouse if the spouse also is a Wisconsin resident, regardless of whether the spouse may use the card.

YOUR BILLING RIGHTS SUMMARY
Your Billing Rights: Keep this Document for Future Use
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:
Synchrony Bank
P.O. Box 965035
Orlando, FL 32896-5035
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:
• 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.
• 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. Purchases made with cash advances from an ATM or with a check that accesses your credit card account do not qualify.
3. You must not yet have fully paid for the purchase.
If all of the criteria above are met and you are still dissatisfied with the purchase, contact us in writing at:
Synchrony Bank
P.O. Box 965035
Orlando, FL 32896-5035
While we investigate, the same rules apply to the disputed amount as discussed above. After we finish our investigation, we will tell you our decision. At that point, if we think you owe an amount and you do not pay, we may report you as delinquent.

Other important information
If your account has a California or Vermont billing address, you are automatically treated as if you have chosen to limit our sharing of information with affiliates and non-affiliates. If your account has a California billing address, we will not share information for joint marketing purposes with other financial companies. If your account no longer has a California or Vermont address, these special rules will stop applying and you will need to notify us if you want to exercise your right to restrict our sharing of information with affiliates or non-affiliates.

* Please keep in mind that, as permitted by federal law, if you choose to limit our sharing of information with non-affiliates, your choice will not prohibit us from sharing your information with dealers/merchants/retailers/contractors/providers (and their affiliates and program sponsors) that accept the credit card in connection with maintaining and servicing the consumer program identified on your credit card agreement or credit card, including marketing of such program.

The above notice applies only to the consumer credit card account with Synchrony Bank, as identified on your credit card agreement or credit card, and does not apply to any other accounts you have with us. It replaces our previous privacy notice disclosures to you. We can change our privacy policy at any time and will let you know if we do if/as required by applicable law.
