This is the Agreement that establishes the terms of your Cardholder Account (“Account”)
with 66 Federal Credit Union and its Divisions (“Credit Union”) including accounts
opened with us through other credit unions that participate in the Credit Union’s
VISA/MasterCard program and whose name may be on the face of your Card. Please read
it carefully and keep it for your records. You do not need to sign this Agreement,
but please be sure to sign the back of your Card if you have not
already done so.
All extensions of credit in connection with your Account
are being made by the Credit Union. Any use of your Card or Account confirms your
acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
In this Agreement, the word “you” and “your” refer
to each person (jointly and severally if more than one) who has applied for the
Account and any other person who has agreed to be responsible for the Account. The
words “we”, “us” and “our” refer to the Credit Union. “Card” refers to each Visa
and/or MasterCard that is issued on your account. The Card(s) must be returned or
surrendered to us or our agent upon request.
Using Your Account:
You may use your Card or Account to purchase
or lease goods or services or pay amounts you owe wherever the Card is honored or
transfer balances from other accounts. You may also use the Card to obtain cash
loans (“Cash Advances”) from any financial institution that accepts the Card or
at Automated Teller Machines (“ATM”) or by writing Convenience Checks. You agree
to accept credits to your Account instead of cash refunds when the original Purchase
was charged to your Account.
We may issue Convenience Checks to you, which may be used to access your credit
line. Use of a Convenience Check will be treated as a Cash Advance in the amount
on your check. Each Convenience Check will contain your Account number and may be
used only by the cardholders on the Account. Each must be completed and signed by
you (or either of you) in the same manner as a regular personal check. If we provide
Convenience Checks for your Account you may not use them to pay any amount you owe
under your Cardholder Agreement. Checks written for more than the available line
of credit or if the Account is not in good standing will not be honored and a fee
may be imposed (see Table of Charges).
Obligations On Your Account:
You authorize us to pay and charge
your Account for all Purchases and Cash Advances made or obtained by you or anyone
you authorize to use your Card or Account. You promise to pay us for all of these
Purchases and Cash Advances, plus any Finance Charges assessed on your Account and
any other charges and fees that you may owe us under the terms of this Agreement.
You will be obligated to pay authorized charges to your Account whether resulting
from (1) actual use of your Card or Convenience Checks (2) mail order or telephone,
computer or other electronic Purchases made without presenting the Card or (3) any
other circumstance where you authorize a charge, or authorize someone else to make
a charge, to your Account. Each person who is included within the definition of
the term “you,” above, is responsible to pay the full amount owed on the Account.
We may require that you pay in full the amount owed without first asking the other
person(s) to pay. All payments must be made in U.S. Dollars. Any payment made by
check or other negotiable instrument must be drawn on a U.S. bank or a U.S. branch
of a foreign bank. Subject to any mandatory provisions of applicable law, we will
apply your payments to the balances in your Account in whatever manner we determine.
You are responsible for charges made by yourself, your spouse and minor children.
You are also responsible for charges made by anyone else to whom you give the Card,
and this responsibility continues until the Card is recovered. You cannot disclaim
responsibility by notifying us, but we will close the Account for new transactions
if you so request and return all Cards. Your obligation to pay the Account balance
continues even though an agreement, divorce decree or other court judgments to which
we are not a party, may direct you or one of the other persons responsible to pay
Credit Line/Authorized Usage:
Your credit line is shown on the
folder containing your Card. Since we may change your credit line from time to time,
your credit line will appear on your monthly statement. You agree not to make a
Purchase or obtain a Cash Advance that would cause the unpaid balance of your Account
to exceed your credit line. We may honor Purchases and Cash Advances in excess of
your credit line at our sole discretion. If we do, this Agreement also applies to
that excess and you agree to pay the excess immediately if we request that you do
so. You agree that we may change or cancel your credit line at any time without
affecting your obligation to pay amounts that you owe under this Agreement. We may
designate that only a portion of your credit line is available for Cash Advances.
If we do and you exceed that limit, you will be considered to have exceeded your
credit line for all purposes of this Cardholder Agreement. For security reasons,
we may limit the number or dollar amount of Purchases, Cash Advance and/or Convenience
Check transactions that may be accomplished with your Card or Account, and we may
have the right to limit authorizations to make Purchases or obtain Cash Advances
if we consider it necessary to verify payments received to your Account.
We will send a statement at the end of each
monthly billing cycle in which your Account has a debit or credit balance. Among
other things, your monthly statement will show your New Balance, any Finance Charge,
your Credit Line and Available Credit, your Minimum Monthly Payment and the Payment
Due Date. You should retain copies of sales slips and/or documentation of transactions
to verify against your periodic statement.
Minimum Monthly Payment:
If the New Balance shown on your Monthly
Statement is less than $15, your Minimum Monthly Payment (due by the Payment Due
Date) is your New Balance. Otherwise, the Minimum Monthly Payment for each billing
cycle will be the greater of $15.00 or the total of (1) 2% of the New Balance, plus
(2) any amount past due, plus (3) if we so elect, any amount over your credit line
at the time of billing. You may pay more than the Minimum Monthly Payment and may
at any time pay the full amount you owe us.
We calculate the “balance subject to Finance Charge”
separately for Purchases and Cash Advances.
Method of Calculation:
Finance Charge is calculated on the average
daily balances of Purchases and Cash Advances in the Account. The principal balances
of Purchases and Cash Advances are determined each day during the statement period,
beginning with the principal portion of your previous balances, reduced by payments
you make and credit we apply and increased by Purchases and Cash Advances you make
and debit adjustments we make during the statement period. The daily principal balances
are totaled, and divided by the number of days in the statement period, to produce
separate average daily principal balances for Purchases and Cash Advances to which
the periodic rate is then applied. If we have “special” periodic rate offers in
effect from time to time, we will separately identify them on your monthly statement
and separately disclose on your monthly statement the balances to which the special
offers apply. These separate balances and the related Periodic Finance Charges will
be calculated in the same manner as described above.
For Cash Advances, we will add a Periodic Finance
Charge from the day you take the Cash Advance until the day we receive payment in
full. However, you have a grace period for Purchases. You will not pay a Periodic
Finance Charge on current or previous Purchases if you paid your New Balance in
full by the Payment Due Date on your previous statement (or that balance was zero
or a credit amount) and you pay your new balance in full by the Payment Due Date
on your current statement.
For Purchases and Cash Advances, we will add
a Periodic Finance Charge from the day you take the Cash Advance or Purchase until
the day we receive payment in full.
In addition to the Finance Charges discussed above,
the following charges may be applicable to your Account: Annual Fee: You agree to
pay us when billed each year an annual fee in the amount stated in the Table of
Charges for the privileges you have under this Agreement, whether or not you exercise
the privileges. Your payment of this fee will not affect any of your rights under
this Agreement, including our right to terminate your Account.
If we do not receive a payment from you for at least
the amount of your Minimum Monthly Payment by the Payment Due Date shown on your
monthly statement, we may charge you a late payment fee in the amount stated in
the Table of Charges. You will only be charged one late payment fee for any Minimum
Monthly Payment which is not paid by the Payment Due Date.
Return Check Fee:
If your financial institution does not honor
the check you gave us to pay amounts you owe under this Agreement, we may charge
you a return check fee in the amount stated in the Table of Charges.
If you request photocopies of sales slips or duplicate
copies of monthly statements, or if you request replacement Cards or any special
services such as obtaining Cards on an expedited basis, you agree to pay our reasonable
charges for such services. The present charges for such services are specified in
the Table of Charges. However, if you request items such as sales slips or duplicate
statements in connection with any disputed billing matter (see “Your Billing Rights”
on the back panel), we will not impose a fee if a billing error is disclosed. Unless
otherwise arranged between us, the annual membership fee and any late, return check,
or administrative fee will be added to your Account. Default/Collection Costs:
Your Account will be in default and we may demand immediate payment of the entire
amount you owe us without giving you prior notice if: (1) in any month we do not
receive your Minimum Monthly Payment by the Payment Due Date; (2) you make Purchases
or obtain Cash Advances in excess of your credit line; (3) you fail to comply with
this Agreement; (4) there is a filing for your bankruptcy; (5) you die or become
incapacitated; or (6) we believe in good faith that the payment or performance of
your obligations under this Agreement is impaired for any other reason. As permitted
by applicable law, you agree to pay all collection expenses actually incurred by
us in the collection of amounts you owe under this Agreement (including court costs
and the fees of any collection agency to which we refer your Account) and, in the
event we refer your Account after your default to an attorney who is not our regularly
salaried employee, you agree to pay the reasonable fees for such attorney. We will
not be obligated to honor any attempted use of your Account if a default has occurred
or we have determined to terminate your Account or limit your Account privileges
(as discussed below).
To secure your Account, you grant us a purchase
money security interest under the Uniform Commercial Code in any goods you purchase
through the Account as described on your credit card receipt. If you default, we
will have the right of recovery any of these goods that have not been paid for.
Pledge of Shares:
You hereby pledge your accounts and credits and
any additions to such accounts and credit that you have or hereafter may have in
this Credit Union as a security of any obligation to the Credit Union. This pledge
is given to secure the payment of all your Account obligations to us and interest
that may accrue thereon, attorney fees and costs (where federal law permits and
where federal law overrides prohibition of attorney fees by state law). You hereby
authorize us to apply any and all such monies pledged to the payment of said obligations.
This pledge shall not apply to Individual Retirement Accounts, Keogh Act Accounts
and accounts where the pledging of such accounts would invalidate such accounts.
Any security agreement given at this time for collateral shall be signed and made
a part of your file. When any additional security is needed in the future circumstances,
which we do not now foresee, such additional security will be taken only with your
written consent and a copy of the Security agreement will be furnished to you.
We may terminate your privileges under this Agreement
or limit your right to make Purchases or obtain Cash Advances at any time (and list
your Account in warning bulletins) without notice or liability. If we ask, you must
return your Cards and any unused Convenience Checks to us, cut in half. You agree
that you will not try to make a Purchase or obtain a Cash Advance after you have
been notified that your privilege to use your Account has been terminated. You may
terminate this Agreement at any time. If you do, you must return to us all Cards
and Convenience checks previously issued on the Account. If you call us, we may
require that you confirm your intent to terminate in writing. Your or our termination
will not affect your existing obligations under this Agreement or your liability
for all charges posted to your Account prior to the time all Cards and unused Convenience
Checks issued on your Account are returned to us.
We will send statements and any other notices to you at
the address shown in our files. You promise to inform us promptly in writing of
any change in your address. We may at our discretion accept address corrections
from the United States Postal Service.
Foreign Currency Transactions:
The exchange rate for international
transactions will be a rate selected by VISA or MasterCard from the range of rates
available in wholesale currency markets, which may vary from the rate VISA or MasterCard
receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing
Change in this Agreement:
We can change the terms of this agreement,
including the Annual Percentage Rate and any fees at any time. We will notify you
of the change. As permitted by applicable law, any change in this Agreement will
become effective at the time stated in our notice and unless we state otherwise,
the change will apply to all outstanding balances in your Account as well as to
You agree that we may request consumer credit
reports from one or more credit reporting agencies in connection with your application
and administration of your Account. You also authorize us to exchange credit information
concerning you or your Account with (and answer questions and requests from) others,
such as merchants and credit reporting agencies.
In the regular course of our business we may monitor
and record phone conversations made or received by our employees. You agree that
we will have such right with respect to all phone conversations between you and
our employees whether initiated by you or any of our employees.
Refusal to Honor Card:
We are not responsible for refusals to honor
your Card or Convenience Checks. And, except as otherwise required by applicable
law or regulation, we will not be responsible for merchandise or services purchased
or leased through use of your Account.
Irregular Payments and Delay in Enforcement:
We can accept late
payments, partial payments, checks and money orders “Paid in Full” or language having
the same effect without losing any of our rights under this Agreement. We can also
delay enforcing our rights under this Agreement any number of items without losing
them. The fact that we may at any time honor a Purchase or Cash Advance in excess
of your maximum credit line does not obligate us to do so again.
Unauthorized Use of Your Account:
If your Card, Personal Identification
Number (PIN) or Convenience Checks are lost or stolen or if you are afraid someone
may use your Account without your permission, you must notify us at once. You may
be liable for that unauthorized use of your Account. You will not be liable for
unauthorized use that occurs after your notify us. You can give us notification
of the loss, theft or unauthorized use of your Account by writing to us at P.O.
Box 1358, Bartlesville, OK 74005-1358 or verbally by calling us at (918) 336-7662
or (800) 897-6991. In any case, your maximum liability is $50.00. We may limit access
to your Account if you have notified us or we have determined that your Card, PIN,
Convenience Checks may have been lost or stolen, or that there may be unauthorized
access to your Account.
Inquiries or Questions:
You may address any inquiries or questions
which you have about your Account to us at P.O. Box 1358, Bartlesville, OK 74005-1358,
or you may call us (918) 336-7662 or (800) 897-6991. If you telephone us instead
of writing, you may lose certain rights the law gives you to dispute billing errors
(see “Your Billing Rights”) on the back panel.
Table of Charges
The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is a variable rate and will be disclosed on your
monthly statement along with the periodic rate. The Annual Percentage Rate for new
and existing balances may change the first day of January, April, July and October,
or anytime during the billing cycle. The Annual Percentage Rate for all new and
existing balances for Visa Classic, Visa Platinum and MasterCard is based on the
Credit Union’s Consumer Rate Index (CRI), which is the Credit Union’s three month
average Internal Cost of Funds rounded to the nearest one-quarter of one percent,
plus four percentage points (4.00%), plus four and one-quarter percentage points
(4.25%) for A, B & C credit; seven and one-quarter percentage points (7.25%) for
D credit; and ten and one-quarter percentage points (10.25%) for E credit. The maximum
APR will not exceed the rate permitted under the Federal Credit Union Act. The APR
may be adjusted upward based on individual credit standings, debt to income ratio
and aggregate credit score.

YOUR BILLING RIGHTS: KEEP THIS NOTICE FOR FUTURE USE
This notice contains important information about your rights and our responsibilities
under the Fair Credit Billing Act.
NOTIFY US IN CASE OF ERRORS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR STATEMENT/BILLING AT:
P. O. Box 31112
Tampa, FL 33631-3112
If you think your billing statement is wrong or if you need more information about
a transaction on your billing statement, write us on a separate sheet of paper and
mail to the above address which is also listed on your billing statement. Write
to us as soon as possible. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we
sent you the first billing statement on which the error or problem appeared. You
can telephone us, but doing so will not preserve your rights.
In your letter, give us the following information:
YOUR RIGHTS AND OUR RESPONSIBILITIES AFTER WE RECEIVE YOUR WRITTEN NOTICE
- Your name and account number.
- The dollar amount of the suspected error.
- Describe the error and explain, if you can, why you believe there is an error.
- If you need more information, describe the item you are unsure about.
We must acknowledge your letter within 30 days, unless we have corrected the error
by then. Within 90 days, we must either correct the error or explain why we believe
the bill was correct.
After we receive your letter, we cannot try to collect any amount you question,
or report you as delinquent. We can continue to bill you for the amount you question,
including finance charges, and we can apply any unpaid amount against your credit
limit. You do not have to pay any questioned amount while we are investigating,
but you are still obligated to pay the parts of your bill that are not in question.
If we find that we made a mistake on your bill, you will not have to pay any finance
charges related to any questioned amount. If we didn’t make a mistake, you may have
to pay finance charges, and you will have to make up any missed payments on the
questioned amount. In either case, we will send you a statement of the amount owed
and the date that it is due. If you fail to pay the amount we think you owe, we
may report you as delinquent. However, if our explanation does not satisfy you and
you write to us within 10 days telling us that you still refuse to pay, we must
tell anyone we report you to that you have a question on your bill. And, we must
tell you the name of anyone we reported you to. We must tell anyone we report you
to that the matter has been settled between us when it finally is.
If we don’t follow these rules, we can’t collect the first $50 of the questioned
amount, even if your bill was correct.
SPECIAL RULE FOR CREDIT CARD PURCHASES
If you have a problem with the quality of property or services that you purchased
with a credit card, and you have tried in good faith to correct the problem with
the merchant, you may have the right to not pay the remaining amount due on the
property or services. There are two limitations on this right:
a. You must have made the purchase in your home state or, if not within your home
state, within 100 miles of your current mailing address, and
b. The purchase price must have been more than $50.
These limitations do not apply if we own or operate the merchant or if we mailed
you the advertisement for the property or services.
