What Should I Put For Total Annual Income? You may include personal income, which is income you have earned, including full-time, part-time, or seasonal jobs, self-employment, interest or dividends, retirement, and public assistance.

If My Rate Is Increased To The Penalty Rate, Will It Ever Be Reviewed For A Possible Decrease? Yes, in this situation, we'll periodically review your account for a rate decrease.

How Do You Calculate My Variable Rates? Your variable rates may change each month if the Prime Rate changes. We calculate variable rates by adding a percentage to the Prime Rate published in The Wall Street Journal that is in effect on the 25th day of each month. If the Journal is not published on that day, then we will use the immediately preceding edition. Variable rates will be updated monthly and will take effect on the first day of your next Billing Cycle: Non-Introductory Purchase APR: Prime plus 9.65%, 15.65% or 19.49%; Non-Introductory Transfer APR: Prime plus 9.65%, 15.65% or 19.49%; Cash Advance APR: Prime plus 20.74%; Penalty APR: Prime plus 21.74%.

See the "How Do You Calculate The Interest Charge?" section.

How Do You Calculate My Minimum Payment? If your balance is less than $25, your minimum payment will be equal to your balance. Otherwise, your minimum payment will be the greater of $25 or 1% of your balance plus new interest and late payment fees. We will also add any past due amount to your minimum payment. If your Account charges off, the entire balance is due immediately.

What Will My Transfer Fee Be If I Transfer A Balance? Any transferred balance that posts to your account at an introductory or promotional APR that we may offer you will incur a 3% Transfer Fee. If you make a Transfer at the Purchase APR, that transfer will not incur a Transfer Fee.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS CARD

When Can I Request A Transfer? You may request a transfer 10 days after your account is opened. Your account may not always be eligible for Transfers. Transfer eligibility is determined by Capital One at our discretion. Transfers between Capital One accounts are not permitted. That means balances cannot be transferred to this account from any other credit card issued by Capital One including, but not limited to cards branded with, Bass Pro Shops CLUB, Cabela's, Kohl's, Sony, GM, BuyPower Card, Union Plus, and Teamster Privilege.

How Can I Avoid Paying Interest Charges? If you pay your Statement's "New Balance" in full by the due date, we will not charge interest on any new transactions that post to the purchase Segment. If you have been paying your Account in full without Interest Charges, but fail to pay your next "New Balance" in full, we will charge interest on the portion of the balance that you did not pay. For Cash Advances and Transfers, we will start charging interest on the transaction date. Certain promotional offers may allow you to pay less than the total new balance and avoid paying Interest Charges on new purchases.

How Do You Calculate The Interest Charge? We use a method called Average Daily Balance (including new transactions).

  1. First, for each Segment, we take the beginning balance each day and add in new transactions and the periodic Interest Charge on the previous day's balance. Then we subtract any payments and credits for that Segment as of that day. The result is the daily balance for each Segment.
  2. Next, for each Segment, we add the daily balances together and divide the sum by the number of days in the Billing Cycle. The result is the Average Daily Balance for each Segment.
  3. At the end of each Billing Cycle, we multiply your Average Daily Balance for each Segment by the daily periodic rate (APR divided by 365) for that Segment, and then we multiply the result by the number of days in the Billing Cycle. We add the Interest Charges for all Segments together. The result is your total Interest Charge for the Billing Cycle. If you do not pay in full the balance attributed to promotional item(s) purchased on a Same As Cash Credit Plan within the promotional rate period, your APR calculation will factor in the sum of all of the balances attributed to the promotional item(s) over the entire promotional rate period.

NOTE: Due to rounding or a minimum Interest Charge, this calculation may vary slightly from the Interest Charge actually assessed.

How Is The Interest Charge Applied? Interest Charges accrue from the date of the transaction or the first day of the Billing Cycle. Interest Charges accrue on every unpaid amount until it is paid in full. This means you may owe Interest Charges even if you pay the entire "New Balance" for one Billing Cycle, but did not do so the previous Billing Cycle. Unpaid Interest Charges are added to the corresponding Segment of your Account.

Are Unauthorized Use Claims Subject To Investigation And Verification? Yes.
