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 .08217% (APR 29.99%). 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 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 or returned 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:


$30, if you have paid your total minimum payment due by the due date in each of the prior six billing cycles.



$41, 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.

Returned Payment Fee

We will charge this fee if any check, other instrument, or electronic payment authorization you provide us in payment on your account, is not honored, returned unpaid or cannot be processed for any reason. This fee is equal to $30. The returned payment fee will not be more than the amount permitted by applicable law.

Minimum Payment Calculation
Your total minimum payment is calculated as follows.

The sum of:

  1. 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:
    1. $30; or
    2. 3.5% of the new balance shown on your billing statement; or
    3. The sum of 1% of your new balance shown on your billing statement plus interest and late payment fees charged in the current billing cycle; PLUS
  1. Any past due amounts; PLUS
  1. 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.



This Agreement. This is an Agreement between you and Synchrony Bank, 170 Election Road, Suite 125, Draper, UT 84020, for your credit card account shown above. By opening or using your account, you agree to the terms of the entire Agreement. The entire Agreement includes the four sections of this document and the application you submitted to us in connection with the account. These documents replace any other agreement relating to your account that you or we made earlier or at the same time.

Parties To This Agreement. This Agreement applies to each accountholder approved on the account and each of you is responsible for paying the full amount due, no matter which one uses the account. We may treat each of you as one accountholder and may refer to each of you as “you” or “your.” Synchrony Bank may be referred to as “we,” “us” or “our.”

Changes To This Agreement. We may change, add or delete terms of this Agreement, including interest rates, fees and charges.

Special Promotions. The terms of this Agreement apply to any special promotion. However, any special promotional terms that are different than the terms in this Agreement will be explained on promotional advertising or other disclosures provided to you.


Use Of Your Account. You may use your account only for lawful personal, family or household purposes. You may use your account for purchases from dealers/merchants/retailers that accept the card.

You Promise To Pay. You promise to pay us for all amounts owed to us under this Agreement.

Your Responsibility. Each accountholder will receive a card. You may not allow anyone else to use your account. If you do, or if you ask us to send a card to someone else, you will be responsible for paying for all charges resulting from their transactions.

Purchase Limits. To prevent fraud, we may limit the number or dollar amount of purchases you can make in any particular amount of time. We also may decline any particular charge on your account for any reason.

Credit Limit. You will be assigned a credit limit on your account that we may increase or decrease from time to time. If we approve a purchase that makes you go over your credit limit, we do not give up any rights under this Agreement and we do not treat it as an increase in your credit limit.


When Payments Are Due. You must pay at least the total minimum payment due on your account by 5 p.m. (ET) on the due date of each billing cycle. Payments received after 5 p.m. (ET) will be credited as of the next day. You may at any time pay, in whole or in part, the total unpaid balance without any additional charge for prepayment. If you have a balance subject to interest, earlier payment may reduce the amount of interest you will pay. We may delay making credit available on your account in the amount of your payment even though we will credit your payment when we receive it.

Payment Options. You can pay by mail, online or at certain dealers/merchants/retailers that accept the card and payments. We may allow you to make payments over the phone but we will charge you a fee to make expedited phone payments. Your payment must be made in U.S. dollars by physical or electronic check, money order or a similar instrument from a bank located in the United States.

How To Make A Payment. You must follow the instructions for making payments provided on your billing statement. If you do not, credit of your payment may be delayed up to five days. Your billing statement also explains how information on your check is used.

Payment Allocation. We will apply the required total minimum payment to balances on your account using any method we choose. Any payment you make in excess of the required total minimum payment will be applied to higher APR balances before lower APR balances. Applicable law may require or permit us to apply excess payments in a different manner in certain situations, such as when your account has a certain type of special promotion.


Using And Sharing Your Information. When you applied for an account, you gave us, dealers/merchants/retailers that accept the card and program sponsors information about yourself that we could share with each other. Dealers/merchants/retailers that accept the card and program sponsors (and their respective affiliates) will use the information in connection with the credit program and for things like creating and updating their records and offering you special benefits. More information about how we use and share information is set forth in the privacy policy for your account.

Address/Phone Change. You represent that any phone number that you provide to us belongs to you and/or that you are authorized to provide that number. You also agree to tell us right away if you change your address or any phone number.

Consent To Communications. You consent to us, as well as any other owner or servicer of your account, contacting you through any channel of communication and for any purpose, as permitted by applicable law. For informational, servicing, fraud, or collection related communications, you agree that we may use the phone numbers that you provide to us to contact your cellular phone or wireless device with text messages, artificial or prerecorded voice calls, and calls made by an automatic telephone dialing system. Text frequency may vary and may be recurring. This consent applies even if you are charged for the call under your plan.

We may close your account at any time, for any reason. If your account is closed, you must stop using it. You must still pay the full amount you owe and this Agreement will remain in effect until you do.

Collection Costs. If we ask an attorney who is not our salaried employee to collect your account, we may charge you our collection costs. These include court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees.

Credit Bureau Reporting. We may report information about your account to credit bureaus. Late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on your account may be shown in your credit report. Tell us if you think we reported wrong information about you to a credit bureau. Write to us at Synchrony Bank, P.O. Box 965036, Orlando, FL 32896-5036. Tell us what information is wrong and why you think it is wrong. If you have a copy of the credit report that includes the wrong information, send us a copy.

If you default or upon your death, we may (a) request payment of the full amount due right away, (b) take legal action to collect the amounts owed, and/or (c) take any other action allowed.

Disputed Amounts. The billing rights summary in section IV of this Agreement describes what to do if you think there is a mistake on your bill. If you send us correspondence about a disputed amount or payment, you must send it to the address for billing inquiries. We do not give up any rights under this Agreement if we accept a payment marked “payment in full” or given with any other conditions or limitations.

This Agreement has been accepted by us in Utah.

Waiver. We may give up some of our rights under this Agreement. If we give up any of our rights in one situation, we do not give up the same right in another situation.



  1. CLAIMS AND PARTIES. If either you or we make a demand for arbitration, you and we must arbitrate any dispute or claim between you (including any other user of your account), and us (including our parents, affiliates, agents, employees, officers, and assignees) that directly or indirectly arises from or relates to your account, your account Agreement or our relationship, except as noted below. In addition, dealers/merchants/retailers and/or any assignee, agent, or service provider of ours that collects amounts due on your account are intended beneficiaries of this Arbitration section and may enforce it in full (notwithstanding any state law to the contrary).
  2. This Arbitration section broadly covers claims, including counterclaims, based upon contract, tort, consumer rights, fraud and other intentional torts, negligence, constitution, statute, regulation, ordinance, common law and equity and claims for money damages and injunctive or declaratory relief, even if they arose before this section took effect. You may not sell, assign or transfer a claim.
  3. Examples of claims subject to arbitration are disputes about an account transaction, fees, charges or interest, the events leading up to the Agreement (such as any disclosures, advertisements, promotions or oral or written statements, warranties or representations made by us), an application for or denial of credit, any product or service provided by us or third parties in connection with the Agreement, credit reporting, benefit programs related to your account including any reward program, the collection of amounts due by our assignees, service providers, or agents and the manner of collection.
  4. However, we will not require you to arbitrate any individual case in small claims court or your state’s equivalent court, so long as it remains an individual case in that court. Also, even if all parties have opted to litigate a claim in court, you or we may elect arbitration with respect to any claim made by a new party or any claim later asserted by a party in any related or unrelated lawsuit, including modifying an individual claim to assert a class, representative or multi-party claim. Arbitration may be requested at any time, even where there is a pending lawsuit, unless a trial has begun, or a final judgment entered.
  5. Only a court will decide disputes about the validity, enforceability, coverage or scope of this Arbitration section or any part thereof. However, any dispute that concerns the validity or enforceability of the Agreement as a whole is for the arbitrator to decide.
  7. PROCEDURES. 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 either the American Arbitration Association (AAA), 120 Broadway, Floor 21, New York, NY 10271,, or JAMS, 620 Eighth Avenue, 34th Floor, New York, NY 10018,, to administer the arbitration. If neither administrator can handle the dispute, a court with jurisdiction will appoint an arbitrator.
  8. 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. The arbitrator must apply the same law, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), that would apply to an individual action in court, but may use different procedural rules. The arbitrator will apply the same statutes of limitation and privileges that a court would apply if the matter were pending in court.
  9. The arbitrator may award any damages or other relief or remedies that would apply under applicable law to an individual action brought in court, including, without limitation, punitive damages (governed by the Constitutional standards employed by the courts) and injunctive, equitable and declaratory relief (but only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim). The parties will bear the fees and costs of their attorneys, witnesses and experts. However, the arbitrator will have the authority to award fees and costs of attorneys, witnesses and experts to the extent permitted by the Agreement, the administrator’s rules or applicable law.
  10. The arbitration will take place by phone or at a location reasonably convenient to you. If you ask, we will pay all the fees the administrator or arbitrator charges if you cannot obtain a waiver of fees from the administrator and are acting in good faith. We will pay arbitration costs required by the administrator’s rules or that are necessary for this Arbitration section to be enforced. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will be required to advance half of all administrative fees and arbitrator’s fees (and to be responsible for payment of such fees to the extent not advanced) if you pursue arbitration as part of a group of similar arbitrations, or if you otherwise seek to participate in a mass arbitration proceeding. If an arbitration already in process is later determined to be part of a mass arbitration proceeding, we shall have the right to request that the arbitrator order you to reimburse us for fees already paid or advanced.
  11. GOVERNING LAW. This Arbitration section is governed by the FAA. Utah law shall apply to the extent state law is relevant under the FAA, unless otherwise stated herein. The arbitrator’s award 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. The arbitration award and any judgment confirming it will apply only to the specific case and cannot be used in any other case except to enforce the award.
  12. SURVIVAL. This Arbitration section shall survive the repayment of all amounts owed, the termination, cancellation or suspension of the Agreement or your account or credit privileges, any legal proceeding, and any bankruptcy by you, to the extent consistent with applicable bankruptcy law. If this Arbitration section conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules or the other provisions of the Agreement, this Arbitration section shall govern.
  13. SEVERABILITY. If any portion of this Arbitration section is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall nevertheless remain in force with the following two exceptions. First, if a determination is made that the “No Class Actions” provision is unenforceable, and that determination is not reversed on appeal, then this Arbitration section shall be void in its entirety. Second, if a court determines that a public injunctive relief claim may proceed notwithstanding the “No Class Actions” provision, and that determination is not reversed on appeal, then the public injunctive relief claim will be decided by a court, and any individual claims will be arbitrated. The parties will ask the court to stay the public injunctive relief claim until the other claims have been finally concluded.
  14. HOW TO REJECT ARBITRATION. You may reject this Arbitration section. If you do that, a court will resolve any dispute or claim. To reject this section, send us a notice within 45 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, account number, and personal signature, 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. Rejecting this Arbitration section will not affect any other provision of the Agreement. It will also not affect any prior arbitration agreement or dispute resolution provision between you and us, which will remain in full force and effect. If you don't reject this Arbitration section, it will be effective as of the date of the Agreement and will supersede any prior arbitration agreement between you and us that would otherwise be applicable.

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.


Rev. 3/17





Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.


The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include:

  • Social Security number and income
  • Account balances and payment history
  • Credit history and credit scores


All financial companies need to share customers’ personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies can share their customers’ personal information; the reasons Synchrony Bank chooses to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.

What we do

How does Synchrony Bank protect my

personal information?

To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.

How does Synchrony Bank collect my personal information?

We collect your personal information, for example, when you

  • open an account or give us your contact information
  • provide account information or pay your bills
  • use your credit card

We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus, affiliates, or other companies.

Why can’t I limit

all sharing?

Federal law gives you the right to limit only

  • sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes—information about your creditworthiness
  • affiliates from using your information to market to you
  • sharing for nonaffiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing. See below for more on your rights under state law.

What happens when

I limit sharing for an

account I hold jointly

with someone else?

Your choices will apply to everyone on your account.



Companies related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and nonfinancial companies.

  • Our affiliates include financial companies, such as Synchrony Financial and its subsidiaries, including Retail Finance Credit Services, LLC and CareCredit LLC.


Companies not related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and nonfinancial companies.

  • Nonaffiliates we share with can include the retailer named on your account and direct marketing companies.

Joint marketing

A formal agreement between nonaffiliated financial companies that together market financial products or services to you.

  • Our joint marketing partners include insurance companies.

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 nonaffiliates. 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 nonaffiliates.

*Please keep in mind that, as permitted by federal law, if you choose to limit our sharing of information with nonaffiliates, 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 credit program identified on your credit card agreement or credit card, including marketing of such program.

The above notice applies only to consumer credit card accounts 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.
