How We Will Calculate Your Balance: We use a method called "average daily balance (including new purchases, balance transfers and cash advances)".

Current Information: The information provided here is accurate as of 7/14 and is subject to change at any time without prior notice. To receive the most recent information, please write to BankCard Center, P.O. Box 1545, Memphis, TN 38101-1545.

Prime Rate: APRs may increase or decrease for each new billing cycle based on changes in the U.S. Prime Rate published in the "Markets Lineup" section of The Wall Street Journal ("Prime"). An increase in your rates will increase your finance charges and may increase your minimum monthly payment. Your rates will not exceed the maximum we are allowed to charge under applicable law. Each APR will equal the sum of Prime plus the applicable margin ("Margin"). Prime Rate was 3.25% as of 7/14.

Margin: Margin means the percentage points added to the Prime Rate to calculate the APR. The margin is 8.90%.

Eligibility: To be eligible for a FIRST Travel Card, you must have a minimum gross annual income of $35,000, a First Tennessee Bank checking account, and minimum household deposit balance(s) with FTB of at least $25,000.

Application of Payments: We will determine, at our discretion, the amount of and order in which minimum payments will be applied to Purchases, Balance Transfers, Cash Advances, Interest, Finance Charges and other fees and charges. If your account has balances with different APRs, we will allocate your minimum payments to balances subject to lower APRs before balances subject to higher APRs. If you make more than the minimum payment, we will allocate amounts in excess of the minimum payment to balances subject to higher APRs before balances subject to lower APRs, even if, as required by applicable law, this allocation results in a loss of any Grace Period for which you may otherwise have been eligible. This payment allocation method applies to all higher APR balances, including transactions subject to higher APRs posted since your last statement.

Effects of Making Minimum Payments: If you make only the minimum payment each billing cycle, you will pay more in interest and it will take you longer to pay off your balance.

*Annual fee may be waived if you maintain a qualifying account/relationship. See your Relationship Manager for more information.

**Only a payment made by us, at your request, via our customer service center or our website, to transfer all or part of your balance with another creditor to your account with us will be considered and treated as a balance transfer under this Agreement. Your use of a check is not considered a balance transfer under this Agreement.
