Is a Charge Card right for you?

What is a charge card?

A charge card allows you to manage and maximize your cash flow, because it has no pre-set spending limit. For the financially savvy consumer, a charge card makes good sense. Because your statement must be paid in full each month, many people find charge helps them control spending.

Purchasing Power

With a charge card, you are granted more purchasing power with no pre-set spending limit. While your spending is not unlimited, your purchases are approved based on a variety of factors, including your credit record, account history and personal resources. Proof of resources and security may be required.

Like many credit products, should you wish to make a purchase that goes beyond your usual spending patterns, please call the Customer Service number on the back of your Card to ensure a seamless experience.

If your spending continues to increase over the months, and your payments and credit record remain in good standing, you can achieve more spending power over time.
