Declaration of Credit Card Fees, Charges and Interest Rates. When used herein, “Card” means any credit card issued by
RCBC and/or RCBC Bankard Services Corporation (the “Bank”).”Cardholder” means the person who has been issued by the Bank one or more Cards, including extension Cards.
Membership Fee. The Bank charges Membership Fee to be determined by the Bank for use of the Card and/or the other facilities and services which may from time to time be made available to the Cardholder and/or for the maintenance and administration of any balance or transaction on the Card. The Cardholder agrees to pay said fee, which may be charged to the credit line or on any available fund on the Card account.
Interest Charge. Interest will be charged if the payment made to the Credit Card by the Payment Due Date is less than the Total Balance Due, if no payment was made to the Credit Card by the Payment Due Date, or if a Cash Advance transaction has been made. The interest will be imposed at the current interest rate on the:
1.Unpaid Cash Advance balance (including interest charges and fees) from acquisition date until both the Cash Advance balance and its related charges are paid in full; and,
2.Unpaid balance (inclusive of interest charges and fees) stated in the previous statement of account and on all new transactions incurred within the previous statement period computed from the transaction date until the current statement date. No interest is charged if the Cardholder pays in full the total balance due on or before the payment due date and has no Cash Advance transaction.
Interest Computation.Interest is computed as follows:
For Retail transactions: (1) Multiply the applicable monthly interest rate to Retail Transactions, installment amortizations, any retails fees and non-interest charges for the day and divide it by 30. The interest on Retail transactions and instalment amortizations in the current statement date will not be included until the next statement date. (2) Multiply the applicable monthly interest rate to previous day’s retail outstanding balance and deduct any payments made during the same day, following the application of payments, and divide it by 30. The interest computed in (1) and (2) will be the total interest for the day on Retail transactions and outstanding balance. The new retail outstanding balance will be the previous statement balance plus retail transactions, installment amortizations, retail fees and noninterest charges less payment. The retail interest for the month is the sum of the interest for each day from the day after the previous statement date to the current statement date. Interest charged on retail transactions and installment amortization will be added to the retail outstanding balance in the next statement date while interest charged on the retail fees and non-interest charges will be added to the retail outstanding balance in the current statement date.
For Cash Advance transaction: (1) Multiply the applicable monthly interest rate to Cash Advance availments and its related non-interest fees and charges for the day and divide it by 30. (2) Multiply the applicable monthly interest rate to previous day’s cash advance outstanding balance and deduct any payments made during the same day, following the application of payments, and divide it by 30. The interest computed in steps 1 and 2 will be the total interest for the day on cash advance. The cash advance outstanding balance will be the previous statement balance plus cash availments and its related non-interest fees and charges less payment. Interest charged on Cash Advances will be added to the Cash Advance outstanding balance in the current statement date.
The process is repeated until the next statement date.
Monthly Installment Due Applicable to RCBC Bankard Cash Loan Installment Due, Balance Conversion Installment Due, Unli 0% Installment Due, CHARGE Installment Due, Balance Transfer Installment Due and all other Installment Due. The Monthly Installment Due forms part of the Minimum Amount Due in the Statement of Account. If the Cardholder chooses to pay only a portion of the Total Balance Due as indicated on the Statement of Account, the unpaid portion of the Installment Due shall be subject to the monthly interest charge at the prevailing rate. Usual monthly late charge applies. The computation of the Monthly Installment Due shall be on a diminishing balance basis, under which the allocation of payment to the principal and the interest of the Monthly Installment Due over the term (number of months) is not equal.
Foreign Exchange Rates. All charges and transactions made in currencies other than Philippine Pesos shall, in accordance with the Bank’s procedures, be automatically converted to Philippine Pesos at an exchange rate determined by MasterCard/Visa/JCB/China Union Pay which amount represents the Cardholder’s payment to the Bank for the purchase and payment of the foreign currency necessary to discharge the amounts due to foreign merchants. The exchange rate applied is determined on the date of posting to the Card account and may be different from the rate in effect on the date the transaction is made. The converted amount shall be charged by up to 2.03% representing the Bank’s service fee and any assessment fee(s) charged by MasterCard/Visa/JCB/China Union Pay.
Changes in Fees and Charges. The Bank reserves the right to change, at any time and from time to time, the amount, rates, types and/or basis of calculation of all interest, fees and charges payable by the Cardholder under this agreement; provided, however, that the changes shall become effective ninety (90) days from notice. The notice of changes of interest, fees and charges may be contained in the Statement of Account. The Bank may charge the new rates to the Card account and/or request that the Cardholder pay the same on demand.
