    See Terms and Conditions below for more information.

  2. 0% Intro APR for the first 12 months on balance transfers when you transfer your balance within the first 60 days of account opening. After that, the variable APR on balance transfers will be 13.99% - 22.99% based on creditworthiness. This APR will vary with the market based on the Prime Rate. Balance transfer fee is either $10.00 or 3% of the amount of each transaction, whichever is greater.

    DO YOU PAY YOUR BALANCE IN FULL EACH MONTH?
    If you always pay your balance in full each month, you do not pay interest on your purchases. This is called a grace period. You will lose this grace period if you transfer a balance and do not pay off your entire balance by the payment due date. Even if you pay off all of your purchases in full each month, you will begin to pay interest on those purchases. To avoid interest on purchases, you must pay the entire balance (including the balance transfer amount) each month by the payment due date. Here’s an example: Let’s say you complete a balance transfer or write a $1,000 convenience check. No matter how else you use your card, that part of the balance has the disclosed Introductory APR for the disclosed amount of billing cycles from account opening. Then you make a $500 purchase with your card. Purchases are charged the disclosed purchase APR from the transaction date once you lose your grace period. If you do not pay the entire $1,500 by the payment due date you will have lost your grace period and therefore you will pay the disclosed purchase interest APR on the $500 in card purchases from the transaction date.
  3. Introductory offer: For a limited time earn a cash back bonus offer after spending $5,000 within 90 days of account opening. The bonus cashback amount will be $500 if redeemed towards student loans with an eligible servicer. The bonus cashback amount will be $250 if redeemed for statement credit. Cashback is awarded based on eligible credit card purchases excluding transactions such as cash advances of any type, balance transfers, convenience check transactions, overdraft protection transfers and quasi-cash transactions.

  3. How you can earn Cashback Rewards. You earn Cashback Rewards when you, or an Authorized User, uses a Card to make most Purchases of goods and services, minus refunds or returns. The Account and your Cashback Rewards are for personal, family and household use, and we reserve the right to disallow or remove Cashback Rewards awarded for Purchase made for other than personal, family or household use. Additionally, certain transactions do not count as Purchases for purposes of earning Cashback Rewards:

    • person-to-person money transfer

Your Cashback Rewards amount will be displayed on our website, at https://laurelroad.key.com and on your Monthly Statement. There may be a delay between when your Cashback Rewards are added to your Account and when they are visible to you on the website. We may, from time to time, offer additional ways for you to view your Cashback Rewards amount, such as through our mobile applications.

  5. Redeeming Your Cashback Rewards. You can redeem your Cashback Rewards at any time by visiting our website, at https://laurelroad. key.com, or by calling us at the number on the back of your Card. You may elect to redeem your Cashback Rewards either as a statement credit to your Account or a Student Loan Credit. No other redemption options are available. You may redeem your Cashback Rewards starting at a penny, and there is no maximum redemption limit.
    1. Redeeming for a Statement Credit. A statement credit will reduce your Account Balance. Statement credits appear on your Bill as an adjustment and not as a Payment, so you must continue to pay your Minimum Payment due each month. Receipt of a statement credit does not affect your responsibility to pay your Minimum Payment, as shown on your Monthly Statement. The statement credit will generally be processed within 7 business days from the date you redeem your Cashback Rewards.
    2. Redeeming for a Student Loan Credit. If you elect to redeem your Cashback Rewards for a Student Loan Credit, we will issue the payment to your applicable Servicer within ten (10) business days. Once the Student Loan Credit is issued to your Servicer, you understand and agree that we shall have no further responsibility or control over how quickly your Servicer may post the Student Loan Credit to your Student Loan or how it may be applied to the balance of your Student Loan. If your Servicer returns the Student Loan Credit to us, such amount will be returned to your Cashback Rewards balance and will again be available for redemption.
  6. Expiration of Cashback Rewards. Your Cashback Rewards have no expiration. However, provided your Account is not in Default, we will automatically issue a statement credit to your Account if your Account is closed, if we are notified of your death and you are the sole owner of your Account, or if your Account has become inactive. Your Account becomes inactive when you do not make any eligible Purchases for a twelve (12) month period. If your Account becomes, and remains, inactive, a statement credit will be issued to your Account within five (5) business days of December 31 each year.
  7. When You Will Not Be Able to Earn or Redeem Your Cashback Rewards. We may temporarily suspend your Account from earning Cashback Rewards, or using Cashback Rewards you have already earned, if any of the following occurs:
    • If you do not make your Minimum Payment on your Account by the Due Date.
    • If we believe you have engaged in fraudulent activity related to your Account or the Program.
    • If we believe you have misused the Program in any way. Examples include, but are not limited to:
      • Buying or selling any Cashback Rewards
      • Moving or transferring Cashback Rewards to an ineligible third party or account
      • Repeatedly opening, or otherwise maintaining, credit card accounts for the purpose of generating Cashback Rewards

    If we suspend your participation in the Program, you may begin earning and using Cashback Rewards again in the next Billing Period after your Account is current or when we no longer suspect fraud or misuse of the Account or Program.

  8. When You May Lose Your Cashback Rewards. Your Cashback Rewards do not expire, subject to Section 6 of these Terms, as long as your Account is open. If you lose your Cashback Rewards pursuant to these Terms, we will not reinstate them unless we have made an error.

    5. You agree to indemnify us, and our affiliates, directors, officers, employers, agents, or contractors harmless from and against any loss, damage, liability, cost, or expense of any kind (including attorneys’ fees) arising from you or your Authorized Users’ use of the Program, any fraud or misuse of the Program, violation of these Terms, and/or violation of any applicable law or the rights of any third party.
    6. The Program is void where prohibited by federal, state, or local law.
