Payments are allocated to posted balances. If your account has balances with different APRs, we will allocate the amount of your payment equal to the Total Minimum Payment Due to the highest APR balances first. Payment amounts in excess of your Total Minimum Payment Due will be applied to balances with higher APRs before balances with lower APRs.

You have obtained a cash advance if you use your Account to obtain cash from an ATM, financial institution, or other location; use a convenience check; purchase items that are convertible to cash, such as lottery tickets, money orders, casino chips, foreign currency, or similar items.
