About This Offer: You must be at least 18 years of age. This offer is available only to applicants who are residents of the United States, with the exception of the US territories. You may not be eligible for this offer if you currently have or previously had an account with us in this Program. In addition, you may not be eligible for this offer if, at any time during our relationship with you as the issuer of an account in this Program, we have cause, as determined by us in our sole discretion, to suspect that the account is being obtained or will be used for abusive or gaming activity (such as, but not limited to, obtaining or using the account to maximize rewards earned in a manner that is not consistent with typical consumer activity and/or multiple credit card account applications/openings). If at the time of your application you do not meet the credit or income criteria previously established for this offer, or the income you report is insufficient based on your current obligations, we will not be able to open an account for you.

*Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means to you: When you apply for an account, we will ask for your name, street address, date of birth, social security number, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see copies of identifying documents. We also ask for country of citizenship.
Balance Transfers. Here's How it Works: To request a balance transfer please enter the 15/16 digit account number from the Mastercard, Visa, American Express, or Discover Card account that you want us to process a balance transfer from. If the total amount you request exceeds the assigned credit line on your new account, we may either decline the request or send a partial payment to your creditor(s). The amount of available credit on your new account will be reduced by the amount transferred and the related balance transfer fees. We reserve the right to decline to process any requested balance transfer. We will not process a request to transfer a balance from any other account you may have with us. Balance transfers incur interest from the transaction date. You should not transfer the amount of any disputed purchase or other charge. If you do, you may lose your dispute rights.
Upon approval of your application we will process the requested balance transfer payment to the account(s) which you have requested on the 10th day after we've mailed you your card; during this 10 day time period you may cancel your balance transfer by contacting us at the number on the back of your card. A balance transfer may take up to 4 weeks to post to your other accounts. Continue to pay each creditor until the balance transfer appears on the other account as a credit. If you would like to complete a balance transfer from another account that is not a Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover Card account, please call the phone number on the back of your new credit card once you are approved. Balance transfers are subject to availability. We may deny balance transfer requests at any time and for any reason.
Avoiding Interest on Purchases: We will not charge you interest on any purchases if you pay your entire balance by the due date each month. In addition, during this introductory period we will not charge you interest on purchases if you pay by the due date each month your outstanding statement balance minus any new 0% introductory APR Balance Transfer balances. To avoid a late fee, you should pay at least the minimum payment due on your account each month.
Credit Limit: We do not permit applicants to request a specific credit limit. We do not consider a request for a balance transfer made with an application to be a request for a particular credit limit. We determine the credit limit on your account independent of and prior to processing any balance transfer request.
Cash Equivalent Purchases: The purchase of money orders, travelers' checks, foreign currency, lottery tickets, gambling chips, wire transfers and other similar transactions are treated as cash advances. Please see your Cardmember Agreement for details.
New York Residents: New York residents may contact the New York State Department of Financial Services by telephone (800) 342-3736, or visit the website, www.dfs.ny.gov, for free information on comparative credit card rates, fees and grace periods.
Notice to Ohio Residents: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.
Notice to Married Wisconsin Residents: No marital property agreement, unilateral statement or court decree under Wisconsin's marital property law will adversely affect our interests unless before your account is opened, you give us a copy of the agreement, statement or decree or we have actual knowledge of it. You understand that we may be required to give notice of this account to your spouse.

Upromise Round Up (“Upromise Round Up”):
- Participation in Upromise Round Up is optional. In order to participate in Upromise Round Up you must set your threshold to any dollar amount from $1 to $500. If you do not wish to participate in Upromise Round Up, you should leave your threshold set to the default amount, which is $0. The current threshold as of 11:59pm ET on the end of the day before your billing cycle ends will be used as the threshold for the next billing cycle. You can view and update your threshold amount by visiting BarclaysUS.com.
- Upromise Round Up rounds up purchases made by you and/or any authorized user of the Account as follows: when a purchase is not a whole dollar amount, it will be rounded up to the nearest whole dollar up to your threshold. For example, if you make a purchase in the amount of $3.10, your round up amount will be $0.90.
- The total number of cents from purchases that are rounded up to the next whole dollar amount will be posted as a purchase to your Account and converted to cash back (“Round Up Amount”) on the end of the day before your billing cycle ends, subject to your Upromise Program account remaining in good standing and not otherwise suspended or terminated. For example, if your Round Up Amount is $50, we will post $50 as a purchase to your Account and convert the $50 to cash back. Any purchases not posted to your Upromise Mastercard Account by the end of the day before your billing cycle ends will not be considered in the Round Up Amount until the next billing cycle.
- Round Up Amounts are considered purchases and earn 1.25% cash back as described in the “Earning Cash Back” section above. Unlike other purchases on your account, if you carry a balance, the Round Up Amount portion of your balance, will not be subject to interest charges.
- Regardless of the occurrence of fraud, returns or the resolution of disputed purchases we will calculate the Round Up Amount based on all purchases that posted to your Account.
- If at the time of calculating the Round Up Amount, there is inadequate credit line to include the total Round Up Amount, we will include the Round Up Amount available up to your credit line. In the event there is no credit line available, we will not include any Round Up Amount for that billing cycle. Please note, even though any Round Up Amount that is posted to your Account will not cause you to go over your credit line, any interest and fees that bill to your Account after the close of your billing cycle could cause your total balance to exceed your credit line.
- Your Round Up Amount will be shown separately as a purchase and as cash back on your billing statement. An itemized list of Round Up Amounts will be available for viewing online at BarclaysUS.com by visiting the Upromise Round Up summary page.
15% 529 College Savings Plan Account Linking Bonus
When your Upromise Program account is directly linked to an eligible 529 College Savings Plan prior to the end of your billing cycle, you’ll receive a 15% bonus on your total cash back, including Round Up Amounts. You will receive the 15% bonus after the close of each billing cycle. The 15% bonus is calculated based on your total cash back at the end of your billing cycle. You can view your 15% bonus on your billing statement or by visiting BarclaysUS.com.
