Finally, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has a database containing generic credit card agreements of more than 300 credit card issuers. A credit card is more than just a piece of plastic that allows you to spend money. This is a way to access the credit limit that the card issuer has agreed to allow you to borrow. Your account contains certain provisions that you must comply with if you want to continue using your credit card and to prevent your balance from being affected. Your credit card rules are outlined in your credit card contract, a type of contract that describes credit card conditions, conditions, prices and penalties. We include consumer credit card agreements in this database, as the respective issuers have submitted. The GFPB is not responsible for the content of the agreements, including any discrepancies between an agreement as presented in the database and the agreement, as proposed to the public, or omissions or other errors in the agreement, as presented by the issuer. Under the Truth in LENDING Act (TILA) of 1968, credit card issuers are prohibited from providing misleading information about their offers and must clearly explain the terms and conditions of their credit cards in the cardholder`s contract. Customers who wish to accept a new credit card should therefore carefully check their cardholder agreement to confirm that the actual provisions of the card are as advertised. You must pay your credit card bill in a way that meets all the following conditions: A cardholder contract is a legal document that describes the conditions under which a credit card is offered to a customer. Among other things, the cardholder`s agreement indicates the annual percentage (APR) of the card as well as the calculation of the minimum card payments. We have provided this database to allow you to search for agreements between credit card issuers and their customers. The agreements in this database contain terms and conditions, prices and fee information.
