The Prime Rate Index used to determine your APR is the prime rate published in the Wall Street Journal on the 1st day of the prior month. Your APR will be determined by adding the margin of 0.00% to the value of the Index. The minimum APR on your account is 6.00%.
How We Will Calculate Your Balance: We use a method called “average daily balance (including new purchases).” See your Credit Card Account Agreement for more details.

: The APRs used to figure interest on balances are shown in the Important Terms of Your Credit Card Account. The Monthly Periodic Rate and corresponding APR applied to the balance subject to an Interest Charge for purchases, balance transfers, and cash advances is a variable rate that may change monthly and will either increase or decrease with change in an Index as described below. The Monthly Periodic Rate is 1/12th of the corresponding APR and is used to calculate the Interest Charges for each Billing Cycle. For purposes of this Agreement, the Prime Rate is the highest rate of interest listed as the “Prime Rate” in the Money Rates section of the Wall Street Journal on the first day of the prior month. The Index value used for a Billing Cycle is the Prime Rate as published on the last day of the prior Billing Cycle. If the Index is not published on that day, the most recent published value will be used. If the Wall Street Journal ceases as a publication, we reserve the right to use the Prime Rate published by any other newspaper of general circulation. The APR is calculated by adding 0.00% to the Index value stated above. If the Prime Rate increases, your APR may increase. In that case, you may pay more interest and have an increased payment and/or an increase in the number of payments it will take to pay the balance due. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, however, the minimum APR on your Account is 6.00%
8. MINIMUM MONTHLY PAYMENT
: The Minimum Payment Due each month will be the greater of:
9. INTEREST CHARGE CALCULATION METHODS AND COMPUTATION OF BALANCE SUBJECT TO INTEREST RATE
- The New Balance shown on your statement if the amount is equal to or less than $25.00;
- $25.00 if the New Balance is $25.00 or more; or
- 4.0% of that portion of the New Balance which does not exceed your Credit Limit (rounded up to the nearest dollar), plus the entire portion of the New Balance in excess of your Credit Limit, plus any amounts past due.
: The Interest Charge Calculation Method applicable to your Account for purchases, balance transfers, and cash advances is explained below:
10. PAYMENT CREDITING AND CREDIT BALANCES
- Purchases: Average Daily Balance (including new purchases). To avoid incurring an additional Interest Charge on the balance of purchases reflected on your monthly statement and on any new purchases appearing on your next monthly statement, you must pay the New Balance shown on your monthly statement on or before the Payment Due Date. The grace period for the New Balance of purchases extends to the Payment Due Date.
The Interest Charges on purchases for a Billing Cycle are computed by applying the Monthly Periodic Rate to the “average daily balance” of purchases. To get the “average daily balance” of purchases, we take the beginning balance of your account each day, add any new purchases, balance transfers, and cash advances, and subtract any payments, credits, non-accruing fees, and unpaid interest charges. This gives us the daily balance. Then we add up all the daily balances for the billing cycle and divide the total by the number of days in the Billing Cycle.
- Balance Transfers and Cash Advances: Average Daily Balance (including current transactions). To avoid incurring an additional Interest Charge on the beginning balance of balance transfers and cash advances reflected on your monthly statement, you must pay the Beginning Balance shown on your monthly statement on or before the Payment Due Date. No grace period is provided for current cycle transactions.
The Interest Charges on balance transfers and cash advances for a Billing Cycle are computed by applying the Monthly Periodic Rate to the “average daily balance” of balance transfers and cash advances. To get the “average daily balance” of balance transfers and cash advances, we take the beginning balance of your account each day, add any new purchases, balance transfers, and cash advances, and subtract any payments, credits, non-accruing fees, and unpaid interest charges. This gives us the daily balance. Then we add up all the daily balances for the Billing Cycle and divide the total by the number of days in the Billing Cycle.
: Payments received by 5:00 p.m. eastern time at the Payment Address will be credited as of the date of receipt to the account specified on the Payment Stub. Payments made in person during normal business hours at branch locations where such payments are accepted will be treated as received on the same day. Payments that do not conform to the requirements set forth on or with the monthly statement (e.g. missing Payment Stub, payment envelope other than as provided with your statement, multiple checks or multiple coupons in the same envelope) may be subject to delay in crediting, but shall be credited within five days of receipt. If there is a credit balance due on your account, you may request, in writing, a full refund. Submit your request to Sunflower Bank, N.A., Attn: Credit Card Department, P.O. Box 800, Salina, Kansas 67402-0800.
By sending your check, you are authorizing the use of the information on your check to make a one-time electronic debit from the account on which the check is drawn. This electronic debit, which may be posted to your account as early as the date your check is received, will be only for the amount of your check. The original check will be destroyed and we will retain its image in our records. If you have questions please call the customer service number on the front of the monthly billing statement.
If you make a payment online, it must be made via the web site, which is shown on your statement, or via our online banking system. The cut-off time for online payments will be disclosed at the time of the transaction. If you do not follow these instructions, your payments may not receive credit for up to five days after we receive it.
We reserve the right to apply payments amongst the various balances on your Account at our discretion. We may accept late payments, partial payments or payments that reflect “paid in full” (or other restrictive language), without losing our rights to receive full payment. If you intend to claim to pay your Account in full with an amount less than the Outstanding Balance, payments must be sent to us at Sunflower Bank, N.A., Attn: Legal Department, P.O. Box 800, Salina, Kansas 67402-0800.

Your Rights If You Are Dissatisfied With Your Credit Card Purchases
- We cannot try to collect the amount in question, or report you as delinquent on that amount.
- The charge in question may remain on your statement, and we may continue to charge you interest on that amount. But, if we determine that we made a mistake, you will not have to pay the amount in question or any interest or other fees related to that amount.
- While you do not have to pay the amount in question, you are responsible for the remainder of your balance.
- We can apply any unpaid amount against your credit limit.
If you are dissatisfied with the goods or services that you have purchased with your credit card and you have tried in good faith to correct the problem with the merchant, you may have the right not to pay the remaining amount due on the purchase. To use this right, all of the following must be true:
- The purchase must have been made in your home state or within 100 miles of your current mailing address, and the purchase price must have been more than $50. Note: Neither of these are necessary if your purchase was based on an advertisement we mailed to you, or if we own the company that sold you the goods or services.
- You must have used your credit card for the purchase. Purchases made with cash advances from an ATM or with a check that accesses your Account do not qualify.
- You must not yet have fully paid for the purchase.
If all of the criteria above are met and you are still dissatisfied with the purchase, contact us in writing (or electronically) at the address shown on the front of your billing statement following the phrase “Please send Billing Inquiries and Correspondence To.” While we investigate, the same rules apply to the disputed amount as discussed above. After we finish our investigation, we will tell you our decision. At that point, if we think you owe an amount and you do not pay, we may report you as delinquent.
