*We add a margin to the Prime Rate to determine variable APRs. We use the highest Prime Rate listed in The Wall Street Journal on the last business day of the calendar month prior to your statement closing date (for example, if your statement closed on March 15, we would use the Prime Rate in effect on February 28 for your current statement period that covers February 16 to March 15 period). APRs shown here are based on the 5.25% Prime Rate in effect on November 1, 2018. For each billing period, the APR is determined by adding a margin to the Prime Rate. The margin for the APR for Purchases and Balance Transfers is 9.74% to 19.74%, based on your creditworthiness and for Cash Advances is 18.74% – 21.74%. The variable rates, the fees, and the terms are subject to change. To find out if any rates, fees or terms have changed, please write to: TCM Bank, N.A., P.O. Box 31537, Tampa, FL 33631.
