DISCOVER CARD CHANGES IN TERMS

 We are making changes to the Discover® Cardmember Agreement.

 

 We are also making changes to your Minimum Payment Due calculation, which may result in a lower required monthly payment.

 

Minimum Payment Due. Effective December 1, 2012, we are changing the Minimum Payment Due calculation, which may result in a lower required monthly payment. This change applies to any Minimum Payment Due that is calculated for the billing period that starts on or after December 1, 2012. We are replacing the "Minimum Payment Due" section of your Cardmember Agreement with the following:

"Minimum Payment Due. You may pay the entire New Balance shown on your billing statement at any time. Each billing period you must pay at least the Minimum Payment Due by the Payment Due Date shown on your billing statement. The Minimum Payment Due will be any amount past due plus the greater of:

- $35; or
- 2% of the New Balance shown on your billing statement; or
- Any Interest Charges and Late Fee shown on your billing statement, plus $20.

The Minimum Payment Due may also include amounts by which you exceed your Account credit line. However, it will never exceed the New Balance. When we calculate the Minimum Payment Due, we may subtract from the New Balance certain fees added to your Account during the billing period. The Minimum Payment Due is rounded up to the nearest dollar."
