*Only Visa check cards issued in the United States and in good standing may be eligible to participate in ScoreCard® Rewards. Business Account debit cards are not eligible for this program. Additional exclusions of cards may apply. We reserve the right to determine in our sole discretion whether a particular Visa card or cardholder is eligible to participate in ScoreCard® Rewards.

**Only Qualifying Purchases with an enrolled Visa card can earn points. A “Qualifying Purchase” is any signature-based purchase, Internet purchases, phone or mail order purchases, bill payments, contactless purchases (purchases made by holding your Visa card or other device up to a secure reader instead of swiping your card), or small dollar purchases for which you are not required to sign, made with an enrolled Visa Check card, which is processed or submitted through the Visa U.S.A. Inc. payment system. Do not use a Personal Identification Number (PIN) when paying for your purchases with your enrolled Visa Check card if you want to earn points for such purchases. PIN-based purchases, purchases you initiate through identification technology that substitutes for a PIN, cash advances, ATM transactions, fees charged by us or transactions that are not processed or submitted through the Visa U.S.A. Inc. payment system are not Qualifying Purchases. We reserve the right to determine in our sole discretion whether a particular Visa Check card transaction is a Qualifying Purchase
