IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money-laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

If we open a credit card account for you (the “MB Account”), you also agree that we may obtain consumer credit reports about you in the future for purposes such as reviewing, updating, renewing, and servicing your MB Account and other purposes permitted by law. We will, if you request, tell you whether we obtained a credit report about you and tell you the name and address of any credit reporting agency that provides your credit report to us. You also agree that we may verify your employment, income, address and all other information about you with creditors, credit reporting agencies, employers, and other third parties, and through records maintained by government agencies.

You will be individually liable (or, for a joint MB Account, individually and jointly liable) for all amounts, transactions, fees, and charges contained in the credit card agreement we provide when opening the MB Account, which may be amended from time to time. You agree to read the agreement carefully before you use or permit anyone else to use the MB Account. If we intend to deny your application for the particular credit card account selected in your application, you agree that we are automatically authorized to consider your eligibility for our other credit card products. By applying for the MB Account, you certify that you read, understood and agree to the terms, conditions, and disclosures made in this application.

Applicants under 21 years old must either (1) have a co-applicant who is at least 21 years old and meets the minimum credit requirements who will also be liable for any debt incurred or (2) demonstrate an independent ability to pay the debt.

Your Consent For Our Communications With You: By providing a telephone number for a cellular telephone or other wireless device in your application for the MB Account, you expressly consent to receiving communications at this number from us and our agents or designated representatives, regardless of the purpose of the communications and in any form possible and not expressly prohibited by law (including, but not limited to, prerecorded or artificial voice message calls, text messages, and calls made by an automatic telephone dialing system).

Balance Transfers: A “Balance Transfer” is a balance we allow you to transfer to your MB Account from an account you owe to another financial institution or creditor. To complete a Balance Transfer, there must be enough credit available in your MB Account for the Balance Transfer and you must use a written, electronic or telephonic method or device that we approved for this purpose. All Balance Transfers are subject to our approval. We will not process Balance Transfer requests we consider incomplete or illegible. We will not process requests for a Balance Transfer payable directly to you, to us, or to any of our affiliates. We are not liable to you if we do not process part or all of any Balance Transfer you request. We may make Balance Transfers in any order we choose. We may also limit the amount of Balance Transfers to your MB Account, to an amount that is less than the total credit limit of your MB Account. If we do not approve the full amount of any Balance Transfer you request, we may process part or none of the Balance Transfer amount you requested. Do not request a Balance Transfer for any amount that is or may be subject to a dispute between you and any other financial institution or creditor. After you request a Balance Transfer, you should still monitor and pay at least the minimum amount due on your other account, until the other institution sends an account statement to you showing that you are no longer required to make any account payment. You are liable to your other financial institutions for any fees, charges, and amounts due under their credit agreements with you, including any late payment fees and finance charges you may owe if a Balance Transfer or any other payment is not completed in the time and manner required by the other institution. We will not instruct any other financial institution to close their account with you after we process a Balance Transfer. If you want to close your account with another institution after we process a Balance Transfer, you must instruct the other institution to do so. We will begin charging interest on Balance Transfers on the transaction date.

There is no limit to the number of points you can earn with an MB Account. Points will not be awarded to an MB Account for net purchases if your MB Account is not open and current.

Security Agreement and Pledge: If we approve your MB Account application, you agree that you will be bound by the terms and conditions of the MB Financial Bank, N.A. Consumer Credit Card and Security Agreement (the “Agreement”). Your duties to us in connection with the MB Account, the Cards, and the Agreement are your “Account Obligations.” You agree to provide us with security deposit funds as collateral and security for your Account Obligations, in an amount at least equal to your MB Account credit limit (“Security Deposit Funds”). You agree we may hold all Security Deposit Funds in a deposit account at MB Financial Bank, N.A. (the “Security Deposit Account”).

As security for your Account Obligations and as provided in the Agreement, you irrevocably and unconditionally pledge, assign, and grant a security interest to us in the Security Deposit Account, in any Security Deposit Funds deposited or held at any time in the Security Deposit Account, and in any instrument we may issue to evidence your Security Deposit Account or the Security Deposit Funds. You agree, irrevocably and unconditionally, to give up all possession of and control over the Security Deposit Funds and Security Deposit Account. You understand that you may not withdraw Security Deposit Funds or request a refund of Security Deposit Funds at any time, unless you close your MB Account and we determine that all of your Account Obligations have been paid in full.

Any interest we may pay on Security Deposit Funds shall be as described in the separate terms and conditions that apply to the Security Deposit Account. If any interest is earned on Security Deposit Funds, you agree that we may add that interest to the Security Deposit Account as proceeds to secure your Account Obligations. If you or we close your MB Account for any reason, or if you are in default of your Account Obligations, you agree that we may withdraw and apply the Security Deposit Funds in payment of your outstanding Account Obligations.
