Balance Transfers. Here's How it Works:
To request a balance transfer please enter the 15/16 digit account number from the MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover Card account that you want us to process a balance transfer to. If the total amount you request exceeds the assigned credit line on your new account, we may either decline the request or send a partial payment to your creditor(s). The amount of available credit on your new account will be reduced by the amount transferred and the related balance transfer fees. We reserve the right to decline to process any requested balance transfer. We will not process a request to transfer a balance from any other account you may have with us. Balance transfers incur interest from the transaction date. You should not transfer the amount of any disputed purchase or other charge. If you do, you may lose your dispute rights. Upon approval of your application we will process the requested balance transfer payment to the account(s) which you have requested on the 10th day after we’ve mailed you your card; during this 10 day time period you may cancel your balance transfer by contacting us at the number on the back of your card.
A balance transfer may take up to 4 weeks to post to your other credit card accounts. Continue to pay each creditor until the balance transfer appears on the other account as a credit. If you would like to complete a balance transfer from another account that is not a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card, please call the phone number on the back of your new credit card once you are approved. Balance transfers are subject to availability. We may deny balance transfer requests at any time and for any reason.
Paying Interest on Balance Transfers and Cash Advances:
We charge interest on balance transfers and cash advances beginning on the transaction date. We charge interest on purchases unless you pay your entire balance, which includes all purchases, cash advances and balance transfers by the payment due date each and every month. Your entire balance includes any balances you transfer pursuant to this offer. This means that we will charge you interest on purchases if you do not pay any balance transfers in full by the first payment due date. Please see your Cardmember Agreement for details on how interest accrues.
Cash Equivalent Purchases: The purchase of money orders, travelers' checks, foreign currency, lottery tickets, gambling chips, wire transfers and other similar transactions are treated as cash advances. Please see the Cardmember Agreement that will accompany your credit card upon account opening for more details.

Princess Rewards™ Program
1. General- The Princess Rewards™ Visa Card is issued by Barclays Bank Delaware ("Barclays").

The Princess Rewards™ Visa Card is only open to U.S. residents at least 18 years old.
2. Program Eligibility-The Princess Rewards Program eligibility is restricted to individuals who maintain a Princess Rewards Visa Credit Card Account ("Account") that is open and current.
On the closing date of each billing cycle that your "Account" remains open and current, Barclays will calculate the Net Purchases charged to your Account during a billing cycle. If your Account is not open and/or current on the date a billing cycle closes, Barclays will calculate no Net Purchases for that billing cycle. Princess Points’ (“Points”) will be issued to the Primary Cardmember, regardless of who made the purchase. "Net Purchases" for a billing cycle are determined by totaling all new purchases added to your Account during the billing cycle, and then subtracting Points posted to your Account during the period for returned purchases and/or adjustments. For purposes of calculating Net Purchases, Barclays may round up or down to whole dollar amounts. If Points for returned purchases exceed new purchases during a billing cycle, Barclays will calculate negative Net Purchases and reduce the Primary Cardmember's accrued points accordingly. Net Purchases do not include fees, finance charges, credit insurance premiums, or transactions posting as non-qualifying Balance Transfers or Cash Advances, whether received from financial institutions, automated teller machines, by use of Barclays convenience checks, or by any other means.
