Fred Meyer Rewards® World Mastercard® Terms and Conditions
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.

We may change APRs, fees, and other Account terms in the future based on your experience with U.S. Bank National Association and its affiliates as provided under the Cardmember Agreement and applicable law.

We apply your minimum payment to balances with lower APRs first, including promotional APRs. Amounts paid over the minimum payment will be applied in the order of highest to lowest APR balances.

How Variable Interest Rates Are Determined: After the introductory period, your interest rate is a variable rate and is determined by a combination of the Prime Rate (which may vary) added to a margin (which does not change). Because the Prime Rate may vary, your variable interest rate will go up or down if the Prime Rate changes. If you are granted an Account, the following rates on the Account are variable: Non-Introductory Purchase Rate; Non-Introductory Balance Transfer Rate; Cash Advance Rate. More information is available in the Cardmember Agreement.

Notice to California Residents: An applicant, if married, may apply for a separate account.
Notice to Married Wisconsin Residents: No provision of any marital property agreement, unilateral statement under section 766.59 of the Wisconsin statutes or court decree under section 766.70, adversely affects our interest unless we, prior to the time the credit is granted or an open-end credit plan is entered into, are furnished a copy of the agreement, decree or court order, or have actual knowledge of the adverse provision. IF YOU ARE A MARRIED WISCONSIN RESIDENT, CREDIT EXTENDED UNDER THIS ACCOUNT WILL BE INCURRED IN THE INTEREST OF YOUR MARRIAGE OR FAMILY.
Notice to Ohio Residents: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.

We may request consumer credit reports about you for evaluating this application and in the future for reviewing Account credit limits, for Account renewal, for servicing and collection purposes, and for other legitimate purposes associated with your Account. Upon your request, we will inform you if a consumer report was requested and, if it was, provide you with the name and address of the consumer reporting agency that furnished the report. By providing us with a telephone number for a cellular phone or other wireless device, including a number that you later convert to a cellular number, you are expressly consenting to receiving communications—including but not limited to prerecorded or artificial voice message calls, text messages, and calls made by an automatic telephone dialing system—from us and our affiliates and agents at that number. This express consent applies to each such telephone number that you provide to us now or in the future and permits such calls for non-marketing purposes. Calls and messages may incur access fees from your cellular provider. By submitting this application, you also agree that we may verify your employment, income, address and all other information provided with other creditors, credit reporting agencies, employers, third parties, and through records maintained by federal and state agencies (including any state motor vehicle department) and waive any rights of confidentiality you may have in that information under applicable law.

"Expanded Account Access" means use of a card or account number and PIN to conduct a transaction or obtain information at ATMs, over the telephone, through personal computer banking, or via any other available method. If the Card or PIN is for a joint account, the Card or PIN can be used to access all the accounts linked to the Card or PIN Access, whether joint or individual.

If you cancel Expanded Account Access for any account, this Account will not be accessible by any card or PIN other than the Card or PIN issued under this Agreement.
Rewards Program. The Fred Meyer Rewards® program (the "Program") is a store program offered by Kroger and is included as part of the Fred Meyer Rewards® credit card account (the "Account") issued by U.S. Bank National Association (as used herein, "we", "us", "our" and the "Bank") and sponsored by Kroger Personal Finance® ("Kroger"). Only the Program as it pertains to your Account is described in this Rewards Program Section. There may be additional benefits offered to you from time to time by Fred Meyer as part of the Program. Those additional benefits are not subject to this Agreement. Individuals who use their Account ("you", "your" and "Cardmembers") will earn 1 reward point ("Rewards Points") for each dollar of Net Purchases spent using their Account and 2 rewards points for each dollar of Net purchases spent using their Account inside Fred Meyer Store(s). As described in this Rewards Program Section, Rewards Points may be automatically redeemed for Fred Meyer Rewards® Rebates ("Rewards Certificates") which are redeemable for Purchases from Fred Meyer stores. Capitalized terms not defined in this Rewards Program Section are defined elsewhere in the Agreement.

a) Program Participation.
You are automatically enrolled in the Program when your Account is opened. You will earn Rewards Points on Net Purchases as described in this Rewards Program Section. Your enrollment in the Program will continue even if you are not earning Rewards Points on your Account or your Account is closed, unless your enrollment in the Program is also cancelled. Your Account must remain open to earn and redeem Rewards Points for all authorized transactions. If your Account is reported as lost/stolen, an Account flagged for fraud or if the Bank has withdrawn or suspended your right to use your Account, you will not earn any Rewards Points or receive any Rewards Points previously earned. If you bring your Account back to good standing, you will be eligible to begin to earn new Rewards Points. If your Account is closed by you or by the Bank, any Rewards Points which have been earned, but for which no Rewards Certificates have not been issued, will be forfeited; however, if your Account is closed by the Bank for fraud or a lost or stolen card and the Bank opens a replacement Account and issues a related card, we will transfer any earned but not yet redeemed Rewards Points to your replacement Account.

b) Earning Rewards.
Rewards Points are earned each time you make an eligible Purchase using your Account.

  • You earn 1 Point for every dollar of Net Purchases (defined below) in a single transaction except for Purchases at Fred Meyer Fuel Centers or Kroger Fuel Centers.
  • You earn 2 Points for every dollar of Net purchases (defined below) in a single transaction inside Fred Meyer Store(s). Exclusions apply at Fred Meyer Fuel Centers or Kroger Fuel Centers.

The list of Fred Meyer Stores, Fred Meyer Fuel Centers and Kroger Fuel Centers is subject to change; for an up-to-date list of participating stores, visit www.krogercreditfamilyofcompanies.com.

For Purchases to be eligible for Rewards Points, you must pay with your Account at the time of purchase. "Net Purchases" for a statement period are determined by totaling all new Purchases charged to the Account during the billing cycle, then subtracting credits posted to the Account during the billing cycle for returned Purchases and/or adjustments. We may round Net Purchases up or down to a whole dollar amount for purposes of awarding Rewards Points; amounts less than one dollar will be disregarded. If credits during a statement period exceed Purchases, the credit balance will be carried over to the following billing cycles and offset against future Purchases charged to the Account for purposes of awarding Rewards Points. You do not earn Rewards Points on the following transactions with your Account: any purchase at Fred Meyer Fuel Centers or Kroger Fuel Centers, Advances (including wire transfers, traveler's checks, money orders, foreign cash transactions, betting transactions, lottery tickets and ATM disbursements), Convenience Checks, Balance Transfers, INTEREST CHARGES and Fees, credit insurance charges, transactions to fund certain prepaid card products, U.S Mint purchases, or transactions to purchase cash convertible items that are posted to your Account. We may reverse Rewards Points that were awarded for unauthorized Purchases, and we reserve the right to reverse Rewards Points and/or cancel benefits or awards if we reasonably believe that a Purchase was not a bona fide purchase of goods or services delivered or performed by a merchant and not returned by you. Rewards Points are nontransferable and have no cash value. There are no limits (other than the Account credit limit) on the amount of Rewards Points Cardmembers can earn. From time to time we may offer special promotions to provide additional opportunities to earn Rewards Points.

c) Rewards Redemption.
The Rewards Points earned on the Account are sent to Fred Meyer, who manages the fulfillment of Rewards Certificates. For information regarding Rewards Certificate redemption, please contact the Fred Meyer Rewards Customer Service Center at 1-866-518-2686, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. Pacific Time, or visit www.fredmeyer.com. Neither the Bank nor Kroger has any responsibility for lost, stolen, missing, or otherwise damaged or destroyed Rewards Certificates.

d) General Program Rules.
The Program is offered by Kroger. The Bank disclaims any responsibility for the Program or failure to award Rewards Points or failure to redeem Rewards Certificates. Cardmembers will receive other materials regarding the Program on their Account Statement or telephone messages from time to time which become part of the Program.

Your Rewards Points will appear at the bottom of your Fred Meyer receipts, are available Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. Pacific Time, at 1-866-518-2686, and are available at www.fredmeyer.com.

Our determination as to application of the Program Terms and Conditions to Cardmembers shall be final and conclusive. We and Kroger reserve the right to add to, amend, terminate or change the terms of applicability of the Program to your Account at any time with or without notice to you. The Program is void where prohibited by Federal, state or local law. You are solely responsible for any personal tax liability related to your participation in the Program or as a result of Rewards Points accumulated or redeemed.
