Protections Under the Military Lending Act:Federal law provides important protections to members of the Armed Forces and their dependents relating to extensions of consumer credit. In general, the cost of consumer credit to a member of the Armed Forces and his or her dependent (a "Covered Borrower") may not exceed an annual percentage rate of 36 percent. This rate must include: the costs of our optional credit protection product, SafeLine, which is not currently offered to our WebBank/Fingerhut FreshStart Credit Account customers. We do not charge application or participation fees. You are a "Covered Borrower" if at the time of establishing this account you are an active duty service member or an active Guard or Reserve duty member, or you are a qualifying dependent of that member. If you are a Covered Borrower, the provisions of this WebBank/Fingerhut FreshStart Credit Account relating to arbitration do not apply to this WebBank/Fingerhut FreshStart Credit Account involving consumer credit.
NOTE: If you are a Covered Borrower who graduated from a closed-end WebBank/Fingerhut FreshStart Credit Account prior to October 3, 2017, the Military Lending Act protections will not apply to your open-end WebBank/Fingerhut Advantage Credit Account.

Credit Card Account: You request that we consider you for a revolving WebBank/Fingerhut Advantage Credit Account that you can use for future purposes, and that we send you a credit card or account number if you are approved. If you pay off your initial purchase within 6 payments or earlier with no instance of late payments, we may issue a WebBank/Fingerhut Advantage Credit Account to you. However, if you elect to pay your entire balance due at the same time as your down payment, then this will cancel your Loan and you may not be eligible to be considered for a WebBank/Fingerhut Advantage Credit Account.
