About Your Credit Report and Your Credit Performance: You agree that Barclays has the right to obtain a current credit report in connection with our review of your application and, subsequently, in connection with a requested charge to any account with us, the renewal of your account, or a change in your credit line; and that we have the right to report to others our credit experience with you.

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 to you: When you apply for an account, we will ask for your name, street address, date of birth, social security number, and other information that will allow us to identify you.

Notice to Married Wisconsin Residents: No provision of any marital property agreement, unilateral statement under Section 766.59 of the Wisconsin statutes, or court order under Section 766.70 adversely affects the interest of the creditor, Barclays Bank Delaware, unless the Bank, prior to the time the credit is granted or an open-end credit plan is entered into, is furnished a copy of the Agreement, Statement or Decree, or has actual knowledge of the adverse provision.

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.
The information contained in these disclosures is accurate as of 05/01/2013 and may change after this date.
Carnival Rewards Program
The Carnival Mastercard credit card account is issued by Barclays Bank Delaware (“Barclaycard”). Barclaycard and Carnival are responsible for establishing the terms and conditions of the Carnival Rewards program (the “Program”) and reserve the right to modify, amend or terminate the Program at any time. The words “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Barclays Bank Delaware and its successor firms, subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively “Barclaycard”).
The following Terms and Conditions apply to the Carnival Rewards Program (“Program”). Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully. Use of your Carnival Rewards Mastercard credit card Account (“Card”) after you receive these Terms and Conditions will signify that you have read and agreed to all of the following provisions. As used in these Terms and Conditions, the words “you” or “Cardholder” means any client who holds an activated Card and is enrolled in the Program.
Program eligibility is restricted to Cardholders with Accounts that are open and in good standing as determined in our sole discretion. Your Card will not be in good standing for reasons that include, but are not limited to, (a) your account has been closed; (b) a payment has not been made when due; (c) a payment made to us is not honored by your bank; or (d) if you do not maintain the level of credit performance you maintained when approved. You must also use your card for at least one (1) purchase transaction every six (6) months (or have some type of account balance every six months). Failure to meet these requirements may result in account closure and/or forfeiture of all outstanding points earned. In addition, if your payment is late in a particular billing cycle, this may result in the forfeiture of points earned in that billing cycle. If your points are forfeited for any reason, we will not reinstate these points to your account. The Account may only be used for personal, family or household purposes. You must be a consumer and you must reside in the United States. If you do not keep your Account open and current your enrollment in the Program may be cancelled and any unredeemed Points may be cancelled.
Point Accrual and Tracking
Cardmembers earn “Fun Points” (“Points”) in the Program. Points are the measure used to value rewards for redemption. If a Card has multiple Cardholders, the Points will be assigned to the Account of the primary Cardholder of the Card. Cardmembers earn “Points” in the following amounts based upon the type of purchase transaction charged to the Account:
(a) two (2) points per one dollar ($1) on Carnival Cruise vacation and Carnival Vacation Club transactions,
(b) two (2) points per one dollar ($1) on any purchases charged to the Sail and Sign account onboard any Carnival cruise ship, and
(c) one (1) point per one dollar ($1) spent on all other transactions.
Points earned are based on the new net retail transaction activity (“Net Purchases” i.e. purchases less credits, returns and adjustments) charged to the Card during each periodic billing cycle. When a purchase or transaction is not a whole dollar amount, any fraction equal to or greater than $0.50 will be rounded up to the nearest whole dollar and any fraction equal to or less than $0.49 will be rounded down to the nearest whole dollar. For example, if a Cardholder makes a purchase in the amount of $49.49, 49 Points will be awarded, but if the transaction amount is $49.50, 50 Points will be awarded.
Transactions that are not eligible to earn Points include, but are not limited to, cash advances including ATM withdrawals, PIN-based Debit Card transactions, money orders, balance transfers, convenience checks, drafts, fees, finance charges, purchases made on a line of credit and travelers check purchases. Cash Advances at the Casino are not eligible for rewards.
Earned Points will generally be added to your account and available for use within one week after the date of posting to the account. Point earnings are not based on purchase date but on the date the transaction is submitted/posted to us, which is usually within one week of the purchase. (International purchases may take up to 30 days to post.) Points will be itemized on the Cardmember’s periodic statement and will indicate total number of points earned, points redeemed and points carried over during the statement month.
We reserve the right to exclude from Net Purchases unauthorized Purchases and Purchases which are added to your Account after you are past due or over limit. We reserve the right to add other transactions to the list of ineligible transactions at our discretion and at any time. Any questions regarding eligibility of transactions shall be determined by us in our sole discretion. Previously awarded Points relating to ineligible transactions shall be forfeited.
If Points for credit, returns or other adjustments exceed new Purchases during a billing cycle, we will report negative Net Purchases. No retroactive Points will be awarded.
Cardmembers may redeem Points for a statement credit toward a Carnival Cruise Lines, Costa Cruises, Cunard Line, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises or The Yachts of Seabourn or an airline or hotel that posts to their Account that is equal to or greater than $50 and made within the last 180 days. The amount of Points needed to redeem will vary by transaction. To redeem points access your account at www.BarclaycardUS.com and go to the Rewards tab. The statement credit will appear on the Account within one billing cycle after the Points are redeemed. There is no maximum number of Points that may be redeemed in any billing cycle.
If any statement credit you received was awarded based on purchases not authorized by you, or if credits or returned purchases from previous statements post in any subsequent review period and such returned purchases exceed the Points value on your Account, Barclaycard may assess your Account for any statement credits previously applied to your Account. If your account is 60 or more days past due at any time, Barclaycard may, at its option, assess your Account for any statement credits previously awarded on your Account.
Cardmembers may redeem Points for Onboard amenities and packages to be delivered onboard the ship during the guest’s cruise and are only available in conjunction with an applicable cruise vacation. In the event that an item is unavailable or temporarily out of stock, the item may be substituted at Carnival Cruise Line’s discretion. Onboard gift voucher may not be redeemed for onboard credit and has no cash value. Orders for onboard amenities will be accepted up to 15 days prior to the passenger’s cruise departure date.

We reserve the right to alter, substitute or terminate all or any part of the Program or any Program Reward (“Reward”), or to modify the Terms and Conditions of the Program or Points previously earned therein for any reason in our sole discretion. In accumulating Points, you may not rely upon the continued availability of any Rewards or Point redemption level for a Reward; you may not be able to obtain all offered Rewards. Any Reward may be withdrawn or subject to increased Point redemption requirements and/or new restrictions at any time.
Should we decide to terminate the Program, we will provide not less than 30 days prior written notice to current Cardholders and reasonable options for redemption of such outstanding Points. If your Card is closed, you will no longer earn Points or be allowed to redeem outstanding Points.
