Fed Makes Credit Card Agreements Available Online
As one of the provisions of the Credit CARD Act, credit card issuers are now required to post their account agreements online and to supply them to the Federal Reserve. This week, the Fed used this information to debut a searchable online database of credit card agreements at www.federalreserve.gov/creditcardagreements/.
More than 300 card agreements are represented on the site, as all issuers who have more than 10,000 accounts are required to submit this information and update it quarterly. Each agreement contains general credit terms and conditions, along with fee and pricing information. If you need to find your agreement, the database allows searches by issuing bank, which you can usually find on the back of your credit card or your monthly statement.
