If your application for an eligible card is not approved, you may be considered for another card (as disclosed in your credit card application). If you are approved for that card, this annual fee rebate offer will apply in the amount of the annual fee, if any, of the alternate card. If you qualify, the rebate will be awarded to you and will appear as a credit against the applicable annual fee(s) within two statements. Your new credit card account must be open and in good standing at time the rebate is awarded.

For example, if your statement period is from November 8 to December 7, a purchase made on December 7 (transaction date) that is posted on December 8 (posting date) will not count for eligible spend for the December statement period.
