If you do not pay the full amount of an installment when due, the unpaid portion of that installment will thereafter accrue interest as of the first day of the next statement period at the rate then in force for purchase transactions If your account falls four (4) billing cycles past due, this program will terminate and the unpaid balance will accrue interest at the rate then in force for purchase transactions What is the rate then in force for purchase transactions? Lengthy search shows it’s 19.99% Is this effective annual, effective monthly, effective daily or what?

Sears credit card interest rate is 19.99% per year, compounded monthly So this is a nominal rate. The effective monthly rate is 19.99/12 = 1.66% per month So the effective annual rate is (1.0166) 12 – 1 = 22% Pay in 36 equal monthly installments, interest free, until September 2013? What happens if you take up their offer of:

12 3 12 131414 36... Suppose you buy $5000 of Sears stuff this September, how much will you pay every month? Pay in 36 equal monthly installments, interest free, until September 2013 A After 12 months’ you’ve paid 12A, so you still owe $5000-12A

12 3 12 131414 36... Pay in 36 equal monthly installments, interest free, until September 2013 A After 12 months’ you’ve paid 12A, so you still owe $5000-12A So 5000 - 12A = A(P/A, 0.0166,24) = 19.66 A So 5000 = (19.66 + 12) A = 31.66 A So A = $158

12 3 12 131414 36... Pay in 36 equal monthly installments, interest free, until September 2013 $158 What uniform interest rate is this equivalent to? $5000 = 158 (P/A, i, 36) So (P/A, i, 36) = 5000/158 = 31.645 So i = 0.8% per month, which is equivalent to 10% per year You can get a line of credit at 6 – 8 % per year
