Your payments (cost) will equal the amount financed. The Optional Equal Monthly Payments shown in the table are equal to the amount financed divided by the number of months in the promotional period and are greater than the required minimum monthly payment that will be shown on your billing statement for this promotional purchase. If you have any additional balance on your account, even paying each Optional Equal Monthly Payment may not pay off the Total Amount Financed within the promotional period, and interest may be charged to your account from the purchase date.
