  • Any charges incurred during the current payment period, if paid in full during this payment period, will incur no interest charges.
  • Because the payment of all charges under Revolving Grace would activate Same as Cash and therefore pay off the loan, the Revolving Grace feature does not really come into play in this combination until after the Same as Cash period has expired. So the loan is Same as Cash until Same as Cash expiration and then it is Revolving Grace.

All interest in excess of such amount must be refunded or credited to the borrower.

All interest in excess of such amount must be refunded or credited to the borrower. (c) To calculate the amount of the refund of unearned interest, an authorized lender must consider any installments that were deferred.
