1. The Crystal Visa Credit Card is subject to credit approval and is offered in City National Bank offices only in the states of California, Georgia, Nevada, New York and Tennessee.

2. Benefits are subject to change at any time without notice.

3. LOUNGE CLUB is an independent airport lounge access program which is neither owned by nor otherwise affiliated with City National Bank. City National Bank will automatically enroll as members in the LOUNGE CLUB program a maximum of 2 of the Crystal Visa cardholders. The owner(s) of the Crystal Visa account as well as authorized users are eligible for the 2 available memberships. The owner(s) of the Crystal Visa Card account will determine to which cardholders the 2 memberships will be provided. Each cardholder must be least 18 years of age. If you are approved for a Crystal Visa account, please review the Addendum to Guide to Benefits – Airport Lounge Access as well as the participating lounge rules in the directory that will be sent to you with your LOUNGE CLUB card, or visit www.loungeclub.com for membership limitations, restrictions and requirements prior to use. The Airport Lounge Access benefit is subject to change and cancellation at any time.

4. Points are earned on net purchases only (purchases less returns and credits). PIN-based and ATM transactions do not earn Points. You will earn 1 Point for each $1 of net purchases. You will earn an additional 2 Points (for a total of 3 Points) for each $1 of net purchases made at merchants that classify their merchant location for Visa in any of the following categories: airlines, hotels, taxis, limousines, rental cars, trains, buses, gas, restaurants, fast food and takeout food dining establishments. We do not determine whether merchants correctly identify and bill transactions as being made at locations in each particular category. However, we do reserve the right to determine which purchases qualify for the additional 2 Points on category purchases. Purchases not eligible to receive the additional 2 Points on category purchases include, but are not limited to, purchases made at superstores, warehouse clubs, discount stores and their affiliates. Online and catalog purchases are not eligible to receive the additional 2 Points on category purchases unless the merchants have correctly identified and billed the transactions. See the City National Rewards Program Terms, Conditions and Program Rules and FAQs on cnb.com/rewards for details.

5. If your account is closed for any reason, any unredeemed Points remaining on the date of account closure are forfeited and expire. If the Rewards Program is terminated for any reason, you will be notified, in which event you will have at least 60 days to redeem your Points. After this redemption period, any unredeemed Points will be forfeited.

Subject to federal law restrictions that are applicable to executive officers, directors and other insiders of City National Bank, the City National Crystal Visa Card account has a no pre-set spending limit. This does not mean that all transactions will be approved. Rather, individual transactions will be evaluated by City National Bank based on various factors, such as your spending and payment patterns, suspected fraud, your account history, your credit report information, payment resources, and safety and soundness considerations. If City National Bank authorizes a transaction that causes your account to exceed its Credit Access Line, then the excess amount will be added to and paid as a part of your minimum payment due on the account. If you are approved for a Crystal Visa account, see your Cardholder Agreement for further details.
