RETAIL INSTALLMENT CREDIT AGREEMENT (RETAIL CHARGE)

1. PROMISE TO PAY: “You” (meaning each existing obligor who has a VacationWiser account with Luther, and each applicant and co-applicant for credit identified on the application which is incorporated by reference into this Agreement who is approved for credit by Luther Appliance and Furniture Sales Inc. (also referred to as “us,” “we,” “our,” “Luther” and similar terms)) promise to pay to us or anyone we designate in accordance with the monthly statements we provide to you from time to time, the full amount billed for any vacation package (“Vacation”) you order, including all taxes and related fees and charges, according to the terms of this Retail Installment Credit Agreement (Retail Charge).

2. CREDIT LIMIT and SUBSEQUENT PURCHASES OF VACATIONS: You agree that we may establish a credit limit and that the balance of your credit purchases at one time will not exceed your credit limit. You will be advised of your initial credit limit at the time your account is opened. If you exceed your credit limit or if you are in default, we have the right to suspend or cancel your account. You agree that we may change your credit limit from time to time. We may do so based upon our evaluation of changes in your creditworthiness or otherwise at our discretion. You may make purchases from time to time, subject to your credit limit. However, you agree that in order to finance the purchase of a Vacation you must have a zero balance on your VacationWiser account on the date of your purchase, and that until you pay off the balance owed, you may not use your VacationWiser account to finance an additional Vacation. Purchases may be documented by an invoice or other memorandum evidencing your purchase and your agreement to finance that purchase according to the terms of this Agreement.

3. MONTHLY STATEMENTS and MONTHLY PAYMENTS FOR VACATION PURCHASES: If you finance the purchase of a Vacation (see Section 2), we will calculate your Minimum Payment Due as follows: We will add up the total of your unpaid Vacation purchase price and divide this amount by 12. The result of this division (rounded up to the next whole dollar at our option) is your required Minimum Monthly Payment Due if you finance the purchase of a Vacation. You will have a repayment period of 12 months to repay the financed Vacation in 12 substantially equal payments of principal. If you make all required payments on time and pay the total balance due in full within the first 12 months of purchase, and are not otherwise in default under this Agreement (see Section 11), we will not impose any Interest Charges on the financed purchase. If you make any of the 12 required monthly payments more than 10 days late, or any payment is returned by your financial institution for any reason, we will impose Interest Charges on the original financed amount of the purchase at the applicable rate set forth in Section 4 retroactive to the date of purchase (as described more fully in Sections 4 and 5 below). Your Minimum Monthly Payment Due under this Section 3 will not change if we impose accrued Interest Charges on the original financed vacation package (unless you are otherwise in default and we exercise our rights under Section 12 of this Agreement), although the dollar amount of your final required payment will be adjusted to include the then-remaining unpaid balance owed on the purchase and all accrued but unpaid Interest Charges, late charges, and other applicable charges. However, we will apply each of your monthly payments under this Section 3 (including any monthly payments we have already received) to accrued Interest Charges, late charges, and other permitted charges (as described in Sections7, 8 and 9) before applying monthly payments towards the unpaid balance owed on the financed purchase. Therefore, the number of payments you will be required to make in order to repay the full amount owed on a financed Vacation will increase if you do not make each of the first 12 required monthly payments under this Section 3 on time (or within 10 days of the payment due date).

4. PAYMENT REQUIREMENTS: Upon committing to and signing your order form, you are locking in the travel dates selected. This is the only way to secure your travel plans. Any deviation from the dates on the order form will result in cancellation penalties and/or change fees. Cruises and the majority of economy airline tickets are non-refundable, and subject to substantial change fees. It is always in the traveler’s best interest to finalize their travel dates before committing to signing the contractual order form.
You will start your payroll deductions based upon your spending limit. Your contributions must begin a minimum of 30 days ahead of your trip if it is a vacation that consists of a hotel or resort stay and 60 days if airline tickets or a cruise ship are involved. Please note that airline tickets must be booked in conjunction with hotel accommodations and cannot be sold separately.

5. FINANCE CHARGE ON LUTHER VACATION PURCHASES: If you finance the purchase of a Vacation and fail to pay any of the required payments described in 3 above within 10 days of the payment due date, or any payment is returned by your financial institution for any reason, you will pay a Finance Charge on the original financed Vacation, retroactive to the date of purchase, as part of your monthly payment described in Section 3 above. We will figure the Finance Charge on your account as described in this Section 4, retroactive to the billing cycle that included the date of purchase, and for each following billing cycle, until the full amount owed on the financed Vacation has been paid in full. The Finance Charge on your account is computed the following way: (a) The “Average Daily Balance Method (including new purchases)” is used. Under this method, the interest charged on your account is determined by applying the Periodic Rate to the “average daily balance” of your account. To determine the “average daily balance,” the beginning balance of your account is taken each day and any payments or credits, as well as and any unpaid finance charges, are subtracted out. Then all daily balances for the billing cycle are added together and divided by the total number days in the billing cycle. (b) the Monthly Periodic Rate is 1.9166% and the ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE is 23%. (Exception: If you are a resident of Colorado, Georgia or Tennessee at the time your account is opened, the Monthly Periodic Rate is 1.75% and the ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE IS 21%. If you are a resident of Florida or Texas at the time your account is opened the Monthly Periodic Rate is 1.5% and the ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE is 18%. If you are a resident of Arkansas at the time your account is opened the Monthly Periodic Rate is 1.41% and the ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE is 17%.)

6. NO INTEREST CHARGE: The “beginning balance” at the start of a monthly billing cycle is the same as the amount you owe as of the last day of the prior monthly billing cycle. You will not be charged an Interest Charge: (a) In a monthly billing cycle in which there is no previous balance (e.g. the previous balance shown on your statement is “zero” or a credit balance) or at the end of which there is a zero balance or a credit balance (meaning that there was no outstanding account balance at either the start or the end of the monthly billing cycle); (b) In a monthly billing cycle during which the payments and/or credits to your account (other than payments and credits attributable to amounts not included in the beginning balance for that billing cycle) are equal to or exceed the beginning balance for that billing cycle. or (c) On new purchases during the billing cycle in which the purchases are first added to your account. In addition, no Interest Charges (including credit service charge or interest) will be charged to your account for the financed purchase provided that: i) you make each of your 12 required monthly payments (see Section 3 above), in full, within 10 days of the payment due date shown on your monthly statements and ii) you are not otherwise in default under the terms of this Agreement. If you fail to meet any of these conditions, Interest Charges that have accrued on the original financed cost of the purchase from the time of purchase at the rates set forth in Section 4 will be charged to your account, as described in Section 4 above. Your statement will reflect the amount of any accrued Interest Charges that you owe.

7. ANNUAL FEE: There is no annual fee.

8. LATE PAYMENT FEE: You agree to pay a late payment fee of $20.00 on each monthly payment due which is not paid in full within 10 days (15 days for California residents) of the due date shown on your monthly billing statement unless applicable law limits this fee to a lesser sum in which case you agree to pay the maximum fee that may be imposed. Exception: Texas residents will not be charged a late fee. Virginia residents will not be charged more than 5% of the amount of the payment.

9. RETURNED CHECK FEE: You agree to pay a returned check fee if any check or other instrument for payment on your account is returned unpaid in the amount of $20.00, unless applicable law limits this fee to a lesser sum in which case you agree to pay the maximum fee that may be imposed. Unless prohibited by applicable law, this fee will be added to the unpaid balance under the Agreement. Exceptions: District of Columbia residents: you agree to pay a fee equal to the greater of $100 or 2 times the face amount of the returned check provided the check remains unpaid for 30 days after we mail you notice of the returned check in accordance with D.C. Code Ann. § 28-3152. Maryland residents: you agree to pay a fee of $15.00 if any check for payment on your account is returned unpaid on a second presentment. California and Texas residents: you agree to pay a returned check fee of $15.00.

10. REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY: Vacations are non-refundable. Upon written notice of cancellation of any Vacation, customer is responsible for any stated fees and other permitted charges as part of cancellation policy. All monies in our possession will be applied toward those stated fees. Any additional monies on account due to customer may only be applied toward future travel credit on VacationWiser.com. Credit must be used within 1-year of the original cancellation date. To obtain such a refund, you must notify us at Luther Appliance & Furniture Sales, Inc. 129 Oser Avenue, Hauppauge, NY 11788, or telephone us at 1-800-358-6466.

11. ALLOCATION OF PAYMENTS: We will allocate your payments to your outstanding balance (after deducting amounts owed for Interest Charges, late charges, and other permitted charges) to purchases in the order in which we post them to your account.

12. DEFAULT: You will be in default under this Agreement if: (1) you fail to make a minimum payment within 10 days of its due date; (2) you break any of the promises in this Agreement or in any other written agreement you have with us; (3) you have made any false or misleading statements in connection with your credit application or this Agreement; (4) a petition is filed by or against you under any bankruptcy or insolvency law; or (5) you die or become unable to manage your affairs.

13. CONSEQUENCES OF DEFAULT: If you default, we will have the right to require immediate payment of everything you owe us, after we provide you with any notice of default and opportunity to cure default required by applicable law. If we refer your account to an attorney for collection, unless prohibited by applicable law, you also agree to pay us our reasonable attorneys’ fees of up to twenty percent (20%) of the amount you owe us, provided the attorney is not our salaried employee. You agree to pay us court costs and disbursements unless prohibited by applicable law. Notice to District of Columbia residents: We will not charge you any attorneys’ fees as a consequence of your default. For Texas residents, if you default, or we believe in good faith that you are not going to keep your promises under this Agreement, we can demand that you immediately pay all you owe. You agree that we do not have to give you notice that we intend to demand or are demanding immediate payment of all you owe.

14. NATURE OF YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES: Each person that signs the credit application for this Agreement, this Agreement, or any invoice or other memorandum evidencing a purchase made according to the terms of this Agreement, is liable (and if there is more than one person then each of you is jointly and severally liable) to pay all amounts owed, in full, and to keep all of the other promises in this Agreement. You are responsible for the amounts you owe on this Agreement even if you suffer a total loss of the goods purchased under this Agreement due to theft, confiscation, fire or other physical damage.

23. ARBITRATION CLAUSE PLEASE REVIEW - IMPORTANT - AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS 

THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION PROVISION WILL APPLY TO YOUR AGREEMENT, UNLESS: (A) YOU ARE A “COVERED BORROWER” AS DEFINED BY THE FEDERAL MILITARY LENDING ACT, 10 U.S.C. § 987; OR (B) YOU ARE AFFORDED PROTECTIONS UNDER STATE OR FEDERAL LAW THAT PROHIBIT THE LENDER FROM REQUIRING YOUR SUBMISSION OF A DISPUTE TO ARBITRATION.

1. EITHER YOU OR WE MAY CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN US DECIDED BY ARBITRATION AND NOT IN COURT OR BY JURY TRIAL. 2. IF A DISPUTE IS ARBITRATED, YOU WILL GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. 3. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. Any claim or dispute, whether in contract, tort, statute or otherwise (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the claim or dispute), between you and us or our employees, agents, successors or assigns, which arise out of or relate to your credit application, purchase or condition of this vehicle, this contract or any resulting transaction or relationship (including any such relationship with third parties who do not sign this contract) shall, at your or our election, be resolved by neutral, binding arbitration and not by a court action. Any claim or dispute is to be arbitrated by a single arbitrator on an individual basis and not as a class action. You expressly waive any right you may have to arbitrate a class action. You may choose one of the following arbitration organizations and its applicable rules: the National Arbitration Forum, Box 50191, Minneapolis, MN 55405-0191 (www.arbforum.com), the American Arbitration Association, 335 Madison Ave., Floor 10, New York, NY 10017-4605 (www.adr.org), or any other organization that you may choose subject to our approval. You may get a copy of the rules of these organizations by contacting the arbitration organization or visiting its website. Arbitrators shall be attorneys or retired judges and shall be selected pursuant to the applicable rules. The arbitrator shall apply governing substantive law in making an award. The arbitration hearing shall be conducted in the federal district in which you reside unless the Creditor-Seller is a party to the claim or dispute, in which case the hearing will be held in the federal district where this contract was executed. We will advance your filing, administration, service or case management fee and your arbitrator or hearing fee all up to a maximum of $1000, which may be reimbursed by decision of the arbitrator at the arbitrator’s discretion. Each party shall be responsible for its own attorney, expert and other fees, unless awarded by the arbitrator under applicable law. If the chosen arbitration organization’s rules conflict with this clause, then the provisions of this clause shall control. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on all parties, except that in the event the arbitrator’s award for a party is $0 or against a party is in excess of $100,000, or includes an award of injunctive relief against a party, that party may request a new arbitration under the rules of the arbitration organization by a three-arbitrator panel. The appealing party requesting new arbitration shall be responsible for the filing fee and other arbitration costs subject to a final determination by the arbitrators of a fair apportionment of costs. Any arbitration under this Arbitration Clause shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. § 1 et. seq.) and not by any state law concerning arbitration. You and we retain any rights to self-help remedies, such as repossession. You and we retain the right to seek remedies in small claims court for disputes or claims within that court’s jurisdiction, unless such action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. Neither you nor we waive the right to arbitrate by using self-help remedies or filing suit. Any court having jurisdiction may enter judgment on the arbitrator’s award. This clause shall survive any termination, payoff or transfer of this contract. If any part of this Arbitration Clause, other than waivers of class action rights, is deemed or found to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder shall remain enforceable. If a waiver of class action rights is deemed or found to be unenforceable for any reason in a case in which class action allegations have been made, the remainder of this arbitration clause shall be unenforceable.
