Secret to 1% payment Cash Back
This is the total payment we received from you; it is also shown on your statement.
The Purchase Tracker keeps track of the total dollar amount of your purchases less any eligible payments that you make. Balance transfers, cash advances, fees and interest are not included in the Purchase Tracker because they are not considered purchases. When you make a payment, the Purchase Tracker is reduced by that amount until it reaches $0.
3. Eligible Payment $0.00
Your payment is eligible up to the amount in your Purchase Tracker as long as you pay at least your minimum due amount. If your payment is less than or equal to the amount in your Purchase Tracker, you earn cash back on your total payment. If your payment is greater than the amount in your Purchase Tracker, you will earn cash back only on the amount up to how much is in the Purchase Tracker. The rest of your payment will not earn cash back.
4. Cash Back Earned on the Eligible Payment: $0.00
You earn 1% cash back on your eligible payment. This amount is 1% of your Eligible Payment in Step 3.
5. Ending Purchase Tracker: $500.00
The Ending Purchase Tracker is equal to the Purchase Tracker amount in Step 2 minus your Eligible Payment amount in Step 3.

So if I make $200 purchase after the the current statement and I decide to pay the entire balance in full before the next statement ($700), only $500 that is currently "due" is eligible for 1% cash back. I hope this helps people understand how to earn the 2nd 1% on this card.
