***Upon approval, a letter will be mailed acknowledging your new account. For details on Rewards Program Rules, please visit https://Southshorebank.myapexcard.com/apply and select Rewards Terms and Conditions. Redemption options are subject to change without notice. We group similar merchant category codes into Purchase Categories that are used to calculate the stated cash back rewards. We make every effort to include all relevant merchant category codes in the list Purchase Categories. However, even though a merchant or the items that it sells may appear to fit within a Purchase Category, the merchant may not provide us with the merchant code that will fall within that Purchase Category. Because of this, we cannot guarantee that a purchase will qualify for more than the standard 1 (one) percent cash back as any purchase where a merchant uses a category code outside of the eligible Purchase Category does not qualify for additional cash back.
