To get the variable APRs you must open a credit line of at least $5,000 and have or open an American Bank checking account; the variable rate includes a discount for automatic payment from an American Bank checking account that must be established on or before the Home Equity Line of Credit is opened. If a borrower does not want to open an American Bank checking account and have automatic payment, the borrower would not be eligible for the discounted rate.  Maximum line amount is $425,000.  All APRs assume that total loans including your American Bank line, secured by an owner occupied 1-4 family residential property located within the Pennsylvania counties of Lehigh, Northampton, Carbon, Berks, Bucks, Montgomery, Lancaster, and Delaware, do not exceed 85% of the value of that property for a first or second lien.  Property insurance is required.  Flood insurance may be required. If your home is on the market for sale at the time of application or your property is held in a Trust, you are not eligible for this offer. The Home Equity Line of Credit has a 10 year draw period with a balloon payment due at maturity.

**The variable APR on the American Bank Home Equity Line of Credit is based on an Index and a Margin. The Index is based on the U.S. Prime Rate as quoted in the Wall Street Journal as published daily, plus either a Margin of 0.00% when the Loan-to-Value is up to 80% or plus a Margin of 0.25% when the Loan-to-Value is 80.1% to 85% for Home Equity Lines of Credit with automatic payment from an American Bank checking account. If automatic payment is discontinued or the borrower elects not to have the payment automatically deducted, the subsequent variable APR will increase by 0.25%. The minimum APR is 4.00% and the maximum APR is 18.00%.
