American Eagle Outfitters, founded in 1977, operates stores in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Hong Kong. Shoppers who like the trendy clothing and accessories AEO offers can score some great deals by signing up for a Real Rewards credit card issued by Synchrony Bank. The card offers perks like a 30% discount on your first purchase, 2x rewards points on all purchases, free shipping and member-only exclusives.

Once you’ve used your card, you’ll need to make a payment to keep your account in good standing. Synchrony offers you three payment options: online, by mail and over the phone. Here’s everything you need to know.

If you don’t want to register for an online account, you can use the “Pay as Guest” feature.

  1. Click “Pay as Guest” on the account login page.
  2. Enter your card number, the last four digits of your Social Security number and your billing ZIP code.
  3. Follow the prompts to complete the payment.

How To Make a Payment by Mail

You also have the option of mailing in your payment. Where you’ll mail it depends on whether you have the Real Rewards store card or Visa card. Here’s how:

  1. Write a check or purchase a money order for at least the minimum amount due.
  2. Include the payment coupon from your statement or write your account number on the check or money order so your account can be properly credited. Your payment can be delayed up to five days if you don’t include this information.
  3. Mail your payment to the address for your card type:

Although there is no charge to make a payment through the automated system, you may incur a fee if you opt to pay your bill by phone through a customer service agent.

Late Fees for American Eagle Credit Cards

It’s important to pay your American Eagle credit card bill on time each month. Payments are due by 5 p.m. ET on the due date listed on your statement. If you miss this cutoff, you can still make your payment with one of the available payment methods. However, you’ll pay a late fee of $30. The fee increases to $41 for two or more late payments in a six-month period.
