According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), CareCredit «misled some consumers during the registration process by failing to provide adequate instructions clearly clarifying the terms of deferred interest loans.» These loans earn interest from the date of purchase for the entire period of action; If cardholders do not pay the full debt before the end of this period, they must pay all accrued interest (not just interest on the balance).
