SunTrust Secured Card

Build Credit with a Secured Credit Card

The SunTrust Secured Credit Card offers the conveniences and benefits of a credit card, like earning cash back on qualifying purchases, while you work to build your credit history.

The SunTrust Secured Credit Card rewards you with 2% cash back on the first $6,000 spent annually on qualifying gas and grocery store purchases and UNLIMITED 1% cash back on all other qualifying purchases. Plus, you'll get all the outstanding service and personal attention you'd expect from a bank like SunTrust.1

Call 800.SUNTRUST or visit your local SunTrust branch to discuss your financial needs and begin your application process.

Your SunTrust Secured Credit Card looks just like any other card and you can use it anywhere MasterCard® is accepted.

  • Builds or establishes credit. When you use your card, we report your payment history to the major credit bureaus, helping you to build or restore your credit.
  • Works just like a regular credit card. A Secured Credit Card gives you the ability to do things like rent a car with ease and make purchases with a sense of security. It also provides additional benefits such as Purchase Assurance and Extended Warranty. And you'll earn cash back.
  • Helps control your spending. Once you're approved, you will establish your Secured Credit Card credit limit by opening a SunTrust Secured Savings Account with a one-time deposit. The minimum deposit amount is $300 and the maximum can be up to the total of your approved credit limit.

Earn unlimited cash back while you work to build your credit history.

Earn unlimited cash back for the money you spend every day, and you’re automatically enrolled in the program when we approve you for a SunTrust Secured Credit Card and you open a SunTrust Secured Savings Account.

  • Earn 2% Cash Back on the first $6,000 spent annually on gas and grocery store qualifying purchases.1 Once you reach the $6,000 annual cap, you’ll earn 1% on all qualifying purchases for gas and groceries without a spending cap. The cap resets each new calendar year.1
  • In addition, earn an Unlimited 1% on all other qualifying purchases such as dining out, movie tickets and dry-cleaning. Or, maximize your cash back with recurring payments such as cable, internet, phone and more.1

As a bonus, each time you call to redeem your Cash Rewards into a regular SunTrust checking, savings, or money market account, you earn an additional 10% bonus on the cash back redeemed (Excludes Secured Savings Account).1 For example, redeem $50, and earn an additional $5.

Be sure you sign up for SunTrust Online banking for quick access to your account information and cash back balances.

Complete an application by calling 800.SUNTRUST or visiting a branch.

Your Secured Credit Card qualification will be based on things like your credit history and other factors. Your initial deposit acts as your credit limit. Once you're approved, you'll be given a maximum credit limit. You can deposit any amount between $300 and your approved credit limit. For example, if you're approved for a credit limit of $1,000, but only want to deposit $500, your credit limit will be $500.

After your application is approved:

  • Open your savings account. After you're approved, your next step is to open and fund your Secured Card Savings Account.
  • Check your mailbox. Once your savings account is funded, you'll receive your card in the mail.
  • Activate your card. You'll be able to start using it immediately.
