SunTrust Secured Card

Build or Rebuild Credit with a Secured Card

Secured CardGet the card that gives you more, while building, or rebuilding, your credit.

The SunTrust Secured Credit Card offers the conveniences and benefits of a credit card, like earning rewards on purchases, while you work to build or to repair your credit history and credit score. And you’ll get all the outstanding service and personal attention you’d expect from a bank like SunTrust.

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.

  • 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 if you want, you can even earn rewards.
  • 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.
  • 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.
