Secured Credit Card

What are the Benefits?

A secured credit card... 

  • Reports payment history to credit bureaus, enabling you to establish or rebuild your credit.
  • Is a credit card. Use it to make airline reservations, rent a car or as identification for check cashing.
  • Allows your savings collateral to earn interest.

How to Open

To get a Secured Credit Card, open a Dollar Bank savings account and make a deposit of $330 or more. A hold will be placed on your deposit and you’ll get a credit line that’s equal to 90% of your deposit hold amount. The rest of the savings balance will be available for your use, and your entire savings balance will earn interest at market rates. 

To open an account visit any Dollar Bank office, or call 1-800-242-BANK (2265) Monday - Friday 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM. 

A Secured Card is Ideal for Customers Who:

  • Need to establish credit—college students and young adults who have never had a credit card
  • Are trying to repair their credit history
  • Have been turned down for a credit card for any reason
  • Need a credit card for small expenses or to rent a car, but do not want a traditional credit card

Tips to Establish or Rebuild Your Credit History:

  • Use 30% or less of your Dollar Bank Secured Credit Card credit line and pay your balance off in full each month
  • Check your credit report and clear any inaccuracies from your report
  • Pay your bills on time
  • Avoid unnecessary applications for credit
