Secured Credit Card

Build your credit

A secured credit card is a great option to build or repair your credit. A secured credit card can be used anywhere credit cards are accepted and the payment history is reported to credit bureaus, helping to establish or rebuild your credit card. The savings collateral for this card will also earn interest. 

How to open an account

To get a Dollar Bank 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 from 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM.
