Secured Card

Today, maintaining good personal credit is more important than ever. A secured credit card can help in rebuilding credit, or to build new credit for individuals just starting out. The First Progress Platinum MasterCard® Secured Credit Card is a full-feature Platinum MasterCard® with a credit line based on a security deposit rather than on a credit score. The card is designed to advance the accumulation of new information in a credit file, by reporting account activity to all three of the major national credit bureaus every month. Since it is a full-feature Platinum MasterCard®, the card provides the convenience and prestige of the worldwide MasterCard® system. First Progress Platinum MasterCard® Secured Credit Cards are issued by Synovus Bank, Columbus, GA, member FDIC.
