Secured MasterCard

For those looking to establish, build or rebuild credit

On track and moving forward

Our secured MasterCard offers most of the same benefits and convenience of a regular credit card while building or rebuilding your credit history with every use.

Key benefits of a Secured MasterCard

  • Start with as little as a $500 deposit into a Secured Sandia Area savings account that earns dividends with balances over $100.
  • Your credit line is tied to the amount of money in your savings - up to $2,000.
  • Purchases made on your secured credit card will be charged to your card and not deducted from your savings account.
  • Make monthly payments on time and you will start to build or rebuild credit.
  • Important account information shared with major credit bureaus–helping you build your credit history.

Your MasterCard is a convenient, powerful and safe payment tool. Keep it safe by taking some common-sense precautions.

  • Sign the back of your card immediately to help protect your card from unauthorized use.
  • Always protect your debit card and keep it in a safe place, just as you would cash, credit cards or checks.
  • Do not leave your debit card lying around the house or on your desk at work.
  • If your card is lost or stolen, or you suspect it is being used fraudulently, report it immediately.
  • If your card is lost or stolen, your card will be canceled and a new card will be ordered for you.
  • Always take sales receipts. Hold on to receipts from your transactions. Don't throw them in public trashcans or even in your own trash without first shredding them. Crooks are known to "dumpster-dive" for documents that contain personal information.
  • Memorize your PIN and do not write it on your card.
  • Don't choose a PIN a smart thief could figure out, such as letters corresponding to your birth date or your phone number.
  • Never give your PIN to anyone, keep it private.
  • Always know how much money you have in your account and review your monthly statements carefully.
  • Keep your receipts in one place for easy retrieval and better oversight of your account.
  • Never give your card number over the phone unless you initiated the call and are certain that the recipient is legitimate.
