Citi® Secured Mastercard®


The Citi® Secured Mastercard® is very simple, with no rewards and no annual fee. It’s a secured credit card, which means it requires a refundable security deposit when you’re approved.

This card has a minimum security deposit of $200, with a maximum of $2,500. Your credit limit will be equivalent to the amount of your deposit. If you don’t have a bank account you can apply for this card in person at a Citibank.

If you use this card responsibly, Citi may give your security deposit back and offer an upgrade to an unsecured card, such as the Citi Simplicity® Card - No Late Fees Ever (Review).

Awesome!!!

Citi is so easy to work with. I’ve never had to call them. I love the app and it’s simplicity. I only have a $200 limit and I pay it off as I use it. When I make payments via the app it is automatic!!! I love having a citi bank card!!!
