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).
