U.S. Bank Secured Visa® Card

For People with
No Credit



The U.S. Bank Secured Visa® Card is great for establishing credit for the first time or for repairing poor credit.

It gives you the chance to establish a line of credit, and practice paying bills on time and staying within the credit limit. This is a secured card, so you’ll need to give U.S. Bank a deposit. Your credit line will be equal to the deposit you make.

This is a rather basic card but it does come with a few benefits such as Auto Rental Collision Damage Waivers, Travel and Emergency Assistance Services, and you’ll be able to check your VantageScore Credit Score based on your TransUnion credit report for free.
