Submit your completed application for the Guaranteed Secured Mastercard.

Provide Security Funds

Once you’re approved, provide the required security funds – these act as collateral and help show us you’re committed to using the card responsibly.

Build Credit

Build credit by making your payments on time and staying within your credit limit. Unlike a pre-paid card, we’ll report your credit card activity to the credit reporting agencies monthly.
