Huntington® Secured Credit Card FAQs
Answer: A secured credit card is a type of credit card that requires a one-time, refundable security deposit from the cardholder. The deposit is used as collateral, which assures the credit card issuer that you can pay your bill when it’s due. The activity on your secured credit card is also reported to the three main credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion). That way, when you practice credit-building habits, you may help strengthen your credit score over time.
Answer: As mentioned, to open a secured credit card, you must make a deposit that will equal your credit limit. Once your deposit is made, you can use your secured credit card just as you would a traditional unsecured credit card—make purchases almost anywhere and make payments toward your credit card balance each month. After seven months, we’ll let you know if you’re eligible to upgrade to the Huntington® Cashback Credit Card. Once you upgrade to the new card or close your Secured Credit Card and pay off your balance, you'll get your deposit back.
Answer: Both secured and unsecured credit cards function in the same way—receive a set credit limit, use your card to complete purchases, and make payments on the card each month. Both have interest rates, so if you carry a balance on your card month to month, you’ll be charged interest, increasing the amount of money you owe to your credit card issuer.
Unsecured credit cards don’t require a deposit to open an account, meaning the credit card issuer is assuming a higher level of risk and often won’t be reimbursed for missed payments. For this reason, unsecured credit cards are harder to qualify for. Unsecured credit cards also tend to come with more attractive benefits, like rewards, cash back, lower fees, and lower interest rates.
Answer: Yes, secured credit cards could help improve your credit score when used responsibly and when credit card issuers report your secured credit card activity to the three main credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion).
Answer: No, the Huntington Secured Credit Card does not have any maintenance fees.

Answer: You earn cash back for all purchases made on your card. You'll earn 1% cash back rewards for every $1.00 in net purchases (purchases less returns) on your Huntington Secured Credit Card.
Answer: If you are enrolled in the Automatic redemption option, your rewards are automatically redeemed for a statement credit at the end of each billing cycle. It may take us up to one complete billing cycle to implement your authorization or to cancel any prior authorization you have provided to us. Statement credits are not a payment. Please remember to submit your normal monthly payment before your next due date. Cash back redemptions for a deposit into any Huntington or other financial institution checking or savings account are generated as an ACH deposit to the designated account typically within three business days of the redemption request.
