How it works

Grow your credit history or improve your credit score while earning rewards like Cash Back.

  • Your savings account secures your credit card
    When you apply for the TD Cash Secured Card, you'll also open a TD Simple Savings account to hold your security deposit.2 This means money in the savings account is held as collateral for the card
  • Your savings deposit is your credit line
    Once approved for the secured card, you'll open a Simple Savings account and have 15 days to deposit funds. These funds will be your credit line. So if you deposit $500, the limit on your card will be $500
  • Your savings account will be frozen, so don't overfund it
    Only deposit the amount you are approved for. If you are approved for $500 and deposit $700, your credit line will still be $500
  • Once you fund your card, you'll receive it in the mail
    When your savings account is opened, funded and frozen, TD Bank will mail your new secured card to you. Activate it and start building your credit
  • Use it just like any credit card
    Make purchases and earn rewards, all with the same convenience and security of a TD Bank Credit Card. Then, pay your bill each month
  • The key is to pay your balance on time each month
    If you use and maintain the card and keep it in good standing, you may be eligible to graduate to an unsecured TD Bank Credit Card2
