The Fifth Third Bank Secured Credit Card is a secured credit card that offers most of the same benefits and convenience of a regular credit card while building or rebuilding your credit history with every use.

This secured card doesn’t offer rewards, but it offers a few nice perks. I do think it’s nice that this card offers some unexpected treats, such as cellular telephone protection. There’s also a MasterCard Airport Concierge service.

This card can help you build your credit, but it has an annual fee and a relatively high minimum security deposit. It’s real value is consistent account reporting to the three major credit bureaus.
