A How-To Guide For Opening A Savings Account

Synchrony Bank makes opening a savings account easy and quick. Here is how you open an account:

Step 1: Decide what type of account you need.

First, select the account that offers the best fit for your lifestyle. A high yield savings account from Synchrony Bank is insured and protected by FDIC insurance up to $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each ownership category. 

In addition to high yield savings accounts, you may also want to consider other products such as certificates of deposit (CDs) or money market accounts.

These deposit products offer different interest rates and levels of liquidity, so be sure to do your homework before your deposit your funds.

Step 2: Confirm your initial deposit.

Once you know what type of account you’d like to open, next decide how much money you would like to initially deposit.

Savings accounts with Synchrony Bank have no minimum balance so you can fund your account with as little as a penny.

If you wish to fund your new account electronically, you must provide an external bank account number or bank routing/transit number. 

Our savings accounts are not subject to a monthly maintenance fee so you’ll start saving money as soon as you sign up. 

Step 3: Enter your information.

The final step in opening an account is to provide your basic personal information, as required by federal law. For your convenience, you can print out an application or apply directly online.
