CareCredit Mastercard Upgrades
CareCredit is a health care credit card. CareCredit customer service representatives told us that CareCredit cards are not initially approved and issued as Mastercards. Once your CareCredit account has been open for at least six months and is considered in good standing, you may inquire about upgrading your CareCredit account to a Mastercard-branded card. Available credit and interest rates will vary by individual account holder. We confirmed this information with CareCredit’s issuing bank, Synchrony Bank.
CareCredit Application Process
While you cannot apply for a CareCredit Mastercard, you can apply for CareCredit and seek an upgrade after six months of account activity in good standing. Keep in mind that you cannot apply for CareCredit at an America’s Best location. To apply for CareCredit, visit the CareCredit website or call (800) 677-0718.
