About account plans of SC

There are two styles of account plans. One is for free withdrawal at any bank ATM. Two is for a higher interest rate. Or both of them.

About card products from SC

They have their own BC cards and co-branded cards from Samsung cards.

SC BC cards, their legacy card products offered larger benefits compared to the other card companies but discontinued most of them right after the partnership announcement with Samsung card. Still, only a few credit and check cards are available.

Note that you can't make an online overseas purchase with SC BC Visa cards, and all SC check cards.

Credit/check cards from SC Samsung card are the same as the original Samsung cards, except they added the logo and money access function on it.

SC BC Cards are the only credit cards in Korea with an English billing statement. However, the bank announced that they'll discontinue their payment card business in Korea on 1st Nov 2022. They'll issue Samsung cards and Hyundai cards instead.

I recommend this bank to you because ...

  • You can withdraw money from your SC Bank account freely at any ATM if applicable.

But you must consider these before banking with this bank ...

  • They have the oldest mainframe system among Korean banks. Hence, you won't be able to do some transactions at night time and every weekend.
