Get more from your Synovus cards


Synovus Card Alerts makes it easy to get real-time updates about your account activity.

  • Enroll your Visa® debit or credit card2 to set a dollar amount of your choice and be notified whenever any transaction is made for more than your pre-set amount.1
  • Choose other types of notifications, including alerts when your card is not present (online or over-the-phone payments), declined transaction, gas station and international purchases.

To get started, download the Synovus Card Alerts app using your Android or iOS mobile device.3

Synovus Card Alerts is separate from other alerts services you may already be enrolled in and does not require participation in Synovus Mobile Banking or Synovus Online Banking.

  • Please make sure we have up-to-date contact information at all times. You can opt out any time. Refer to your cardholder agreement for more information or read the Frequently Asked Questions.
