Credit Card Glossary: Terms and Definitions
While their chief purpose is to encourage thrift by paying interest dividends on savings, savings banks can also issue credit cards. A savings bank can be chartered at the state or the federal level. State savings banks are regulated by the banking agency of the state where it is headquartered; federal savings banks are regulated by the federal Office of Thrift Supervision.
