Fifth Third Bank DUO Card®


All You Need is One.®

Want one card that can do it all? The Fifth Third Bank DUO Card® is a credit and a debit card1 in one–giving you the ultimate in convenience, security, and financial flexibility.

With a standard debit card, money is withdrawn from your checking account no matter whether you choose debit or credit at the register. But with DUO, if you choose credit, the money is applied to your line of credit–just like a regular credit card.
