SunTrust converting to MasterCard

SunTrust Bank, which has 10 offices in the Columbus market, said it recently began converting all of its debit and ATM cards from the Visa brand to MasterCard.

The Atlanta-based financial institution said the move is free to customers and that it should improve security and convenience. Features include:

-- Zero liability for unauthorized purchases.

-- Warranties of most manufacturers are extended for up to a year.

-- Theft and damage protection for 90 days on most transactions.

-- A “satisfaction guarantee” that offers refunds up to $250 should a merchant not accept your returned item within 60 days of buying it.
