How to Close Synchrony Bank Account?

No matter with which bank you have your bank account. Being the customer of the bank you always have the right to close it down. In some cases, if you are closing too early then the bank will charge you the account closing charges. In this guide, I will tell you how you can close your Synchrony Bank account.

The process is very simple but make sure you don’t have any negative balance pending in your account. Because if you have any then the bank will not allow you to close the account. In such cases clear the dues and negative balances and then approach the bank.
