What does GECRB stand for?

Q. I see GECRB on my credit report. What does it mean?

Adam answers:

GECRB stands for GE Capital Retail Bank, which was the financing unit of General Electric. GECRB has since been spun off into its own company called Synchrony Bank.

Synchrony Bank / GECRB is the company that issues many store credit cards, including Walmart credit cards, JCPenney credit cards, TJ Maxx, Old Navy, Lowe’s, and many more. Synchrony Bank also offers other financing, such as Care Credit medical and dental credit. It is likely that you have a credit card issued by Synchrony Bank if you are seeing GECRB (or SYNCB) on your credit report.
