Need help/tips. Orchard secured card

Filed BK in 11/2004, released 3/2005.

 

My first rebuild card was in 11/07 for an Orchard Bank secured card. I only put $200.00 in. I just paid it off and want some help/suggestions of how to close this and get an unsecured one from them. My AF on this is $39.00 I think.

 

Anyway..I have grown since this and want to get rid of the secured card.

 

My current cards are:

 

Orchard secured  $200

Cap One              $750 (due for CLI)

JC Penny's          $550

Old Navy              $450 (due for CLI)

Gap                     $450 (due for CLI)

PayPal                $300

WalMart Discover $2K  (due to CLI?)

 

 

 

 

So, what should I do to benefit the most? I really would prefer to convert the secured to unsecured, but have been told byCS they do not do that.

Wow, GE likes you. I would ask for the CLI on the cards you think it's time for and if you get $200 worth of CLI, close the HSBC. Since GE loves you so much, maybe a sams discover, Ebay Mastercard? they would probably be higher limits then another HSBC unsecured.
