YES it does! ...They started reporting secured about 5 months ago.
It matters not what they report ..secured vs unsecured... it's the same damn thing for scoring purposes. It's like a card that gets closed at consumer's request vs closed at credit grantor's request - it doesn't really matter unless a loan officer is manually reviewing your report and even then it carries little weight.
Obvious they can't comprehend. It does not matter. Maybe after couple years some will catch on. Even in manual review. Payment history trumps what kind of card you got.
I hope to apply for mortgage which will certainly be a manual review. I think a secured card will not be favorable if not closed in good standing on the credit report?
No cards will be favorable if not closed in good standing. Secured cards are just as real as unsecured cards, the only difference is you are effectively collateralizing the line of credit with secured cards.

Ok it's all good. thanks
