Will I qualify for USAA secured?

I know they pull EQ. My FICO is 632.

AAofA is 5 years

Utilization is around 10%


The Negatives:

Paid judgment 2010

Paid collection 2010 (see above)

unpaid collection (about to send a DV)

Multiple 30 day lates on auto loan PAID/closed 2009

1 Cap1 charge off & 2 HSBC charge offs-all paid


The Good:

Belk card- $400 CL opened 6/12

BofA secured card $500 CL opened 8/12

time share NEVER late -9 years old


I have read that I need 2-3 CC to rebuild. Don't want Cap1, obviously.

Was denied Wal-mart prior to getting my secured BofA


I think I am a partial member with USAA. Have the credit monitoring & just opened a small checking & savings with them.

Where should I go from here? Any card suggestions? Thanks in advance!

AFAIK Secured CCs aren't an option for partial members. Id call their cs to be sure of thatfirst.

I'm going to get the insurance first & become a full member before I apply.

If I apply for the regular card, they may counter with the secured, right?


Any other store or CC recommendations?

They countered with a secured card when I was denied a USAA amex. I had a similar score to yours but no recent derogatory.
