Re: credit card help

Is it a bad thing that it shows up as secured or a good thing ?

I was approved at Chase for $500 on my FU when my Disco was reporting $600 secured. My scores were in the 730's if my memory serves me. I would tend to consider it a bad thing, though I doubt that lenders consider it too heavily if you don't have any baddies.

Re: credit card help

Being secured doesn't affect your FICO scores. Lenders can opt to take it into account, though.
