Discover it secured graduated today!

I see this topic quite frequently so I wasn’t sure if should post but someone encouraged me to do so...

 

so I got a Discover secured card exactly 7 months ago - my 7 month statement cut yesterday.

 

i starte pd with a $200 deposit as I wasn’t planning on using the card just wanted to try and build a relationship with Discover.

 

I used the card pretty randomly. I’d love to say there was a plan but there wasn’t. The only plan was paying it in full frequently.

 

I messed up and left balances of 50% or more twice and more than 30% one time. I started with a score of 570 seven months ago and now I’m a 595. 

 

I got CLI to $2,000 and got the email for the deposit... This card really is as good as they say it is!
