US Bank is finicky AF, so if they are willing to unsecure both of your cards, the odds are that you have moved beyond the need for secured cards at all and could replace them with "regular" cards.  If you close your remaining secured lines that won't graduate, they'll still be counted in your average age for the next ten years.

Hi @40thieves Thank you very much for your post. I am so excited USB upgraded both my cards. I am so happy. Last week I got approved for Apple Card. Looks like I am moving up in the ladder. But what I dont understand is Amex keep saying no. I do have an Amex Optima card that is over a year old. I can not get a new card from Amex. I have a MC from BOA that is 14 year old. I keep asking them for CLI and they keep saying no. I have no idea any more with any thing. I have decided to wait till 8/22 and see where my scores stand and try for Amex and BOA CLI. No more new Apps until 8/22.

8 Secured cards?

Mind sharing data points on them?

Ages, limits, issuing bank etc?

@GrandBay I was going to ask the exact same question.

 

OP, if you do not object, for general knowledge and for data points for people who might be in a similar boat, would you be willing to share the details on your other secured cards?

 

Totally cool if you decide against sharing.  I am very curious. :-)
