Your Discover it® Secured may graduate to unsecured as soon as eight months after account opening, assuming you pay your monthly bills on time and otherwise manage your finances responsibly.

Can you switch a secured credit card to unsecured

Answered By: Logan Robinson Date: created: Feb 12 2021

Perhaps you find a secured card you like, or there’s an unsecured version from the same bank that offers rewards you like. You can always apply for the secured card and, when ready, apply for the unsecured one as well. Some issuers will agree to transfer the credit line of the secured card to your new unsecured one.
