Do you get your money back from a secured credit card

Answered By: Lawrence Foster Date: created: Nov 10 2021

Reality: The security deposit on your secured credit card is fully refundable — you will get your security deposit money back, so long as you pay your balance in full. With the Discover it® Secured card, you also will get your security deposit back once you “graduate” to an unsecured credit card.

Is it bad to close a secured credit card

Answered By: Wyatt Ross Date: created: Feb 21 2022

If your secured credit card account is significantly older than your other accounts, closing it could lower the average age of your accounts and hurt your credit score. Closing your secured credit may also affect your credit utilization ratio. Secured credit cards usually have low credit lines.

How long should you keep a secured credit card

Answered By: Keith Reed Date: created: Mar 21 2022

So, we recommend keeping the secured card for at least a year. After 12 months of positive activity (never spending more than 20% of the available limit and paying on time), you should start looking closely at your score. If it is above 650, you have a very good chance.

Method 1 Closing a Secured Credit Card

  • Call your lender. Look for the customer service number on the back of your credit card and call to cancel your account.
  • Collect your deposit. The lender has a deposit on your secured credit card, and owes that amount back to you once the account is closed.
  • Cut up your card.
