Discover it® Secured Credit Card

The Discover it Secured Credit Card is one of the better secured cards on the market. This card reports to all 3 credit bureaus, so as long as you use it responsibly it will help you improve your credit.

You’ll get a great amount of cash back for a secured card, especially because Discover will double what you earn after your first year. There’s no annual fee, and you’ll be able to check your FICO® Credit Score any time you’d like to see how you’re improving.

Insider Tip: Discover now offers a free credit monitoring service to anyone, even if you’re not a cardholder.
