Cancel the first credit card I ever had because it's secure
I have had a capital one secured card for about a year and a half. I pay on time every time. My credit score is going up. I have in recent months been approved for a Merrick Bank credit card $700 CL, Discover It card $1200 CL, Zales $1200 CL and a Davids Bridal $1500. My secured card CL is $300. It's the first card I have ever gotten. I would like to close it and possibly get a capital one unsecured card. If I call them would they be able to offer me an unsecured card based on my history with them and would they have to run my credit? Also, would closing this card hurt my credit since it's the oldest credit card I have?
