After reading some of the posts here, I was worried I would be declined for the B of A secured, but I just saw the funds get swiped from my B of A savings acct. WOOHOO! Only a week or two and I should have the card!!! :-)

Re: Approved B of A Secured!

Thanks! :-)  Just to make sure, I should let 9% come on the statement but pay before due date? If I pay before statement drops nothing will be reported to the CRAs right?

Tons of Debt, I always try to pay before the statement date, because I believe that most will send the updates to the CRA's after the statement date.  There are always exception to that rule however.

Re: Approved B of A Secured!

I'm confused... I thought the 1-9% means that you need to have utilized 1-9% of the card when you get your statement... i.e. your paper statement will show that you've used 1-9%.
 
I thought if you pay before it drops the paper statement will report $0 and thus the card will not be reported to the CRAs...
