Stick with the secured card from CapOne, but don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Find out your FICOs (get at least one, if not both reports from here at myFICO), then we could see where to go from there. It may be worth it to wait a little while, and rather than get stuck in subprime toy card hell (where they all want to give 3 digit limits), I've seen the best to wait a while with one secured card, then get a nice prime card...
