Re: Nobody laugh...but

That is an excellent start and you should be very pleased.  My son, who is just a student but earns money through his research job on campus, got a $300 limit USAA card as his first credit card ever during his first year of college.  A year after that he applied for another card with them and they gave him a second card with a $4,000 limit.

 

Good things like that are in store for you !

Re: Nobody laugh...but

I started with a 200 dollar secured card from the worst card in the world. So you getting approved for that is a blessing. Make sure you never spend more than 50 bucks or so and for your first purchase let a very small balance report. Then for the remaining balances pay in full. Within 4 to 6 months it will be at 800 or more. Well no guarantees but there's a good chance.
