I just recieved my Orchard secured card with a 200 dollar limit. I activated the card today. My sole purpose with this card is to begin establishing a positve history. How exactly should I use this card? Pay one bill per month with the card and then immediately pay it off? Really need suggestions on how to use this card to get some good history established. I opened it today and the statement closing day is on the 10th of each month.
