So my NFCU secured card is on the way.......

I'm starting out with a $500 CL. My plan is to increase my CL by $500, every 2 weeks until I get it up to $2-3k. My question for everyone, what is a good limit with them to have so that when I graduate, I stand to get a higher unsecured CL?

 

Thanks in advance,

$5,000 is a good credit limit to aim for. That is usually the requirement for a signature card, so make that your goal.

 

Also, you are not just helping your credit. You are creating a good savings plan.

 

Nice job rebuilding your credit.
