What's the best card to get?

I was thinking about maybe applying for secured card, to build my credit. I think it needs some work.

Thought on what kinda card i should get.

The first thing that pops into my head is a secured card from BOA.  That tends to be a popular card here and it unsecures after 9-12 months.  I would also check into a secured card with a CU.

 

Some other popular ones include:

 

Wells Fargo

National City

Citibank

US Bank

 

I'm not sure if these cards unsecure like the BOA.  Keep us informed on your progress.
