Bank of America = 9 months

National City = 12 Months

US Bank = 12 Months and 680 credit score required

try your local credit union maybe

Re: what is a good secrured credit card?

I have not personally ever had a secured card. However, CreditAddict has provided good recommendations. I can personally vouch for the US Bank one as I know many who have it, the Bank of America one I know about it, heard about it and seems to be a good one and I have heard of the National City one being recommended to alot of post BK people as a sympathetic bank.

You are welcome and best of luck to you. If I may recommend to you on a personal note, go with US Bank, they are a good bank, they treat you right, they have excellent customer service and they will reward you for being responsible. You will have a better chance of growth with them. Just saying. Good luck either way.

I thought about creating a new thread, but just added to the existing one. There may be more information applicable to you there as well.
