? about secured CCS again please

For the credit limit if I deposit a higher amount. Does it show that on my CR and if you have a higher CL does it mean anything point wise or for any lenders looking at it? Would I be better putting on $2000 say compared to $300 on either an orchard bank or bank of america? TY

Assuming it reports on your CR, yes, higher limits are better for your FICO score.

Of course, if you take a broader view of your financial situation, one must ask the question of whether there are better things you could do with $2000 than put it up for collateral for a larger secured card. If not, then two $1000 secured cards would probably help your credit score over time more than one $2000 card.
