TYVM! now i have another question. With rebuilding credit and improving your credit score, when chargeing something is it better to buy something that is a big amount of money then say compared to $25 of gas and then pay it off? What is the best way to go please? TY

Re: which secured CC do you like better?

it is better to buy something that is within 1-9% of your credit limit....so, if your limit is $1000, then you should make a purchase of $10-$90 dollars and then pay it off....i think there are some threads on here that tell you how to manipulate your payments so that your balance posts but you avoid finance charges...
