Several members also go with Cap1. But I like BOA if you can swing it.

I did Cap1, They even gave me a $100 increase with a secure card after a year. Just keeping it now because its the oldest card I have and no fees.
I did the exact same thing.. put 200 down, got the card, and they gave me that extra 100 about a year later.
I also keep it, no fees. I don't use it anymore, but it def. served its purpose.
A lot of people complain about Cap1's customer service, but on a 200 dollar secured card, it is what it is.
