Re: BUILDING Credit advice?

Building...I would suggest putting more money on your secured card.  If you can't afford to drop a couple hundred dollars into the account to increase your limit, try to at least put an extra $25-$50 a month on it to build it up.  After about 6 months, you should shoot for an unsecured card.  Nothing fancy, but something that you can grow with.  GE cards are all good ones to start and grow with.


Good luck.
