HSBCs Orchard secured card I read in another post they do not unsecure it anymore after a year like BOA does. Check some CUs around your area, and if you owe BOA money try US Bank they are a very good bank, not well known in the Eastern states, mostly mid-west but they have a strong balance sheet and they are stable.
Yeah, definately go with the BofA credit card. I had a secured card for $500, my credit scores went up from 25-30 points the second it hit my reports. It hit my reports the same day I opened it. This Monday (after nine months and 1 day) I called to get it unsecured, they checked my history with them, put me on hold, and said "ok, we unsecured it and raised your limit up $500." I mainly paid the account infull each month. But yeah, they are difenately worth it.
