Secured Card Limit Suggestion

I'm on my way over to my local credit union to setup my secured VISA.  How much of a limit should I setup for myself? 


I got cash, just no CC (and no debt) and my scores are in the tank (working on that in the other forums).  Smiley Happy

Re: Secured Card Limit Suggestion

If you have $1000 or more, I'd ask for that. It looks better on your reports, and it's a whole lot easier to control your util than with a lower-limit card.
