Adding Money to a Unsecured Credit Account
Would one be penalized for adding $50 more to credit limit to raise current limit to $300 from $250 already have. Does this effect ones credit score, and about how much points taken off. Is this a smart move to take? Trying to raise credit score to 700. Score is 670.

You mean to a secrued card right?  Is this your only card?  If this is your only card I would try to get another card.  $50 will not make a difference.  You have a good enough score that you should be able to get a card from Cap1.  I would check there pre qual site.
