A secured credit card is a prepaid credit limit. This means you have to put the amount of money down of your credit limit. Example if you want a limit of $300, then you have to deposit that amount into your account. Also you do have prepaid debit\check cards, these do not help to boost your credit. Use your cc and buy small items and pay them off each month. Its a slow 6 month proccess, but worth the wait. Good luck my friend....
