How much should I put down on a secured credit card?
I'm trying to rebuild my credit and recently got approved for the CapOne unsecured $200 cc. However, I recently received a bit of money I'm hoping to build credit with via an unsecured credit card. So I'm wondering if I put down $1-2k will this improve my credit score faster vs a $500 deposit/credit line? If I did put a $1-2k deposit down would my line of credit match this? I plan to only use 30% & pay on time, etc. Just wondering if it's worthwhile to put down more. Thanks for your help!
