Paying off credit card weekly
If I'm trying to build up my credit and have just received a $200 secured credit card, would it help my score if I use the card for the $200 limit each week and then pay it off weekly?

Its going to take about 3-6 months (more on the 6 months side)  to start seeing a change in your score. Just make purchases that you can afford to pay off within 30 days of buying something. Remember you are trying to establish good history through longevity, not spontaneous spending... Good luck my friend....
