Add more money to my secured credit card?

Postby AudioFlux » Thu Nov 29, 2012 1:15 pm

Hi all, I've been lurking these forums for a while as my credit-building goals have grown over time and finally decided it was time to posit a question.

Out of college I had no credit and a few student loans, so I needed to go with a secured credit card. After a year of on-time payments, I will be able to shift the card to a standard credit card. The credit limit of this card is equal to however much I deposit into its account. I started in January with just $300 in the account but bumped it up to $1000 a few months ago; this increased my credit score nicely.

I've been paying off my student loans aggressively, and am on track to pay them off by mid-2014. I've also got a pretty good amount of money saved up. So I'm wondering this:

Should I deposit more money (possibly as much as $4000-$6000) into my secured Credit card in an effort to increase my credit score and bump up my CL before switching into a non-secured credit card?

*bump* :\ Any hints on this, folks? I'm still new to all of it.
