    I swore I didn't need another secured card after my Citi success but got an offer from FCNB. I recall hearing good things about them here, should I do it? It says accounts with at least $400 CL are considered for completely unsecured status. Let me know thoughts..I mean, I can use this as another savings account and use it for an unofficial gas card.

    I applied for this this past weekend and got my approval letter in the mail today. I understand that you can qualify for up to 500% of your initial deposit. They report monthly and as unsecured. So, Whatever you think. I made this move because I needed another card and I don't qualify for unsecured yet. BTW, they checked TU for me and my score from TU is 528 as of 9/24/01. I'm in NY.

    Not sure yet. Letter didn't say. I put in $150 so when the card comes in the next few days, I will update the thread.
