Bank of America BankAmericard secured credit card is the best in the market. I had this card myself which was gave me cash rewards and was automatically converted to a regular card in a year, annual fee waived by request. I requested a credit limit increase thereafter and was given a 500% increase.

Sounds like a winner. I used capital one a few years ago. They converted me to regular card also, however no cash back. But, cash back on a 250$ secured credit card wouldn't have been much.

Most, if not all secured cards will report to all three credit bureaus. I've heard good things about the Bank Americard, though I don't know anything about it.

Capital One is pretty liberal with their unsecured cards, BUT their limits are ridiculous like $300-$500.

Oh it can be a lot. Just load the card with a credit balance and you can spend as much as you want on it.
