If you want a low limit in order to limit your risk, consider using something like ShopSafe (let's you create special CC numbers with low limits).

I wouldn't do that if your credit score is important to you. A lot of cards coming on and off really messes with the numbers.

MBNA uses (used?) ShopSafe but the site was recently joined with the BoA site. I need to call them to see if they still offer the service.

Citi bank has a similar service.

Others?

Discover Deskshop
American Express Private Payments


Edit: Removed the e-wallet as it's a different service.
