It's not quite as hard and fast as that. A store card like Amazon's can be a good option if you patronize that particular store regularly, but you need (1) to pay on time and over minimum, (2) be sure to pay off large purchases before the promotional interest expires, and (3) take care to keep your utilization moderate (under 30% of your credit line if possible).

I would stay away from store cards.  It is much better to get a all purpose card such as visa/mc.  If you need to I would get a secured card.
