First, with a low score, your best option is a "secured" card.  To get such a card, you have to deposit a few hundred dollars into the card issuer's bank and that will be your credit limit. 

Because you apparently did not have a good understanding of how credit works before, I strongly suggest reading the articles provided by this site (look under "resources" on the left side of this page) and utilizing the financial tools so you can see results in a "virtual" environment instead of learning from hard experience that a decision was not the best. Credit Karma's purpose is to teach about credit because that is one thing very important in today's economy but few people have been taught about it.  I learned a lot and have a degree in accounting!!
