Sometimes, a secured card is the best option- or the only one- that was how I was able to build the fundation of my credit record,  however, I could  help my partner to get a Discover it credit card by writing a letter of recommendation to it's respective finantial institution. In it, I stated that I would povide finantial lessons and  tutoring to her as well as close supervision on her management of the card. Of course, my credit is 759 after only 2 years living in this country, so they bit the bait. So, If you can get help, good, if not write a letter to any bank before applying, sometimes they are willing to help. Discover is a easy one. No chase-took me 14 month of credit history- and not BofA, they kept my secured deposit for one year long, before even giving me a unsecured card. Capital one is another option, but the benefits are somehow limited.

Hope to help you.
