If your credit is not good enough for a regular credit card (unsecured), you may qualify for a secured (you deposit $ in an account and the amount of credit is the amount of your deposit) card. 2 of the cards that I would recommend are:

capitalone.com/credit-cards/secured-masterCard/

A coupe of things to help improve your chances of getting one the above cards:

1) if you recently applied for a card and was turned down, try to wait 2 to 3 months before applying for any of the above cards.

2) make sure the information matches what's in your credit report (employer name, address, telephone #, etc.

You can get a free credit report (once per year) from here to see what information is in your report:
