Without a credit history, free credit cards are not likely to happen.  It is essential to have some history for a lender (and that's what they really are) to trust you to repay the money lent. 

So, you have to begin with a "secured" credit card where you deposit a specified few hundred dollars in the issuer's account and that is what you begin building a credit history on.

I do recommend you take the time to read the articles presented here since the primary purpose of Credit Karma is to teach people about credit and how to improve theirs.

If you are a student, you can look into getting a student card to start.  They will generally have a low limit and are great starters to build credit.  The other option is as the other person mentioned, a "secured credit card."  Your bank may issue them, or you can search the web for one.  A lot of companies will issue you a "real" credit card after you have proven worthy using a secured card for a while.
