Have you had a card before?

If you have not had a credit card before, you may be turned down for a standard card because of that lack of history.  In that case, get a "secured" card that can, after being used carefully and repaid quickly turn into a regular card.

Just because you have a high credit score doesn't mean you are automatically going to be able to get a credit card or signature loan. 

Those credit card companies that rejected you had to send you a letter telling why you were rejected.  It had to be something involving your credit reports.  The letter will also tell which credit bureau was consulted.  If you have not already (and you SHOULD be doing this every year) get copies of all 3 credit reports to make sure all accounts and other information shown on the reports are absolutely correct.
