Excellent cards for groceries, gas, etc.

Some of the best cards for your situation are obtainable if you are patient with applications, pay all bills for a 6-12 months, and try to wait for your score to get into the 725+ range.  When you have had a few months good credit history in that range, you should be able to apply for credit through American Express for their "Blue Cash" card, Discover  for the "Discover It" card, or one of the Citibank rewards cards.  These are all excellent cash rewards credit cards.

At first consider applying only to one bank for a card.  Given some time with good/excellent payment and low balance history, you should be accepted for one of these cards.  Later, as you keep matters going in a good postive range, you might even consider trying again for the Chase "Freedom" card.
