First, please don't type in all capital letters on forums. Second, we do not know what your credit situation is since you did not give us any information on your situation. Third, most credit cards will require "hard inquiries" which cause slight damage to credit. There is something known as the "shopping cart trick" in where you can sometimes avoid hard inquiries. Either way, your credit can be dinged for lowering the "average age of accounts" when you open a new account. However with most FICO scoring systems you will see a boost in scores upon the opening of your first two cards if you do not currently have any. If your credit is poor, I advise looking for a SECURED credit card that is reported to all three credit bureaus. Capital One may be a lender to check with. Be sure that you take the time needed to read what you can about credit so you can gain an understanding as to how it works. In order to win the game you must know how the game is played.
