It depends on how poor your "poor" score is. There are some credit card companies that offer secured credit cards to people with low scores who are trying to build or rebuild credit. With the secured card, there's no risk to the company because they use your savings account as collateral for the loan. There are some credit card companies that have cards that you have to make a deposit on before you can use them, and these are typically geared towards people with low credit scores. Just be prepared to pay high interest rates. But if you use the card responsibly (i.e. making sure that your balance is less than 20% of the limit and paying the balance off and on time every month), it can help increase your score.

Look at Secured cards from Capital One or OpenSky.
