Try applying  for an Orchard Bank credit card. Their credit cards help rebuild credit for those with lower credit scores.

Generally Capial One is pretty good for those with a low credit score or just strting out. If your score is taht low from debts I would highly reccomend paying off some of the delinquent debt before signing up for any credit cards as they will only be temptations to add to your debt.

Try the Horizon Gold Card, this is an online store card, not a Visa or Mastercard, this can only be used on their online store. There is a small fee for this, like 29 a month, you will be approved, trust me. You get a 500 dollar credit limit, my fiance got this card and in 15 months it raised his credit score 58 points! Good card!
