It depends on why in particular your credit score is that low. If you only recently started building your credit and have insufficient payment history, choose from a wide array of "limited" credit offers from Capital One Bank or Citibank's student offers.

Capital One Platinum - Visa is just the right card for young adults with a job and a valid credit score. No set-up fee, low purchase rate and a $3,000 limit apply. Its eligibility conditions are: you don't have any bankruptcy or criminal records and you are a resident with the minimum income required.

Citi® Platinum Select® Card for College Students helps young people build up good credit history and has no minimum income or co-signer requirements. No annual fee and low APR on purchases apply with this offer.

If your poor score is the result of bad payments and overspending, the right variant for you would be Centennial Gold MasterCard®/Visa , a bad credit card from First PREMIER Bank. Though its limit starts at $250, it is increased after the first two payments made on time.

Choose which of the cards is right for your particular situation and apply for it online.
