Whether or not you can get a rewards credit card depends on your credit score. There’s a good chance that you can actually get a rewards card of some sort, as long as your credit is average or better. Try a cash back card with no annual fee and a low APR; they often don’t require folks to have stellar credit to qualify. If you truly cannot get an unsecured card, you should look into getting a secured card, which allows you to put down a sum of money as collateral and then get a credit card with a limit equal to that deposit amount. After a certain amount of time, you’ll likely be able to convert your secured card to an unsecured card, as long as you’ve kept up all your payments and your account is in good standing.
