If your current credit is fair you can consider credit cards for fair credit history. Most of them report to the credit bureaus and have rewards programs. Also you can apply for a secured credit card. They are good for those who are rebuilding credit, especially after bankruptcy. They require collateral, around $200, which will serve as a guarantee to the issuer in case you default. The credit limit will be equal to the amount of collateral.
