Credit Cards for Scores less than 525

Can someone suggest any credit cards for those with really poor credit but trying to rebuild?
 
Thanks.

orchard might give you an unsecured card, if not you will have to shop for some secured cards.  Also, get crown jewlers if you havent already, will help your uti.

Bank of America Secured CC $99/$500...

Take very good care of it for 6-9 months. It helps if you have checking/savings with them (at least for me).

Avoid Houshold Bank, Capital One might approve you.

I recommend Capital One. They have decent rebuilder cards with none of those ridiculous fees.
Here we go again...

cap1 and boa 99/500 would be ideal, but i didnt think they would approve <525 fico.  I would look into them on whogavemecredit.com before wasting an inquiry.  Orchard has a pre-approval site that will do a soft pull, I would definitely try them first because you have a very good chance at getting one.
