Easy & Reliable Store Card?

I'm looking for an easy-to-get store card that I can depend on to show up on all three credit reports every month. I'm in the US on a work visa and I'm not sure if I'll end up moving here, so I don't want to commit to a secured card plan yet, but I do want to start up my credit record here.

I would try Macys and Target.

 

I don't think Macys shows up on your reports until you actually use it, though. So if you are approved, make a small purchase and pay it off. Target showed up for me pretty quickly. 

 

Good luck!
