Maybe try discover?  When my scores were up around 700, they gave me a 4400 limit on a student card....way more than i ever expected.  They gave my parents a 25,000 limit.

like...$8,000 or so.  I'm a college student that works at Target.  I don't make much money!  They didn't require me to give income when I applied.
