If your scores will allow, I would app for the Chase Freedom. 1% on everyhting, and 5% on the rotating bonus catagories. In addition, Chase is good to be in the door with.
In addition to a credit card, you might also want to consider a charge card with AMEX, the Zync.
Of course this all depends on your credit history and why you are in rebuilding mode.
