Yes, but be smart about your decisions. Open up a secured line of credit at your local bank, and make sure that you deposit at least $200.00 of your own money. Only use 50% of this; which is $100.00 for gas purposes or emergencies. This is very important to follow these steps, if you do this you will start getting offer from credit card companies. Try to only have once more credit card, and make sure that you weigh your options when choosing one. Make sure that is has a 0% APR for the first 12 months (read the fine print), and once this expires make sure that the interest rate is no more then 8-9%.
