  • Go to a jewelry store and apply for a credit card. Charge something to the card and pay it off every month.

  • Get a department store credit card, like a Kohl's card or something. Them make sure you pay it on time.

  • That's strange. You should request your credit report from the three credit bureaus and find out whether you have a credit history or not.

    Yes, department stores are the easiest place to open up a card. There are also Visa and Mastercards available for people with a short credit history. Check out their websites for the type of cards available and how to apply.
