Yeah, I've been running into issues related to lack of credit history. I found that the bank with which I've had accounts for many years* was more than willing to give me a credit card with a small credit limit. Thanks to silly "reward points", they're even paying me small quantities of cash back for borrowing money from them interest-free between purchase and billing time.

*Of course, when I opened my savings account with them, it was Boatmen's Bank. A couple mergers later...

I'm just hoping for a high enough limit to buy groceries reasonably. That's enough to establish a stable credit pattern with, and I can get limit increases from there. I'll be waiting until I've switched to FirsTech Credit Union, and then going for one of their credit cards; from what I've read on ConsumerReports, I'm absolutely not touching Bank of America's credit cards.
