Certainly – there are a number of different companies that offer secured credit cards. As an alternative, you may also obtain “prepaid” credit cards.

The difference between the two types: the prepaid cards do not rebuild your credit as you are giving the card company the money before you spend it. A secured credit card is actually extending credit to you and therefore should start the rebuilding process.
