You can get a secured card from Capital One or others by applying online or through a branch.
However, there are other people (including myself) getting unsecured cards which offer rewards, without any credit history.

If you are a college student you can go to Citibank to get a ThankYou Preferred card, or go with Capital One Journey or Discover it for students. Chase Freedom is not for students and can be harder to get without credit history, but there are several people getting this card without history.
Also keep in mind that if you apply online most probably they can't verify information and will generally require you to send whatever documents they want to see. If you want a card with Citi/Chase/etc. you might want to go to branch to let experienced bankers take care of paperwork.
