If you can get two cards, that isn't a bad idea as it will be two credit cards building (hopefully) positive history. Some things to consider though:
1) The best thing to consider is that any credit cards you acquire, you should expect to keep the rest of your life. The length of time afffects your score positively. Why is this relevant? If the fees are horrible, you should expect to pay them for a while.
2) If you have the money for a deposit, the can get a secured card with higher limits than you could normally qualify for which will help you more in the long run. Orchard's secured card isn't a bad deal.
