The 40K USAirways card form Barclays has been pretty good on approving customers with little or no credit. Just beware that you might not get the full signup bonus if they decide to give you a 'lower level' card.

Try a Macy's or Gap.

Make yourself an AU on someone else's account in good standing.

I think Kohls might be easier, is that no good?

I was a cardholder on an amex account for a while before I turned 18. I'm not 100% sure about this, but if I recall correctly the account activity showed up on my report.

IIRC Dan boasted about having one before 18. Try applying and put in a DOB that's a bit older.
