Best credit card to start with?

I got my first credit card when I was 19 right when I moved to Santa Barbara for school. I left my credit card at home in nor cal the whole time. One day I get a call saying I owe $500 that someone bough a bunch of stuff at Home Depot. Well I went in with my dad and canceled it.

I haven't had a credit card since. My question to the OG is what would be a good starting out credit card, and would it be better to go into the bank to apply or is online fine? Phone Post 3.0

Also, what are the advantages of going with a credit union? Phone Post 3.0
