What is the best college student credit card?

Best college student credit card

Is there one best college student credit card? Not necessarily. What it comes down to is reviewing the terms for each card offer and determining which card is better for the student.

If you are shopping around for a credit card, you can get MasterCard credit cards, Visa credit cards, Discover credit cards and more as a college student.

When establishing credit, don’t simply apply for a card just because it offers a great introductory rate. Review the information typically found on the back of a paper application, or by following a “terms and conditions” link online, to see what other fees may be involved.

Be aware of any annual fees, late fees, and know what the interest rate will be after an introductory period ends. Knowing this information will keep you from overspending on your credit card bill each month.
