Sounds like a smart move! We covered this in a recent The Gist newsletter here
. But pasting them here:
Discover IT Student Chrome: From our own personal experience, we'd endorse this card. We'd recommend that you pay the balance as soon as it posts too, but if that’s not your style you may have higher standards. Discover offers this as a no-fee card with a free FICO score, a 1-2% cashback, and no prior FICO score required.
Deserve EDU Mastercard for Students: A convenient entry-level card for those who lack a U.S. credit history, SSN, or both. It’s limited in some respects and doesn’t interface with less common transactors, but there's no fee and it offers a consistent 1% cashback rate on all purchases.
Journey Student Rewards Card from Capital One: A basic card for those with average credit or looking to get their first card. Offers rewards for paying on time, a 1-1.25% cashback rate, and no fees.
