Finding the right student credit card

Thursday Feb 07, 2013

It can be difficult to find the right student credit card if you don't know what to look for. Here are some tips on finding the best student credit cards.

Tip #1 - Search for student credit cards that have $0 in annual fees. The last thing you want to worry about is paying an annual fee for a credit card.

Tip #2 - Look for student credit card with low APR rates. The APR rates refer to the interest rates you have to pay if you are late in making payments, so the lower, the better.

Tip #3 - Earn Cash Back from your student credit card. What is better than using a credit card at a restaurant and earning up to 5% cash back, which you can use towards the purchase of school supplies, rain umbrellas (for those wet and windy days), sunglasses (for those sunny days), clothing and so much more.

Tip #4 - Search for student credit cards that offer the most time to make payments. Since college students always have unexpected expenses, having a larger payment window, can be a really good thing.

Tip #5 - Get one with a fun design. You are going to be looking at this credit card every day, so why not find one with a really cool design.

Good luck in your student credit card search!
