CardRatings Editor's Analysis: Pros & Cons

  • We like that this card rewards students well for their dining and entertainment purchases – both things students like to find time (and money) to do.
  • Since there's an intro 0 percent APR on purchases for the first seven months (then, 16.49% - 26.49%* Variable), students can get a feel for paying off a credit card without being overwhelmed by interest payments. Just remember to pay off your card each month, whenever possible. That intro period won't last forever!

  • This card does charge foreign transaction fees, so it's probably not the best choice for a semester abroad.
