Sallie Mae MasterCard®

The Sallie Mae MasterCard® offers a cash back reward of 5%, but only on the first $250 per month, making this reward a bit meager.

Check out our post on The Three Best Credit Cards For Young Adults and College Students for some better card recommendations.

Note: This card is no longer offered. Instead, Sallie Mae offers the Upromise World MasterCard®, which gives you:

  • 10% cash back for every $1 spent on eligible retailers through
  • 2% cash back for every $1 spent on eligible in-store department store and movie theater purchases
