The Discover it® Chrome for Students offers cash back rewards for students — 2% cash back at grocery stores and restaurants all year long, up to $1,000 each quarter (then 1%).
Discover will also double the total amount of cash back you earn in your first year, which is a great bonus. That will give you a 4% cash back equivalent on gas and groceries until you hit the spending limit, and a 2% cash back equivalent for all other purchases.
Earn a GPA of at least 3.0, and you’ll get a $20 Good Grades Reward every year for up to five years. You can check your FICO Score 8 for free at any time, based on your TransUnion credit report.
Discover is also known for having great customer support, so if you have any problems or questions they should be able to help. Overall it’s a pretty good option to help students improve their credit, offering rewards, favorable terms and no annual fee.
