The Discover it® for Students is designed to help young people build credit. Student credit cards are made for people with limited or no credit, providing a way to start building a positive credit history.
Like the Discover it®, the student version comes with an appealing absence of fees and abundance of rewards. It offers 5% cash back on a variety of categories that rotate throughout the year, including gas stations, restaurants, and Amazon.com.
Not only that, Discover will double the cash back you earn in your first year of use. That means you’ll effectively get 10% back on those purchases, and that’s one of the best deals available on any credit card.
You’ll also get a $20 annual Good Grade Reward for getting good grades, for up to five years — you’ll need a 3.0 GPA to get that. And you can also check your FICO Score 8 any time you’d like, for free.
