The Wells Fargo Cash Back College Card is a basic student credit card, with a mediocre rewards program.
Cardholders get 3% cash back at grocery stores, gas stations, and drugstores, but only for the first six months of card ownership and up to $2,500 spent. 1% cash back is earned on those purchases after that, and for all other purchases.
You’ll get a 0% intro APR on both purchases and balance transfers for 6 months, and then your rates will be 12.15%–22.15% Variable. This rate only applies to balance transfers made during the first 120 days of account opening.
Some benefits are included, with the most valuable probably being Cell Phone Insurance.
The Cash Back College Card has no annual fee, and charges 3% on foreign transactions.
