Many credit card holders reap the benefits of cash back rewards on their credit cards. And college students arguably make up the demographic which always seems to need extra cash. Thankfully, these students can now get a credit card to help them with that.
The Discover® Student Open Road Card starts by helping college students keep more cash in their pockets by offering an introductory annual percentage rate of 0% on all charges for the first six months of membership (before rising to between 13.99% and 20.99%). In addition, cardholders get 1% cash back on everything they charge on the card.
But perhaps the most attractive feature of the card is a 2% cash back bonus when the card is used at any restaurant or gas station. So students can earn double cash back rewards while fueling up for road trips or making a 2AM food run to the all-night diner. For students who like to shop, Discover’s exclusive online mall can provide cash back bonuses of between 5% and 20% on every purchase.
Cardmembers can also leverage their rewards for eCertificates or gift cards of greater value if they choose.
