There are lots of student cards out there but can anyone tell me which I can get with no credit history? I applied for the Capitol One Journey and was denied. The most recommended one is the Discover Student card but I was just curious if anyone got that one with no credit before I apply. Thanks!!

    HI! I am currently 18 and am going to be a college freshman. I was wondering what the best credit card option would be for me in order to build credit. I was thinking about going thru a credit union. I also have read about the different cards citi offers, but their APR Rates are huge. Thanks for the advice!

    There are many choices and im having trouble finding the best possible student credit card for me? No annual fee and a low apr is the highest factors,no penalty grace period would also be a factor, and cashback would be nice but is not that high of a priority. I have an account at Midwest America Credit Union, so preferably I would want it to be from a credit card company and not a bank. I would love input on what you feel is the best credit card for this situation, thank you very much!
    no, I am aware of how easy it would be to get into debt and all that, im getting this to build good credit, no for impulse purchases
