Top Student Cards of 2007
by: Tom Tessin

It’s another year in the books and that means it’s time for everyone’s New Year resolutions and a start to another college semester. If you haven’t already applied for a student credit card, you may be in luck because we are going to show you the top three student credit cards of 2007 and why people choose them. We hope that this will make your credit card selection process a little easier.


Citi® mtvU™ Platinum Select® Visa® Card for Students

In 2007, the Citi® mtvU™ credit card was the most popular credit card on the network. One of the biggest reasons that this credit card was popular was because of the way the card rewards students. Not only did it get thumbs up from parents, it got thumbs up from a lot of people that look down on students getting credit cards because they think it ruins a student’s credit history.

Some of the great features on this credit card include getting points for getting good grades, maintaining good credit, paying your bills on time, and buying items such as textbooks and food. These points could then be used on gift cards and items from Citi Bank’s huge ThankYou network online store.


Bank of America® Student Platinum Plus® Visa®

The student credit card that came in second place would be the Bank of America credit card. This credit card wasn’t as popular as the mtvU card but still drew a lot of interest from students. One of the nice perks on the Bank of America card is that they will give you a $25 statement credit after qualifying transactions. Another highlight of this credit card was the fact that you didn’t need a co-signer, which a lot of students are interested in.


Citi® Platinum Select® Card for College Students

The credit card that came in third place that was actually fairly close to the Bank of America card was yet another Citi Bank credit card. The reason citi bank credit cards are so popular is because they are fairly cooperative with first time credit card users and they offer an extensive amount of rewards. If you’re not familiar with the ThankYou network yet, you should become accustomed to it because your points can be spent on just about anything you can think of.

These are just the top three of the many student credit cards we have to offer. Some of the reasons you may not see any other types of credit cards on the top three lists is because they may not offer rewards or they are very difficult to work with. 

Every year credit card companies come out with new credit cards and rewards that cater to just about everyone, including college students. If none of the top three credit cards appeal to you, there are plenty of other options that can fit your needs.
