Lesson Excerpt

Chances are that during your years of post secondary study you will get your first credit card.

Some of the balancing factors to this include higher than average interest rates, and lower credit line amounts.

How does one begin to choose the right card? You may want to begin by finding out what student credit cards are offered by the bank you already do business with. This can offer the convenience of being able to transfer funds directly from your account to the credit card, either in-branch or online, making payments simple.
