I signed up for this car recently and I've only had it for a few months so I will reserve me full judgment until I have had it a little while longer. But my tentative judgment of the card is that it is absolutely excellent. As far as I’m concerned, this is the best credit card out there right now. First of all, the application process is completely easy. You can also chat with someone from Discover online when you need assistance, which has been a huge help for me. I absolutely love their customer service. They don’t have any annual fee, which to me isn’t even a perk, it’s more

I chose the Open road card because, as a college student I had a very limited credit history. I needed to establish myself and start creating a report to help with student loans so I looked through the options geared towards people in my shoes and this card by Discover stuck out. A lot of weekends I would be traveling to and from school for work and family stuff so I used this card mainly on expenses like gas or stopping for some fast food. I liked the cash back portion even though its not much a little back is better than nothing especially as a student. The intro apr more

This was my first credit card for college so I was not sure what to expect, but I felt that for my first card it was a great experience. I think it was really a great fit for my as a college student and I was able to get all the essentials I needed for my first year. Even after I was at school, it was pretty accommodating for all the things I needed to buy and get during the year. It was pretty great that I got emails about cash back opportunities and what not, so I definitely too advantage of that whenever I could. There was 0 interest more

My rating: Good for students, but has a mediocre online website. It connects with, and presumably other budget trackers just fine.

After applying and being rejected for a Chase credit card (due to my small personal income level, being a student), I applied for this one, and was approved in less than a day! I was only given a $500 credit limit, which is actually plenty for a student. I have been using the card instead of my debit card in order to get some use on it, as well as eventually take advantage of the cash back options. Paying the bill online has to be done through the more

After having a credit card at another bank that I just wasn't really satisfied with, I decided to go with the Discover Student More Card. This card was exactly what I was looking for as a student in college. It is also a good beginner credit card for someone who doesn't have any credit history. My favorite part about this card is that there is no annual fee while at the same earning cash back on all my purchases. This is a win-win type of deal for me. Overall, I would recommend this card to any student in college who is currently looking to improve or build their credit.

Discover open roads is a great way for freshmen and students with limited credit to establish themselves with a good card from a good company. I got my card shortly after graduating high school and it really helped me establish my credit, the rate has also remained low. The couple of times I had late charges the company gladly waived them. The only issue is the initial credit limit was low and they refused to consider raising it until I graduated despite four years of good history with them. I would recommend it for those with limited credit and those who aren’t comfortable restraining themselves with a larger credit limit. more
