breakinger's review: I just came across this wonderful card for my daughter. She will be going away to college soon and this card will actually reward her with a $20 bonus at the end of each year if she maintains a 3.0 GPA. The credit limit is just enough for her (around $1000.00) and she still has the ability to earn rewards on purchases. The APR is variable at 13.49%- 22.49%, but there is a six-month introductory period where all purchases are 0%. I would recommend this card to any student that is just starting college and doesn't have a big credit history or have student loans on their credit report.

Great heads up! Sure did not know these options were available. Now as for you ... don't come crying to us if you are faced with the "empty nest syndrome" :)

It sounds like a good way for students to build credit on their own, and linking the bonus to GPA is a really nice incentive to keep focusing on their studies.
