Why we recommend it
The Deserve® Edu Mastercard is an excellent card for students looking to build credit as having a previous credit history and security deposit is not required. Another perk allows international students to apply without the need for a Social Security Number, making it one of the only cards with this offer. Take note of the term 'international', as this card has zero charges on foreign transactions. The best part is you will be earning an unlimited 1% cashback on all purchases, allowing for perfect rewards for students. Earning rewards while building credit? A rare combination for a starter card.
