College Students and Credit Cards

College Students and Credit Cards

I’m looking for current information on how credit card issuers market to college students and how college students use credit cards. If you have any recent studies/polls with relevant information I’d love to see it. I’m also looking for some input from area experts. -How did the CARD Act change things (are students still offered free “gifts” for signing up for a credit card, how do they prove income eligibility)? -How do school/issuer agreements work (when the school helps sponsor accounts or makes a deal with the issuer)? -Do you have any advice for college students who have their first credit card? If you have any post-2010 anecdotes that could liven up the article please feel free to respond as well. Requirements: Professional expertise related to college students and credit cards. Personal experience using or signing up for a credit card while you were in school (post-2010).
