If your college student is looking to start building credit, this week’s Free Money Friday offer from Citi could be a great fit.
The Citi Thank You Preferred card has a $25 sign-up bonus, which always makes me smile and reminds me of my college days when I used to make money signing up for bonus offers!
Just be sure that if you are considering a credit card as a college student that you make a commitment to always pay it off every month and don’t carry a balance. The signup bonus isn’t worth anything in the long run if you spend more in interest.
How to Get Your $25 Bonus
Sign up for the Citi Thank You Preferred Card for College Students*.
$150 Bonus Option. If you are not a college student and have strong credit, you may be interested in the same card with a higher bonus. The Citi Thank You Preferred card currently offers a 15,000 point bonus ($150) when you spend $1,000 in purchases in 3 months.
