Student credit cards are a great way to build credit while enjoying an unsecured credit card’s benefits. Like other credit-building cards, most student cards do not offer signup perks, such as an introductory APR or travel credits. Now, however, Capital One is looking to change this perception by adding statement credit for streaming services on the Journey® Student Credit Card.
Journey Student Card Offers New Streaming Bonus
The Journey® Student Credit Card from Capital One® is one of the better student credit card options on the market today. The card, like other student credit cards, provides rewards for those who demonstrate financial responsibility. The newest bonus from Capital One is a statement credit for eligible streaming services.
