Discover currently offers two credit cards for college students. The traditional cash reward Discover it card gives account members up to 5% cash back on different spending categories that rotate every quarter. The Discover Chrome is designed more for the student on the go with rewards for gas and restaurant purchases.

One nice bonus feature for college students is the Good Grade reward, which gives students a twenty dollar statement credit when they reach a 3.0 grade point average for a quarter or semester. The Good Grade reward can only be redeemed once a year and other restrictions may apply.
