2. Bank of America® Travel Rewards credit card for Students
- Rewards: Earn 1.5 points for every $1 spent on purchases. Points can be redeemed for travel purchases, including flights, hotels, vacation packages, and rental cars. There are no blackout dates or restrictions on where you can book travel.
- Welcome Offer: Receive 25,000 bonus points (worth $250 in travel statement credits) after making at least $1,000 in purchases within the first 90 days of account opening.
- Annual Fee: $0
- Other Benefits and Drawbacks: This card has no foreign transaction fees, making it a great option for international travel. It also comes with travel accident insurance, auto rental collision damage waiver, and 24/7 fraud monitoring. However, it does not offer as many benefits as some other travel credit cards, such as airport lounge access or travel credits for TSA Pre-Check or Global Entry.
