Unsecured credit card for a 19 year old
I'm a 19 year old college student and I've been pretty conscious with my finances. No debt or student loans currently but I'm looking to get a credit card to start my history. I have been looking at the Citi Thank you preferred and BOA travel rewards card. Are my odds better if I apply for a student card instead like Citi Foward or an unsecured one.
Thank you
