High limit

So don't forget to add together all your loan and scholarship money as income (yes you can do that!). That bumped my income up from $7,000 to $20,000. 710 transunion/equifax. 739 fico. Fast approval for a $2500 credit limit. You also get this cool feature where you can buy tickets to sold out concerts through Citi so you never have to miss out.

Good credit building card.

Never ever apply for this card Online, you will end up getting rejected or approved with a hard enquiry. If you are an international student, I suggest you to visit the brach even before you get an SSN and open a bank account. After three months of opening date, visit the branch and apply for this card and you will get approved. I suggest not to update your SSN befoe applying this card as you may have a hard enquiry ( I got this without SSN and avoided Hard enquiry). But update it as soon as you get your card delivered. For people who already have an SSN updated at your branch, you can't avoid hard enquiry, but you will get approved for sure if you apply through branch. Great Free FICO score tool and 90days price monitoring(price match) tool and you can earn considerably good points at restaurants.
