I am a student and I need to establish some sort of credit, but am absolutely terrified of credit cards and owing money. What’s the best card for me to start off with? I’d only be using this card to buy gas at some gas stations (7Eleven, Lukoil and some other).

In this case you will be able to earn cash back on all purchases and if you pay off your balance before the due date, you won’t pay any interest. Also, it would be great if you receive a bonus when you pay on time. If you are a student and want a card that charges no annual fee, you can apply for the Discover it® Student Cash Back to get rewards at any gas station. This card will give you a dollar-for-dollar match of all the cash back you’ve earned at the end of your first year provided you are a new cardmember.
