I’m a student and want to apply for GameStop credit card. It will be my first credit card do you think it is a good credit card to start with?

Answered on

This credit card is good for people with established credit because it comes with very high interest rate. Also, you won’t be able to use this card outside GameStop locations. Since it is your first credit card it would be better if you apply for a student credit card. Student cards have rather low APRs and fees. If you are lucky, you will get a card with rewards program. Student cards are reported to the major credit bureaus allowing you to build credit. Besides, a student credit card is a good way to learn managing your finances as they give access to helpful tools.
