How can college students save money?
College students looking to save money have several options available to them. Here are a few ways they can save:
Take out a student credit card: Students can take out a credit card specifically tailored for them. They can use it to pay for their monthly expenses and get cash back on their purchases and then pay the card back down each month. As long as students continue to pay their card back by the monthly due date, they can use it to earn cash rewards. This will also help them to start building credit.
