Favorite Card Features:

No late fee after your first late payment is pretty forgiving, but we'll say it's the rewards program.

Least Favorite Features:

We got nothing here... Discover is so widely accepted that we won't even to attempt to knock its mythical "limitations".

Our Final Take:

This is an excellent credit card for students, and is a great way to earn rewards while building credit for the long haul.
