I am a student and am thinking to apply for the gamestop credit card. Is this card good as a first credit card for building my credit history?

While the GameStop credit card allows to build credit history, we would not recommend it as a first credit card because the card is basically designed for people with established credit. Also. we wouldn’t recommend you this card because of its high interest rate. Another disadvantage of the card is that you can’t use this card outside GameStop stores. Considering that it will be your first credit card, it would be better for you to apply for a student credit card. Such cards have relatively lower APRs and fees, and you can still use the at GameStop. For example, you can apply for the Discover it® for Students card. This card comes with a 6-month 0% intro APR on purchases and no annual fee. In addition, this card gives you 1% cash back on all purchases, and up to 5% cash back in categories that rotate throughout the year (up to the quarterly maximum).
