I applied for this card and they approved me after 3 days. But they did not approved me for this card. Instead, they gave me a classic card. After using it for six months, they changed it to this card. This one is definitely better because you can earn 1% cash back.

This card is very good. You do not need ssn to get it. After I got my ssn, I checked my score and it was about 630.

The website is good. They also give away gift cards and prizes. I got a $150 gift card once.

This is such a good card. My room mate told me about it and so I went to apply. You do not need ssn but you do need your other documents like I-20, passport, bank account etc. You have to upload them to their site and they will approved you after 3 days.

They gave me a credit limit of $800. I use the card every time I go out for dinner. The website is very good and you can tell they are trying to improve it all the time. When I went back home recently, I also used the card and it worked.

I am so happy my friend told me about this card. I did not know about ssn and credit cards in the US before and I got denied by so many cards like Discover, Capital One. Applying for this card is so easy and no hassle at all. I got approved in 3 days. Customer service is so friendly. The website is so user friendly as well.

This is is great for international students like me who have no ssn when you first start studying here. It was easy to apply and get approved. The customer service is good and I can also use the card when I travel home.

This is a very good card. I applied for it recently when I was finishing my sophomore year. When I first came to the US, it was difficult to get a credit card. I opened an account with Wells Fargo and they gave me one with a small limit. This is my second card and the credit limit is much better. It is also accepted everywhere MasterCard is accepted.I have also earned some cash rewards with this card.

This is a great card for us international students. I use the card almost everyday. I applied and it took 3-4 days before I got approved. I need to scan my documents so I had to do it in the library, saved it on my external drive and upload it to their website. Their customer service is great and very friendly. After I got my card and soon after my SSN, I checked my score and found that it was 600. So the score I put here is after I got the card. Before that, I must have no score.

I'm a Brit studying here and this card has arrived just in time for me. Since I have no social security number, all I needed was my I-20. The application process is quite smooth and it was relatively easy and painless. I also found out that they do not charge any foreign transaction fee so it'll be great when I go back for my holidays in the UK.

This card is easy to get even if you have no ssn. You have to upload your I-20, passport, student visa and bank account. They will approve you in 3 days. Their website has articles on how to build your credit history. This is important to me since I am new to this country and I am not familiar with how the banking and credit system works. They have also been improving their website over the last few months. I noticed that the cash back earnings are not updated real time so maybe that is something they could work on.

I got referred to this card by another international student. At first, I could not believe that you do not need a ssn. But it is true. It took 3 days to approve. My credit limit is not high but it is enough.

After I was given permission to work on campus, I got my ssn and signed up for discover card credit checking service. I found out that my score is 580. So this is my score now. When I applied, I had no score.

I am a junior and wished this card had come sooner. When I got to the US, getting a card was so difficult. I only got a card after I opened a checking account with Citi. The branch manager actually helped me get a Citi student credit card and I am so grateful for that. When I learnt about this card, I decided to get it. I already have a SSN so I am not a typical person who would get this card.

This is has no foreign transaction fee whereas my citibank card charges 3%. So I use this card when I go back to my country during the summer.
