What's the point of earning rewards on grocery shopping if you rarely step foot in a supermarket?
So we've put together a guide to credit cards for young adults to help navigate these new waters.
Remember this: The "perfect credit card" doesn't exist.
If you can't pay off your balance every month, look for a credit card with low interest rates instead.
If you have large purchases on the horizon (like when furnishing a new apartment), you can choose a card with a long 0% intro APR.
Zero in on your priorities to get the right card for you.
Here are some things to keep in mind: Rewards: Look for a credit card with rewards that fit your lifestyle.
As long as you can meet the minimum spend, you'll get a nice lump of cash or travel points to get a jumpstart on your goals.
But never apply for a card just for the bonus--pick the one has rewards or features you need.
After all, it's easy to fall into credit card debt if you're not careful.
