Nice! 

 

How are the rewards on that card. I already have a card with them so in the future I'd like to get one of their non-student "better" cards.

Well, it's a points based rewards system. They sent me a prequalified offer, and I was too chicken to try for the cash back card instead. I don't expect to give it heavy usage in any case, as I'll be getting better rewards with BoA. I just wanted to be able to link it to my checking for OD protection, so I'll just use it lightly to keep it active.

Little hint, at least for my checking account with them, you still get charged an OD fee even if you link your credit card. It is less expensive (I think $12.50 as opposed to $35) however they still do make you pay for it. It's a little ridiculous.

It's the same fee as linking my savings to my checking. I haven't had to use it, as I've been doing a good job of maintaining my checkbook. But, it gives me peace of mind in case an "ooops" happens. I prefer to know that things are covered if a mistake happens.

Re: Left garden -- approvals!!!

They charge you to use your own savings account as OD protection? Damn, they're crazy...that is why I never use my WF account except to pay my WF CC bill.
