Dont you have to be a member of the CU in order to get a CC from them. I know he is not a member of any right now. He will have to wait until Oct when he returns home. Yes honey I am on here too.

A store card might be an option as long as he always PIF's.

If he's a student, there are lots of prime cards he can look into that will grow with him.
 
Otherwise honestly he should grab a BOA secured or 99/500 partially secured.  Something with no AF that (again) will grow with him so that he won't need to cancel it and lose the age in the future due to fees and low limits.
