Wow, I cannot believe USAA gave a student 20,000 in credit. Not to rain on the happy parade here, but this can be a recipe for disaster, especially  for a teenage boy just starting life as a young adult.

It's either ...

 

a) a recipe disaster for someone who can't handle credit 

b) an AMAZING building tool for someone who can Smiley Tongue

 

but I think a $20,000 limit for a LOT of people, not just teenagers could be a potential issue

Re: USAA approval wow kidding me!

Agreed with mr_postman..
Furthermore, as a young, full time student, part time worker who has built my pristine credit solely at my discretion and with minimal help from my parents, it's kind of annoying to see people whose mommies and daddies just take care of everything... Just remember... If
he runs up a huge credit card bill, you're
probably on the hook for it 
Fiscal responsibity is of utmost importance to everyone 
With that being said, that USAA Amex sure is a pretty card!
