I recently received an offer to apply for the Discover More. I was thinking of applying but I was also considering the Student More. I currently am a student at a 4-yr University, so I know I would be okay to apply for it. Besides that, are there any advantages to applying to one over the other? I don't care about interest rates as I pay my balance off every month.

I think the difference lies in how easy the approval is. Student cards have much more lenient approval requirements and for the most part lower limits.

a csr told me there is really no difference except the regular more has a minimum income requirement of $15,000+ a year because I had to apply for regular more instead of student since im at a 2 year school and im ineligible to apply for the student more card
