I would go for the regular one if u think your credit score is good enough. The difference is the 10000 bonus points when u sign up for the regular one, while there isn't any sign up bonus for the student version.

That's the answer I was looking for, thank you. By the time I apply, my credit will be good enough to where I can't justify passing up on $100 worth of gift cards. Thank you.


This is the furthest thing from the truth. I have the student version, and I have the 10,000 points promo. The only real difference between the student and non regular is that its much easier to be approved as a student. That's it. The application for the Forward is the same whether or not you're a student, what determines if you get the student card or not is if you indicate that you're a student. Everything else is the same.

AMEX SPG - $8k
Citi AA Visa - $6.5k
Walmart Discover - $5.5k
Citi Forward - $3.9k
Discover More - $2.5k
Wells Fargo Cash Back - $1.9k
