Re: Is there any drawbacks to apply for as many credit cards as you can while young?
With an income that low, he'll be limited to the card he could qualify for...quality over quantity is always best.

He can get a secured card, keep it for a year and if his income increases next year, get an Amex. if he adds an additional Amex in a few years, he'll have the sufficient credit he will need without damaging his AAOA.
