Yes.

You can credit your student loan account with the rewards rather than getting a statement credit if you prefer, or you can put the rewards in your UPromise account.

The only catch is that there is a cap of $750/month for bookstores.

If you don't already have a Barclays credit card it should be easy. If you do have one you might have to chat with them. There is a 'platinum' version if they give a low CL. YMMV.

Since Sallie Mae Bank serviced it. Last October the accounts were transferred to Barclays.

It used to be better (5% back on $500 gas/groceries and $1000 at bookstores), but it's still a good card.

Here are some threads about it.
