Hey everyone, thanks in advance for your help!
So I'm turning 18 this week, and plan to apply for my first credit card by myself. As my name suggests, I'm a Delta Gold Amex AU with my parents. I am looking for a good credit card to apply for to have during college, but I also want something with a company that I wouldn't mind staying with for a long time.
I feel like I should get a card based on my future wants/possible needs, so I think I should get a card with a company that may have cards I would like to product change to in the future so that I have the best cards possible.
My choices have been basically narrowed down to the Citi Forward for college students
, or the Capital One Venture card. I think Citi would probably better suit my needs in the future, so I would tend to go with the Forward card, but the foreign transaction fees are a curve ball.
As most of you probably know, Capital One does not charge foreign transaction fees. I don't travel abroad all that much right now, but I will be spending at least one semester abroad within the next few years. So that makes me want to go with the Venture card, but from what I've heard Capital One kinda sucks. And I want this card to be with a company that I could stay with for years (I want the best AAoA possible).
Any advice you guys could give would be awesome! Sorry if I didn't explain this clearly, I got my wisdom teeth out this week and I'm on some serious painkillers.
