There are loopholes to easily obtain student cards wo./ being a student. Ive been saying in other threads that non-students can register for a single online community college class, apply, then drop by the deadline for a full refund.
This company also caters to college graduates, so if you have a degree you could probably get an invite. Even if that were not so, there is also the Priceline Visa and you can open up a cash management account at Fidelity that can be ACH transferred to any bank and has no fees for a Fidelity Amex.
You may have different needs than me, but my point is that if your needs/aim is/are to get the most cash back on gas groceries, and other purchases, this is not the card for any of the three, even if you don't supplement with multiple cards, and especially if you do.
