Credit card for students: Mastercard prepaid card
As a student, you don't have a fixed income and are generally financially dependent on your parents. This means you are not eligible for a credit card, because you need a financial buffer to be able to defer payment for your purchases. And even if you have part-time work to earn some money on the side, you'll still usually be refused a credit card as a student. Fortunately, there is an alternative in the form of the prepaid card, which is just as convenient, safe and secure as a traditional credit card.
I've had a current account at KBC since turning thirteen. It's where my pocket money and any money I earn from holiday work are paid into. I'm also a big fan of KBC Mobile. It's great for fast checking my balance, for buying electronic parts online and for quickly buying a bus or train ticket. Recently, I linked my PayPal account to it – that's really handy!
