The type of credit that is good for young people is a revolving credit account like a credit card. Some of the best credit cards for young people are starter cards, like student credit cards and secured credit cards, since they offer young adults the opportunity to build credit and learn good money management habits early.
Learning to manage revolving credit responsibly with starter credit cards can signal to lenders that you are capable of handling money without spending beyond your means. As a result, finding the right starter card can get you on your way to building positive credit. Below, you’ll find WalletHub’s editors’ top picks for the best credit cards for young people.
