  • Credit vs. Debit Cards for College Students, and Are College Deals Good Deals? How we manage money can be influenced by the tools used to manage it, and two of the fundamental financial tools millions of people use are debit and credit cards. Debit and credit cards have some similarities and some very big differences in their features and how they may be used. For college students, these cards may be their primary purchasing tool, and they are a responsibility to be handled maturely and thoughtfully. Before a student decides what type of card they’ll depend on, they need to consider the features of both. Here is a brief guide to how these cards function that highlights how they are alike and unique that may be of interest to students of higher education.
