As with all credit cards, this is a great time to get in the habit of paying it off in full every month. If you treat it like if you were paying with cash, and pay it off every month, you will not get caught in the high interest trap so many Americans fall into. After a while you will begin to receive offers from other unsecured credit cards. You may look for one that offers rewards. Again, as long as you stay disciplined and keep on paying it off, it is a great way to both build your credit and get some additional benefits (watch our for the annual fees)
