In terms of traveling, here are some things you can use to book cheaper flights and hotels or get money back:

If you do take your student rewards card be sure to watch out for these credit card mistakes.  If you don’t have one, signing up for the card that offers a free T-shirt probably isn’t the best way to choose one.
