TLDR:
This student card offers good rewards on dining and entertainment, plus a decent sign-up bonus, but is only redeemable through the ThankYou Points program.

Review of the Citi ThankYou Preferred Card for College Students

The no annual fee Citi ThankYou Preferred Card for College Students offers a way to earn 2X ThankYou® Points on dining and entertainment  -- bonus categories that undergratuates often use.  In addition, the card offers a sign-up bonus of 2,500 points (worth $25).  


ThankYou® Points can be redeemed for a selection of restaurant and retail gift cards, merchandise, Amazon.com purchases, BestBuy.com purchases, JetBlue travel and more.  



The Bottom Line
This no-annual fee student card is good for earning dining and entertainment rewards, but the limited redemption options are a draw-back.
