Citi Dividend Platinum Select MasterCard, earn 5% cash back on purchases at supermarkets, drug stores and gas stations, plus 1% on all other purchases up to $300 per year. MasterCard for College Students, Visa Card for College Students.
Honestly, I should just stop here since there's no reason to get any other card, except if you happen to spend more than the max $300 in rewards you would earn (that would be about $6,000 to $30,000). So for the high rollers, I would recommend the following cards.
Blue Cash from American Express, earn up to 5% if you carry a balance and spend more than $6,000 a year. So in essence, the max you can earn is actually 3% since carrying a balance is just a terrible idea. And so instead of earning a maximum of $300 a year, I believe you are eligible for up to $1,500 a year. I just got this card so I'm still unsure. I mainly signed up for the card to be eligible for the other AMEX deals that float around, like the $10 lift tickets at Mountain Creek a while back.
Chase Ultimate Cash Award Mastercard, Discover Platinum Cashback Bonus offer cash rewards, click the links to read up but I don't really see a reason to go with these cards unless you are that rich enough to take advantage of more cash back bonuses, which in that case, I don't think you would care much about these rewards and more about the limits.
