2023.06.08 10:29 24hrjunkteam1 what are the average prices to remove junk from yard?

The cost of removing junk from a yard can vary depending on several factors, including the amount of junk, the type of items being removed, the location, and the specific junk removal service you choose. Pricing structures may differ among companies, but here are some general guidelines to give you an idea of the average prices:
  1. Size and volume of junk: Most junk removal services charge based on the volume or size of the junk being removed. They may use measurements such as cubic yards or truckload equivalents. Prices can range from around $100 for a small load to several hundred dollars for larger quantities.
  2. Type of junk: The type of items being removed can also impact the price. Certain materials or hazardous waste may require special handling, disposal, or additional fees. For example, removing construction debris, appliances, or electronics may incur higher costs compared to general household junk.
  3. Accessibility and location: The accessibility of your yard can affect the pricing as well. If the junk is easily accessible and close to where the removal truck can park, the cost may be lower. However, if the junk is in a hard-to-reach area or requires extra effort for removal, it may result in higher charges.
  4. Additional services: Some junk removal services offer additional services such as cleaning up after the removal or sweeping the area. These additional services may come at an extra cost.
  5. Geographic location: Prices for junk removal services can also vary based on your geographic location and local market conditions. Urban areas or regions with a higher cost of living may have slightly higher prices compared to rural areas.
It's important to note that the information provided here is a general estimate, and it's recommended to contact local junk removal companies for specific pricing details. They can provide you with accurate quotes based on your unique situation and the services you require. Additionally, be sure to inquire about any potential additional fees or surcharges so that you have a clear understanding of the total cost before hiring a junk removal service.

WiMi Hologram Cloud(WIMI)Developed And Innovated Its BCI Gaming Model
Last Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter that brain-computer interfaces could solve the biggest bottleneck in human progress. Musk is known to have launched the Neuralink in 2016. He believes the company’s technology can help humans achieve “symbiosis” with artificial intelligence. Simply put, people will be able to combine their brains with computers.
When it comes to brain-computer interfaces, the first impression may be that Musk makes monkeys “mind-type.” Since then, Musk’s Neuralink has been developing brain implants designed to treat diseases such as paralysis and blindness. Recently, however, the Chinese team was surprised.

https://preview.redd.it/tbcol9y2yq4b1.png?width=830&format=png&auto=webp&s=238316ebea3d1bc80cf29c2e39c3ff4b14a718f8
The world’s first brain-computer interface test on monkeys was successfully conducted
Recently, the world’s first nonhuman primate interventional brain-computer interface test has been successful in Beijing, which is of great significance to promoting the field of brain science research, marking China’s brain-computer interface technology among the international leading ranks.
The experiment was led by Professor Duan Feng’s team from Nankai University and jointly completed with the General Hospital of the People’s Liberation Army (301 Hospital) and Shanghai Xinwei Medical Technology Co., Ltd., which broke through core technologies such as endovascular EEG signal acquisition and interventional EEG signal recognition. According to the video, the surgical monkey just needs to “think” to bring the food to the imports.

This technology has been widely used in medical, military, and other fields, such as it can help patients with stroke and ALS recover, and even store human thinking, consciousness, and memory in the future. This series of very magical results have begun to happen. It seems that some scenes in sci-fi blockbusters are not so far away from us.
Brain-computer interface refers to a direct connection between the brain of a human or animal and an external device to exchange information between the brain and the device. At present, there are mainly three kinds of BCI, invasive, non-invasive, and interventional BCI. Neuralink, founded by “Iron Man of Silicon Valley” Musk and a team of scientists, is one of the few companies that develop invasive brain-computer interfaces.
In contrast, the interventional brain-computer interface technology used in China is safer. According to information released by Nankai University, the team sent interventional EEG sensors through the singular vein into the sagittal sinus and the motor cortex brain region. After surgery, the team successfully collected and identified the non-human primate interventional EEG signals, realizing the active control of the robotic arm.
It can be said that the interventional brain-computer interface takes both intrusive and non-invasive strengths while avoiding the shortcomings of both. From the current development, brain-computer interface technology has made breakthroughs, which may first help to the medical industry. Guotai Junan Securities pointed out that medicine and health is the main application scenario of brain-computer, and the future will gradually penetrate entertainment, smart home, and other fields, and become an important form of human-computer interaction.
Brain-computer interface technology will enable the metaverse
Brain-computer interface is a complex system and a basic tool for reading and writing on dynamic network data of neurons. What is more surprising is that, with the sudden rise of the Metaverse, people have great expectations for the integration and interaction of the virtual world and the real world. Many people in the industry believe that the brain-computer interface is the cutting-edge technology hatched by Metaverse.
In the future, brain-computer interface technology will enable Metaverse, and the brain-computer interface is expected to become the next generation of human-computer interaction technology, the ultimate form of Metaverse. At the same time, with the continuous development of Metaverse in the future, the strong support of national policies, as well as the continuous exploration of brain science, the brain-computer interface will become the next generation of Metaverse entrance after VR and AR, realizing the real Metaverse.
According to the White paper on brain-computer Interface standardization released by the China Institute of Electronic Technology Standardization, the potential market for brain-computer interface technology (Brain-Computer Interface, BCI) will soon reach tens of billions of yuan. Another prediction analysis believes that the brain-computer interface in the next 20-30 years, the commercial application will gradually land, will open a 100 billion dollars of market.
The technical race has already begun. Brain-computer interface technology is an important strategic direction of the new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation. The future industry represented by the brain-computer interface has stepped into the fast lane, and the formation of breakthrough scientific research achievements and innovative applications is the strategic need for innovative development.
WiMi Hologram Cloud focuses on brain-computer interface achievements
At present, the brain-computer interface field has tried to combine technology in the consumer field, and the application of in-game interaction is becoming more and more popular. It is understood that WiMi Hologram Cloud (NASDAQ: WIMI) has started to develop BCI game models and paradigms based on brain-computer interfaces. The game model was designed with a P300 brain-computer interface to explore a feasible and natural game execution experience using electroencephalography (EEG) signals in a practical environment.

https://preview.redd.it/6p5pqxqayq4b1.png?width=680&format=png&auto=webp&s=29682ce7de14c2169032a698cfe675b25216728b
According to the report, the novelty of the WiMi Hologram Cloud study is reflected in the design of the BCI games and the paradigm, which integrates the rules of the game and the characteristics of the BCI system. In addition, the convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm is introduced to achieve high accuracy on the training samples. This brain-computer interface system not only provides a form of entertainment but also provides more possibilities for game control.
To be sure, WiMi Hologram Cloud is based on the CNN BCI game model, forming a platform that can meet the interests of both healthy and disabled users. For healthy users, brain-computer interface games are mysterious and technical, which increases the charm of the game and is very conducive to the promotion of the game. For users with disabilities, BCI games provide them with a fair gaming platform, not only allowing them to play games with healthy users in the same way but also as a functional rehabilitation system to help patients with rehabilitation training. WiMi Hologram Cloud’s application of brain-computer interface technology to entertainment games is an important part of promoting BCI technology from the scientific research stage to the practical application market stage.
Conclusion
On the whole, although the new achievements of brain-computer interface technology in China have attracted global attention, it needs to be admitted that at present, the research perspective of foreign brain-computer interface technology is more advanced than that in China, and there can be some technological breakthroughs from 0 to 1. However, the advantages of China are more reflected in the range from 1 to 10, that is, domestic enterprises are good at learning from overseas innovative ideas, making better improvements and engineering realization of products, and pushing the products to the clinic more quickly. In short, if you want to catch up, and eventually lead the industry trend, the core point must also be to increase the investment in basic scientific research.

2023.06.08 08:53 ThrowAway_WishfulT Recovery Feels Never Ending

Throwaway Account because I am active on my main with my close circle & apologise for the formatting as I am on my phone (and also bc I copied n pasted after trying to post this to a vent sub but it needed a karma limit) $45 just got taken out of my bank account which at normal point in my life would have been okay but today seems like the last straw. Recently, I have moved house for study approx 13hrs from my hometown but only 6 from where i used to live as I became homeless at 15 when my alcoholic father kicked me out. I never really enjoyed school and managed to score a full time job with some really supportive adult co workers so I was mostly fine and just couch surfed with school friends and other highschool drop outs sending half of my money back to my dad so he could still eat until I decided I wanted to do more.I started studying at my local University at 17 and worked to support myself and slowly stopped supporting my father. I am now 20 and studying my honours year at a different uni- I have been offered a full time paid internship +mentorship with the potential for a job afterwards at a company for my dream career, but it required me to move closer to my campus instead of being online and at home. I did not want to miss out on this opportunity so I packed up my life at the start of this year to complete the required studies to start in Nov. The plan was to survive on my savings and government student benefits until then, which was all going perfect until a few weeks ago when I heard news my fathers cancer had gotten worse and my car broke down on the drive to see him. I knew he was diagnosed a while ago but it was never serious so I never made contact. He is pretty close to dying and I was scared I would lose him without ever having given us a chance at a healed relationship and I hoped he would be proud of the life I was starting to build for myself. Instead all he did was make me feel guilty about the cost of his medicine and ask me for money. I explained to him I couldn't give him any as I was on a tight budget because my aforementioned savings had been blown on a new car because my first one broke. Things got heated and I left. In my time away from home I have created a really close support network to the point where we all live together to save money with the rising rental costs (an idea i pitched that really hasn't made much difference to their lifestyles but is the only reason I eat enough these days). We all study and this semester some of us are graduating and others of us are just starting new things like my internship. To celebrate they have organised a week of partying before we all get back into our studies, an old tradition from when some of us were still just baby undergrads. I am a huge extrovert and there is nothing more in the world I love than spending time with this people, but as I have always been supporting myself and admittedly most of them have fairly wealthy parents I have had to create an introvert persona as an excuse to spend time with them doing low cost activities (board games nights, cooking them dinner, movies etc.). Their parents give them allowances so their nights out often consist of things like theme parks, dinners, clubbing and concerts that I will generally tag along to once every 12mnths if i can afford to save for it. I adjusted my budget this fortnight to spare myself $20 to go to dinner with them one of the nights. I am on the train home from the beach and $45 just came out from a gym membership I forgot to pause in all the mixed emotions from seeing my father. I had my rent and $37 dollars left. $20 of that was for the celebration dinner and the rest was supposed to be groceries for me and my cat. Now I can't even afford my rent let alone celebrate milestones with people i consider important. I have never been late for an expense before and my friends know I have less than them but they don't know the true extent of the generational poverty I am escaping. I managed to scrounge up some spare change and buy food for my cat and I have rice, butter, broth, eggs, coffee and milk so we will be fine. I am not asking for assistance. I have no one to blame but my frazzled state, I am just disappointed that I will have to make an excuse to miss dinner and also somehow borrow the few dollars I am now short on rent. I wish I could talk to them about it I know they wouldn't judge me but they would never understand. It just feels like I will never be able to heal or escape from the consequences of my childhood and the extremely dark times of my early through to teenage years. I have therapy this week that I luckily prepaid but until then it's cuddling my cat and comfort shows lol. thanks for reading guys i just needed to let it out instead of heading into a negative self spiral over a small mistake.

Brain-computer interface refers to a direct connection between the brain of a human or animal and an external device to exchange information between the brain and the device. At present, there are mainly three kinds of BCI, invasive, non-invasive, and interventional BCI. Neuralink, founded by "Iron Man of Silicon Valley" Musk and a team of scientists, is one of the few companies that develop invasive brain-computer interfaces.
In contrast, the interventional brain-computer interface technology used in China is safer. According to information released by Nankai University, the team sent interventional EEG sensors through the singular vein into the sagittal sinus and the motor cortex brain region. After surgery, the team successfully collected and identified the non-human primate interventional EEG signals, realizing the active control of the robotic arm.
It can be said that the interventional brain-computer interface takes both intrusive and non-invasive strengths while avoiding the shortcomings of both. From the current development, brain-computer interface technology has made breakthroughs, which may first help to the medical industry. Guotai Junan Securities pointed out that medicine and health is the main application scenario of brain-computer, and the future will gradually penetrate entertainment, smart home, and other fields, and become an important form of human-computer interaction.
Brain-computer interface technology will enable the metaverse
Brain-computer interface is a complex system and a basic tool for reading and writing on dynamic network data of neurons. What is more surprising is that, with the sudden rise of the Metaverse, people have great expectations for the integration and interaction of the virtual world and the real world. Many people in the industry believe that the brain-computer interface is the cutting-edge technology hatched by Metaverse.
In the future, brain-computer interface technology will enable Metaverse, and the brain-computer interface is expected to become the next generation of human-computer interaction technology, the ultimate form of Metaverse. At the same time, with the continuous development of Metaverse in the future, the strong support of national policies, as well as the continuous exploration of brain science, the brain-computer interface will become the next generation of Metaverse entrance after VR and AR, realizing the real Metaverse.
According to the White paper on brain-computer Interface standardization released by the China Institute of Electronic Technology Standardization, the potential market for brain-computer interface technology (Brain-Computer Interface, BCI) will soon reach tens of billions of yuan. Another prediction analysis believes that the brain-computer interface in the next 20-30 years, the commercial application will gradually land, will open a 100 billion dollars of market.
The technical race has already begun. Brain-computer interface technology is an important strategic direction of the new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation. The future industry represented by the brain-computer interface has stepped into the fast lane, and the formation of breakthrough scientific research achievements and innovative applications is the strategic need for innovative development.
WiMi Hologram Cloud focuses on brain-computer interface achievements
At present, the brain-computer interface field has tried to combine technology in the consumer field, and the application of in-game interaction is becoming more and more popular. It is understood that WiMi Hologram Cloud (NASDAQ: WIMI) has started to develop BCI game models and paradigms based on brain-computer interfaces. The game model was designed with a P300 brain-computer interface to explore a feasible and natural game execution experience using electroencephalography (EEG) signals in a practical environment.

According to the report, the novelty of the WiMi Hologram Cloud study is reflected in the design of the BCI games and the paradigm, which integrates the rules of the game and the characteristics of the BCI system. In addition, the convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm is introduced to achieve high accuracy on the training samples. This brain-computer interface system not only provides a form of entertainment but also provides more possibilities for game control.
To be sure, WiMi Hologram Cloud is based on the CNN BCI game model, forming a platform that can meet the interests of both healthy and disabled users. For healthy users, brain-computer interface games are mysterious and technical, which increases the charm of the game and is very conducive to the promotion of the game. For users with disabilities, BCI games provide them with a fair gaming platform, not only allowing them to play games with healthy users in the same way but also as a functional rehabilitation system to help patients with rehabilitation training. WiMi Hologram Cloud's application of brain-computer interface technology to entertainment games is an important part of promoting BCI technology from the scientific research stage to the practical application market stage.
Conclusion
On the whole, although the new achievements of brain-computer interface technology in China have attracted global attention, it needs to be admitted that at present, the research perspective of foreign brain-computer interface technology is more advanced than that in China, and there can be some technological breakthroughs from 0 to 1. However, the advantages of China are more reflected in the range from 1 to 10, that is, domestic enterprises are good at learning from overseas innovative ideas, making better improvements and engineering realization of products, and pushing the products to the clinic more quickly. In short, if you want to catch up, and eventually lead the industry trend, the core point must also be to increase the investment in basic scientific research.

2023.06.08 07:13 lawfullytired How bad is Columbus for trafficking? Should I be concerned?

I am a young woman who will be moving to Columbus if I accept an offer from OSU to be an incoming Junior. My one reluctance for moving is that it is a city. I grew up in a town of maximum 10,000 people, and I still remain in a small area. I’ve never been in a city aside from an occasional trip and I have always been with a group of friends.
In contrast, if I transfer I will likely be alone for quite some time. I’d have to walk around alone and be out by myself, at least at first, if not for an extended period of time. This worries me, because I keep hearing about how trafficking in Ohio is pretty bad, especially in bigger cities like Columbus, Toledo, Cleveland, etc. I know news likes to make things seem worse than they are, but I still get worried. I don’t know what happens when you get trafficked, how one even gets taken, or what the lead up is. That, and just being the victim of a violent crime in general freaks me out.
I’m a young woman, but I’m also autistic, and extremely paranoid. I have gotten stolen from on multiple occasions, because I was too oblivious to notice the person was acting with malicious intent and wasn’t actually just being kind (two weeks ago someone asked for my phone to order pizza, and I gave it to them willingly, only for them to order 50+ dollars worth of food and run, fully intending to not pay me back and I haven’t seen him since). This really scares me because I feel like with my gender and my disability I have basically a huge target on my back. It’s easy to say just avoid bad areas but I KNOW I will obliviously walk into areas without noticing.
The academic program is absolutely amazing and what I’d like, because I don’t want to be in a small town anymore, but I worry cities just won’t be for me due to my disability. How bad is it in actuality? Should I be worried?

2023.06.08 06:36 kzzie97 anatomically too high phallus - does anyone know if it can be fixed?

i know the abdominal method involves lowering the neophallus, but i had ALT and i havent heard of this being done or even necessary for people who do phallo with other methods. but the placement is so awkward and unnatural that im sad to look at it, more than a year post op.
i have reached out to a couple of surgeons but they havent let me know if its possible in general before scheduling a consult, every center ive talked to has a consult fee of about 250 dollars and im afraid of spending that just to be told nothing can be done...
so if anyone here has had significant aesthetic alterations after coming out of their original surgery disappointed, could you tell me who your surgeon was? id appreciate it very much, thank you.

2023.06.08 06:30 KingJames0613 Algos are showing desperation.

Algos are showing desperation.
This crazy 1m candle in AH is called a liquidity sweep. Note the long wicks on the top and bottom, with a spread covering $6.50+, over the course of one minute. If you've been in GME for a while, you've seen this before, usually in PM or AH, but sometimes in RTH. These are often characterized as "glitches", but they are not. You will often see them on earnings, major economic releases, and FOMC days.
A liquidity sweep normally happens right at big news events. Basically, MMs and other large players pull their orders from both sides (bid and ask). This forces the algos to desperately seek out the nearest liquidity in either direction, usually in profit target stops and stop losses. Normally, the initial reaction is in one direction, and the counter-reaction in the other direction indicates the direction of momentum. GME is not normal.
Today, the initial reaction was up a few dollars. Since AH is lower liquidity, and GME is generally way lower than average liquidity (because diamond hands), they had to pull all their bids and move them several dollars lower. Otherwise, they run the risk of flashing the other "glitch"... When the sell (ask) side is so thin that regarded numbers start popping up on the order book, like $420.69, $18,500, or $100k+. The emporer has no clothes.
The thing to remember is that the market is double-faceted, meaning that for every buy there is a sell, and vice versa. GME is different for a couple of reasons. One, there's an abnormally high concentration of buyers, at any price. I added 56 shares to my 401k in PM at $26.20. Two, a large swath of these buyers are removing their shares from the DTCC's custody, by booking them into their own via DRS.
Additionally, stock prices are indicated as a halfway point between the bid and the ask. When MMs and larger size players are playing both sides, the "price" is just the culmination of the halfway point between the bid and ask, regardless of whether those orders are actually filled, and to whatever size. When this happens, price discovery in low-liquidity stocks, or during low-liquidity hours, can be manipulated.
On the flip side, the market is double-faceted, meaning every buy forces MMs net short. How do they protect/hedge against that downside, and move toward net-neutral? By buying and selling options...and not like the mathematically illiterate FUDsters here would have you believe. 🙄 Downvote me all you want, but I've been here long enough to remember DFV and the OGs were buying, selling, and exercising options.
If you're net short and want to reduce your exposure, you buy calls and sell puts (both LONG functions), to try to reach net neutral. However, you don't buy calls or sell puts until you've crushed IV (Implied Volatility), which is $4.47 above/below close. We will likely open between $21.64-$30.58, but I would bet on the lower half below close. Once IV is wrecked, that's the ideal time to buy calls and sell puts.
For the next hot button topic, Gavin (Elliot Waves Guy) is a mathematical genius, and was chased off of here out of ignorance. Dude's levels are pristine! This one candle wrecked the GME bear case, from an Elliot wave standpoint. The following AH downtrend damn near knocked out his next wave down, leading into the next wave up.
TLDR: Nothing's changed. Might go up, might go down. BTFD, DRS to BOOK, and stop chasing differing opinions and valuable assets out of here. RC got promoted from chair man to executive chair man. Trust the process. Shorts are still fuk!
Disclaimer: I may or may not own ~4400 shares.

2023.06.08 06:03 fosxei The U.S. Credit Card game (for students) - What, Why, and How

Every so often I see a post here asking about what bank or what credit card to get. In my own experience as well, many students are woefully uninformed on credit cards and how to optimize them. As such, I thought I would write a small guide as to what I think UM students should do when deciding whether or not to play the U.S. Credit Card Game.
Disclaimer: Targeted to students with SSNs. It also places a heavy focus on being able to travel while in university, not necessarily long-term strategies for credit card usage
What is the U.S. Credit Card Game?
Put simply, it is the optimization of Credit Cards (CCs). This can take a variety of forms, including getting credit cards for their sign-up bonuses (SUBs), garnering cash-back (in terms of cash and points) properly, what to do after getting a SUB, how to use the points properly, and much more.
Being in the U.S. is a tremendous advantage when it comes to CCs, as Americans get some of the best CC offerings in the world, both in terms of SUBs and cash-back.
Why should I play?
Well, maybe you shouldn't. If you aren't confident in your ability to manage your money and expenditures, then you are better off following the advice of someone like Dave Ramsey. CC debt can produce decade-long consequences, so stop here and give yourself an honest self-evaluation.
That being said, if you are financially responsible, then the world awaits you. For students, traveling during breaks is a time to make core memories. However, traveling is expensive. In fact, for international travel, airfare is likely the most expensive part of your journey.
So why pay it at all?
I've been to Europe, Asia, and Oceania, all without paying a single dime of the airfare. The only thing I paid was a meager 50-80 dollars for a fuel surcharge.
The secret? Credit cards. This is the name of the game.
At our stage in life, we aren't likely to get so much out of the cash-back cards just yet (not enough consistent spend). However, there are a multitude of CCs that you can get with a very thin credit history that will enable you to fly nearly expense free. You will unlock the previously impossible trips that you could not take with your friends. Experiences that you could only have after establishing a consistent income can be had right now, with the best friends of your life.
Seriously, you will not regret it.
How to play?
One of the greatest difficulties of the game is how to start. There are numerous tricks, restrictions, and guidelines to follow. I will link several resources below that you can read if you are curious. However, the most important one for us will be Chase Bank's 5/24 rule. 5/24 is a rule employed by Chase which will render an automatic denial if you have 5 or more new CCs in the last 24 months. What this means is, as a general rule, get your Chase cards early.
Disclaimer: If your parents are knowledgeable, they might have added you as an authorized user (AU) on their credit cards. So long as they have a good score and history, a lot of that can be imparted to you. For example, I have a friend who has had credit cards for a short time. His credit score is near 800, and his "credit history" is longer than his lifespan. If this is you, some of these rules may not apply.
Step 1: Make a Chase Checking account. They often have cash bonuses for this, so take advantage of that as well.
Step 2: Move your money there, and (if you have a job, you probably should at least part time) redirect your direct deposits to that account. Do not leave the balance low, as this can adversely affect you later on.
Your first card will be your worst one. There is no way about it. You will almost certainly be denied for a credit card at any of the major issuers (other than student/beginner cards that are worse than the ones I am about to list). That being said, the options aren't the worst. I would recommend the BoA Customized Cash Rewards Credit Card or Discover it cards. Look over these yourself, and choose. They both offer pretty decent cash-back options. They will give you cash-back, in terms of statement credit, not bank points.
One thing to keep in mind is that when you apply for a credit card, it will most often result in hard pull on you credit score, which credit issuers often do not like to see too many of. Each issuer has different rules and standards (Chase can be picky, AMEX generally doesn't care, etc). So don't just apply without considering your choices and likelihood of being approved.
Whichever card you get, put some spend on it (try for 10-30% utilization of your credit line, or a bit lower). ALWAYS PAY YOUR STATEMENTS IN FULL ON TIME. This is non-negotiable. Do not use your CC like free money. Treat it like a debit card, and only spend as much as you have.
As a general guideline, you can start getting new (and much better) cards about 6-9 months after your first card. Some of you may be fortunate enough to receive targeted offers even before then. You can also check some preapprovals from various credit issuers. Space out your applications.
In respect to the 5/24 rule, I would consider trying for a Chase Sapphire Preferred(CSP) as your second card. The CSP usually offers a robust SUB, and is an all-around great card. It has a $95 dollar annual fee (relatively low for a card of its stature). However, it may be a hard task with a short credit history. This can be helped quite a bit if you have a relationship with them (remember the checking account we established?). If you don't have a relationship with them, or your credit score is lower than ~715, or you have some other circumstance, I would look into the Chase Freedom Flex(CFF) or the Chase Freedom Unlimited(CFU). The SUBs for these other two are about 1/4-1/3 of the CSP, but they come with no annual fee. IMO, these are the most important CCS to begin with because they give you access to the Chase point system, Ultimate Rewards (UR). The SUBs are typically 25,000 and 90,000 UR points for the CFU/CFF and CSP respectively. They are worth about 1.6 cents/point, which gives you a value 400 USD for the CFU/CFF, and 1440 USD for the CSP. And that is just from the SUBs, you will accrue more from the cash-back value (which are given in points). These can give incredible value in travel, and much more. I will explain this more later. TRY NOT TO USE THE UR POINTS BEFORE YOU HAVE THE CSP OR CSR, AS THEIR VALUE IS LESS.
After you are established in the Chase ecosystem, for our purposes, as students with low, inconsistent expenditures, we will be looking for the highest SUB cards (within reason). If you for whatever reason spend a lot of money, then you have more options as well, but this guide may not be for you in the first place. There is a catch with most of the CCs that offer high SUBs. That is that they require you to spend x amount of dollars within a certain timeframe. Some of these spend requirements are very manageable (2000 USD in 6 months), and some are harder (5000 USD in 3 months). Do not stretch yourself thin here. You can do something known as manufactured spend (MS) to help reach that requirement, but I would not recommend it, as we are somewhat tarnishing our original goal with that. If you are in desperate need to reach your spend requiremnt, look into gift cards (they often have discounts, so you get the cash back and the gift card for extra value), although some credit cards have restrictions on this. You can also often pay your rent with a CC, although the fees for that vary. Do the math, and adjudicate whether or not it is worth it.
So, what cards should you be looking for?
In general, cards that give you bank points (Citi's Thank You Points (TYP), Chase's Ultimate Rewards (UR), AMEX's Membership Rewards (MR), etc). These offer the most flexibility. Some good cards in this category are any of AMEX's Platinum, Gold, and Green cards. They give out very very high SUBs, but their annual fees can get high, so do the math and make a decision. I would recommend against the Chase Sapphire Reserve since it probably isn't worth for students, the SUB is not that great, and the annual fee is very high. I would also recommend looking at cobranded airline cards. The AMEX Delta Gold, for example, recently dished out 75,000 SkyMiles after 2000 USD was spent in 6 months. Barclays AAdvantage Aviator Red is giving out 70,000 American Airlines miles after you pay the annual fee (99 USD) and make one purchase within 90 days. 70,000 AA miles gets you roundtrip to anywhere in the world. United Airlines recently devalued their points quite heavily, so I would avoid any of their cobranded cards for the time being. That being said, if their points get better, a 0 annual fee card called the United Explorer exists, and recently, the 70,000 miles SUB you could get would get you just about anywhere as well. SkyMiles, while hit or miss, can have so very amazing flash sales (most recently, they had a roundtrip flight to Auckland from just about anywhere in the US for 42,500 SkyMiles).
In general, I would recommend avoiding all store cobranded cards and exclusively cash-back cards until you have enough income and expenditures that it is worthwhile. For now, focus on getting the best SUBs so you can maximzie your experiences in college.
The general idea is for cards with annual fees, downgrade them after 1 year of holding it. If a downgrade option doesn't exist, then bite the bullet and enjoy what you got out of it, call for a potential retention offer, or cancel it. I would recommend trying not to cancel too many cards, as it can have adverse impacts on your credit in the future, and if done too often, can cause credit issuers to blacklist you. If the annual fee is too high for you to manage, and there is no downgrade available, then reconsider getting the card.
READ HERE IF YOU WANT TO KNOW AN EXAMPLE OUTCOME
Let me give an example. Lets say you get the AMEX Gold, AMEX Delta Gold, CSP, CFF, United Explorer, and the Aviator Red. If you move your MR points to Delta and the UR points to United, that gives you ~165,000 SkyMiles, ~180,000 United miles, and ~70,000 American Airline miles. The SkyMiles are worth about two roundtrips to Asia or Europe, the United Miles are worth about two round trips to Asia or Europe, and the American miles are worth about one round trip to Asia or Europe. That is 5 international trips. The combined first year annual fee across all of these cards is just $350, and all except the AMEX Gold and Aviator Red (sometimes can be downgraded) can be downgraded to a $0 annual fee card. 5 international trips, for 450 dollars before your fuel charges. That value is incredible. And this is all before you get the extra points from any expenditures you may be having. The combined spend across all these cards to get the SUBs is (in order from the original listing) 4000 + 2000 + 4000 + 500 + 3000 + 0. That is just 13,500 USD that you need to spend in order to get the SUBs. Assume you spread this across 3 years, that is just 4,500 USD a year. I am pretty sure most people live on more than 4,500 a year. Thats some (most?) people's annual groccery bill! Assuming your freshmen year you are building your credit, you could take an international trip every summer and then take two trips your senior year. Imagine traveling the world with your friends while in university, for much cheaper than if you had to pay cash.
That's about all I have to say. I have done extensive research on this topic, and I have employed it myself. I just hope everyone else can enjoy the perks as well.
Please ask questions and I can try to answer them to the best of my ability. I have left out some details in order for this to be as easy to read for the most people.
TL;DR:
Get your first credit card the moment you turn 18. Build your credit responsibly. Use it like a debit card. Pay in full, every month. Keep a spreadsheet. Enjoy as banks pay for your travels.
There are many nuances and rules, but I tried to keep it simple enough and digestible for the layperson.
Here are the two most important resources in learning about the U.S. Credit Card Game:
Doctor of Credit and US Credit Card Guide
There are several other travel-focused blogs that exist, so follow them so you can always get the best value out of your points. Often there are transfer bonuses from bank points to miles, and so you can getup to 50% more value than I stated above, depending on the offering.
