Desjardins says that young people and cell phones are “absolutely inseparable” and when you sign up for the new credit card, the cell phone insurance comes with it at no extra fee to help students only who have accidentally misplaced their phone or had theirs stolen.

Desjardins also issued a statements that the “Desjardins Visa card FOR STUDENTS ONLY is an excellent way to establish a good credit rating and develop good financial habits”.
