Student bank accounts - compare all
All the major banks offer some sort of incentive alongside their standard student account overdrafts. Things to take into consideration include overdraft limit, credit availability and whether you can get a credit card.
What the bank accounts are offering is shown below.
Make sure that you check with the bank first that their offers havent changed, as occasionally banks change their deals.
Make sure you shop around too - sometimes the offers are just used to tempt you!
