Banks High street banks like Barclays and HSBC compete for student business and will try and entice you with freebies! Offers to students opening an account in 2014 includes; Free cinema tickets Internet and mobile security A high street discount card A free year railcard STUDENT ACCOUNT HOLDERS Don’t get tempted by the best sounding freebies though. Try and look into which bank gives you the best access to money and pick one which won’t charge you heavily if you over spend. © IntoUniversity 2015
What is an overdraft? An overdraft is extra money given to you by your bank, which allows you to spend more money than you have in your account. You could get up to £3,000 extra to help you with your studies. Whilst you are at University, many banks will offer ‘interest-free’ overdrafts, which means that if you have to go into your overdraft, they won’t charge you any extra money. You should consider your overdraft as ‘back-up money’ and not become too reliant on it! Be careful not to go over your overdraft limit. If you do your bank is likely to charge you a LOT of money – those new shoes are just not worth it! Remember! Your overdraft is a loan from the bank. If you use it, you will have to pay it back! © IntoUniversity 2015
