Hi there, i was at my local halifax branch queuing up to withdraw money and i came across this amazing deal. I hope you all look in to it and treat yourself.
Get a student bank account that could give you the largest interest-free overdraft around, up to £3000. To open a student bank account all you need is a confirmed place at university.
We got the information on other accounts from 'Moneyfacts' and the relevant banks' websites on 17 July 2008. All amounts shown are the maximum overdrafts, not necessarily the overdraft you would be able to get. This is because the amount of overdraft depends on your personal circumstances and whether you make regular payments into the account.
Our largest interest-free overdraft continues past your graduation
With our student bank account, you can keep your interest-free overdraft for the length of your course - that's up to five years - plus an extra year after you graduate.
Get everything you'd expect from Halifax plus the following.
* A great interest rate of 2.02% AER - 2% gross (before tax) - when your account is in credit.
* 0% commission on foreign currency and traveller's cheques - great if you need a study break.
* 25% off AA membership for a year.
* 20% discount on Card Care insurance.
