Hi, Hope everyone is enjoying the snow as much as my 4 year old nephew.

I was browsing my online bank services and realised my overdraft has a 'expiry date' of march 2011. Now, this is something new to me, what is an expiry date?

if it means my overdraft will no longer be available after this date?? and if so, lets say im 35 quid overdrawn and then the overdraft expires? what happends to the £35 im overdrawn?? do i pay interest on this?

only im on a student account and was told my overdraft would be free as long as im a student

any help will be appreciated. Thanks

They expire even while your a student, if you still a student then phone up and they can reinstate it although you may need to provide proof

With my Natwest student account each educational year I was studying at university I could ask them to increase the overdraft by £500, and then when I was no longer a student the overdraft was automatically reduced by £500 each year.
Just pop into your local branch if you have any worries, I'm sure they will explain it for you.

oh right, makes perfect sense, Im planning on closing my overdraft anyway as i dont really use it much, my only concern is forgetting about the expiry date and using my overdraft a day before it expires, and then getting charged a whopping amount of interest.

Im with the Halifax and my overdraft expires/renews at the end of each year.

I dont think its anything to worry about - I get an email/letter a couple of months before the expiry date simply saying that my overdraft will be renewed on such a date..... if they are not going to renew your overdraft for any reason, maybe you have constantly gone over your arranged overdraft then they will have to give you notice of cancellation and give you time to clear your balance.

Best thing to do if it is worrying you is to call the bank and just ask them for clarification etc.

To be honest you might as well just leave the overdraft option there, it doesn't cost you anything, and you never know, you might need it someday - hopefully you won't, but you would kick yourself if you cancelled the overdraft and then six months later went £10 overdrawn one day and charged £25 in fees for it.
Just keep the OD in place, don't use it, but have it as an emergency back-up.

I gave up with them in the end! Smile have always been great. I used to live in Totton before uni and the last straw with hsbc for me was when they put my local branch down as Tottenham court road . . . . . about 100 miles away!

Yep! Everything is done online or over the phone, their tag line is "The UK's first full internet bank since 1999. UK 24/7 call centres and free secure online banking" Although you can do some things in coop bank branches.

My best advice would be to go with bank who has a branch on campus or near where your accommodation is. Natwest were brilliant with my student account, I'd highly recommend them if you are looking to move to another bank, but if you are happy enough where you are I wouldn't bother moving. Though, having said that, leave it till next educational year and Natwest will probably offer you a free student railcard for taking out a student account which is a nice bonus.

That sounds pretty cool!, but ive got a question which may sound slightly stupid, what if you want to bank cash notes? how are you supposed to get them into your account if its an online account?? i take it as you go to a coop branch?

My best advice would be to go with bank who has a branch on campus or near where your accommodation is. Natwest were brilliant with my student account, I'd highly recommend them if you are looking to move to another bank, but if you are happy enough where you are I wouldn't bother moving. Though, having said that, leave it till next educational year and Natwest will probably offer you a free student railcard for taking out a student account which is a nice bonus.


Im living at home with parents and commute by car everyday, its a long drive but prefer it to the train, however, there are days where i have to take the train? do Natwest really give a free railcard with their student accounts? i will definatelly consider that next year

Yeah i guess because you stuck with the same bank they didnt offer anything. I'd go with what SS said and transfer to natwest as not only do you get the rail card you also get a discount card (although only £5 otherwise - http://www.studentdiscounts.co.uk/)
