    Hey everyone was just wondering if anyone has two or more bank accounts with a overdraft, I know it's not technically allowed and not good to get into so much debt but I just need the money at the minute , I have a student bank account with natwest and was planning to open one with Barclays, many thanks

    "Not technically allowed" as in "fraud".

    Banks share information. If/When your current bank finds out that you are trying to open another student account, you run the risk of them closing your existing account and demanding immediate repayment of your current overdraft.

    Seriously poor idea.
