£500 NatWest Student account credit card maxed out... Watch

    There's a drop-down box, just click 'Student' rather than employed. Select household income as £0-£10,000 (as your loans count as income and are between these brackets). Make sure you use your home address and not your university halls (or equivalent address) as you are more likely to be on the electoral role at your own home.
    Excellent! Thanks for your help

    Hmm, how did you get around the 'employers details' section if you're a student?
    Well, two ways. I'm employed whilst studying, on a salary paid on last working day of every month. But easiest is just to select the "Student radio button when it asks for your employment details

    Hi.. I pretty much maxed out my £500 credit card with my NatWest Student Account and am now working full-time at minimum wage, so with rent and everything else I don't get that much ££ to put back onto the card bar the minimum DD payment and the interest. Is it possible to get "shift" that credit card to a different bank to get a better deal in terms of interest and stuff? Credit cards always confuse me for some reason!

    Thanks x

    edit: These are the details of what I have now: http://www.natwest.com/downloads/per...nt_summary.pdf
    give me 250 GBP and i'll give you 500 back within an hour, pm me if you;'re interested.

    To be honest, £500 sounds like a rather low credit limit.... Mine's £2000 and my friend's on £5000! I have a part time job and they don't have a part time job! Both final year students so I don't know how that works..
