    My family had always been with Lloyds TSB and just before university started I was deciding between Lloyds and Natwest. I received a letter from Lloyds stating that they were automatically going to update my account into a student one. I was very confused as to how they knew I was going to be a student but I went in branch and told them not to. They did anyway which made up my mind to go to Natwest. I didn't want to stay at a bank which just ignored my request not to automatically change my bank account type.

    Looking at the offers at the time the size of overdraft wasn't important to me and so the best choices were with Lloyds or Natwest. Still very poor interest rates but were better than the rest.

    That was over 4 years ago

    I've always used HSBC they offer a nice big overdraft allowance and low interest rate BUT they do sting you when you go over your overdraft limit!
