    I've noticed some banks only let you use your overdraft when you've paid into it first. Can't find any information regarding Santander, so could anyone with experience help please?

    You don't need money to open a Santander account. I have one and I just told them I wanted to open an account and I have, I didn't need to have money to put into it. Hope this helps you!

    Is the overdraft accessible straight away, or do you have to wait til a specific date? Thanks for the reply

    Apparently you only get a £250 overdraft before you deposit money. It says so on their website. I hope that helps

    Saw that bit, just wondered if it was instant, or if you have to wait until September. Thanks for the reply! ^_^

    I'm pretty sure you can access the overdraft straight away. You don't have to wait until September.
