Dunno which one to go for...!! Help!!
Which one do you think is better...?
Well Smile is an internet one so for purposes of seeing someone about your money/complaining etc it wou be easier to go with RBS. Besides RBS give you a £2500 overdraft and more crucially they don't charge you the earth if you run over it. In fact they don't charge you at all! If you want a savings account go with a proper savings account rather than a normal bank account; you can do better than 3.04% AER Interest! I hope that helps.
Anyone know RBS Student Account's interest rate...?
So interest rate and overdraft system that Smile offers is better than what RBS offers...
Just did a bit of research...and it looks like Natwest is better than both Smile and RBS...Natwest's rail card will come in handy...and their interest rate matches that of Smile...
Smile's part of the Co-Op group, so you can do most branch stuff with the Co-Operative bank. They have considerably fewer branches than most banks though, so if you plan on using bank branches a lot, Smile might not be the greatest idea.
I've been with RBS for ages and they have always been so helpful that i havent even considered moving. its not always about the freebies and rates its also about how helpful your bank is gonna be if you get into trouble RBS rocks
