    Hi, so I have a £750 student overdraft, and anyway in my account it says roughly
    -£520 and then the bottom bit says I can withdraw £90

    why is this? shouldn't I be able to spend £220 of it? (not that I am, just for example) or are the bank slowly taking some of the money I owe them back?

    Sounds like you have money that's been debited from your account, sometimes it can take 3-5 days for it to be fully processed i.e. lower your balance limits and show up on your statement.

    Yes, you have payments that are still processing but haven't been added to your statement yet. The funds are being held (and can't be used), but they'll appear on your statement soon.
