    does anybody know if you're allowed to have 2 student bank accounts?

    I was thinking about HSBC and Santander, I know that HSBC want you to use them as your main account but I havent found anything about Santander saying anything similar so I was wondering if it would be a bad idea to open a HSBC account first and use it as my main (i.e putting my student loans into there) then open a Santander one later on for day to day spending?

    Obviously I don't want to be doing anything illegal but wondering if this counts as breaking their terms and condition????

    Thank you for your help!
