    So I'm just starting uni at the end of this month and I am looking at opening student accounts. (More then one). I'm very good at managing my money so want to take advantage of this while I can. I was wondering if anyone else is doing it this year. I was also wondering if I was to open hsbc which I am already with and have a good account history with. once I have done that I try applying for co op, Santander and nation wide. all at once or 2 out of the 3 so I have 3 student accounts all together.

    Sorry if it does not make any sense lol =)

    You'll wreck your credit rating and break the t&c's of at least one of the accounts by doing it, why would you want to do that?

    I only have one student account which is a debit card and I don't have a overdraft. I don't need one and it will also affect my credit rating.
