I got the HSBC one as it looked better than the Natwest one. I think alot of them give out the railcard. When i got my account HSBC said it was worth £90 and it lasts until 2009!

i spoke to someone from barclays last night and he used to work in the student branch in leicester and he said there was no way they can check if you have more than one student account. he said as long as there isn't a silly amount of money going through it and it looks like typical student spending they won't query it, and if they did query it you can just say that you don't have student loan and you're using a current account with another bank.

thats because its a "young persons" railcard not a student one. it is valid for 5 years provided your still under 26 years old.

So is the HSBC one - it's valid for 5 years (mine expires in Sep 2008), and they are now, at £20 per year worth £100.

I want the Natwest thingy... I applied online for it a couple of weeks ago and havent heard anything. Did people apply online for that or go to the branch in person??

And also with the railcard, do you get it now, or after results have been confirmed etc??

I applied online, then went into the branch today. The woman couldn't have been more awkward. She asked me at least 5 times if I have any credit cards (which I don't) and still didn't seem to believe me. I've only just turned 18 (well, in January)! She also wants to see 3 months of bank statements, which I don't have.

I think I might open an account with HSBC

Do you think theyd accept a printout from my online banking thing for the last 3 months? Coz I dont have any statements and I could ask for one but I think itll only include the last months and will cost me £5... and they can piss off I aint wasting 5 squids!!

With HSBC, I think it was suposed to be after results were out, but they sent me a letter saying that if I sent off a card and some photos, I could have it now. So I got it a few days ago.

I'm not sure about Natwest though.

Go in and see. I think the woman I saw was just being particularly stupid. They surely can't expect all students to have a credit card

Natwest are offering the railcard for 5 years and they wont give you your student account until you have a confirmed place at university, so for every1 doing a-levels this wont be for another 2 weeks and a bit. I'm already with Natwest, so they have all my info, and i just need to go and see them when i have my results and confirmation of acceptance.

If you open the account and decide to go for the cash over the railcard, when do you get the folding stuff?! In cash? Could come in useful at the mo, but not if i have to wait 6 months or something crazy! Cheers all.
