    Hi, I need to open a bank account for my wages from my job to be paid into, and for my student finance grant to be paid into. I was wondering what type of bank account should I open as i currently have a "Cardcash account" (that comes with a Visa Electron debit card) with Halifax but should i open a regular current account or one of those Student account?

    Thx for ur time

    Electron isn't really widely accepted. Open an account with a Visa or Maestro debitcard. I really doubt it matters which one you open, especially as interest rates are pretty much zero everywhere. Student accounts have some benefits, although whether these are actually useful is another thing.
