    What is so good about a student back account and how is it different to a normal one? I just have a normal one (i think) with Halifax.

    thanks

    Interest free overdraft is usually the main benefit.

    It depends how old you are. Some people might struggle to get a 'regular' bank account with a large overdraft without any credit history. Student accounts acknowledge that we'll be getting jobs in a few years, but until then we need fairly good rates and low interest overdrafts so that we can afford to live!

    To be honest, I would love to know this too.
    I've heard that student accounts give better interest rates, but as for the proof?
    I have seen none!

    Is overdraft the only real benefit then?? (aside from perks like discounts and stuff)

    I don't plan on using my overdraft at all :confused:
