LONDON, November 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Students all across the country are now full swing into their first semester of the new academic year.
Particularly for first year students, it's an exciting, butterfly inducing time - but it can be a pretty stressful time too as they look forward to the academic year ahead. Will I be able to cope with the workload? Am I getting on with my housemates? Do I have the right bank account for my needs?
We can't answer those first two questions but when it comes to banking, a student bank account from NatWest is definitely top of the class. Here are just a few of the benefits of signing up to a student current account with us:
Mobile banking: Manage your money on the go, whether down the pub or in the gym, mobile banking lets you organise your finances in minutes.
Online Banking: Save time and the environment with online banking and paperless statements. Our customers also enjoy 24/7 support.
Overdraft: For many students, just knowing they have a financial safety net eases their financial worries considerably. NatWest offers interest free overdrafts of up to £2,250 in the first year (Term 1: up to £500, Term 2: up to £750, Term 3: up to £1000), up to £1,250 in their second year, £1,500 in their third, £1,750 in their fourth and £2,000 in their fifth.
Tastecard Membership: When cash gets tight, one of the first things to go is eating out, so here's a treat: get two for one meals or 50% off your food bill at thousands of eateries across the UK. You will need to register for Online Banking and paperless statements if you want to sign up for this tasty offer.
Emergency cash: Every now and then disaster strikes and when it does NatWest is there to help. If your card is lost or stolen you can still get up to £300 in cash from a NatWest student account as long as there is at least £25 in your account and you are a telephone or online banking customer. If you haven't signed up for either then you can still get £60 emergency cash.
We'll also offer free day-to-day banking, a Visa debit card, a budget calculator, fraud alerts and a whole lot more.
