Best Card for Students

5
This is the best Student Card to have. It has the best incentives compared to other banks. Also the mobile app is very easy to use and it gives you a breakdown of how much you have and how much has been spent. This is very useful to visualise the monthly spendings as it can help with budgeting. I would recommended all students to get this card. Reviewed on: 1st June 2023

Alright for students but not amazing

Had some issues with the app's responsiveness, and payments getting rejected even with an arranged overdraft which is odd. The student credit card is nice though it's difficult to stay under 50% of the credit limit, which they don't raise. Had difficulty getting my overdraft limit on the student account raised, even though they claim you can get up to 3000 quid in your 3rd year. It's not my favourite but it does a decent job.

one of the best

It was very easy to apply to and also has great benefits when opening an account. The mobile banking app is also very good as it sends notifications whenever someone sends you money or when you spend which some apps do not have. Reviewed on: 10th March 2023
