Save money on banking
- Prepaid card – If you have trouble sticking to a weekly or monthly spending limit, prepaid cards are a great way to ensure you play by your own rules. And some even have apps to help you budget.
- Student bank account with 0% overdraft – Ideally you won’t have to use the overdraft on your bank account, but if you ever do, it’s good to know that you won’t be charged interest (or fees) for doing so.
