Got one during secondary school a 16yr old, when I joined college I got another and then a uni one. So technically legal plus they never asked if I owned one in the past apart from Barclays but I technically told them the truth I said yeah during school and college and they allowed me to set it up
Would imagine it depends of the terms and conditions of the account.
Santander say only that you can’t keep an existing Santander account if you open a student account, you’d have to transfer it over. No mention of other student accounts.
Natwest just say you need to be a student, no mention of any other accounts of any kind.
Barclays have a form you have to fill out to register interest in an account, and one of the questions they ask is “Are you planning to use this as your main bank account?” No mention of other accounts being a no-no.
So the poster you’re replying to doesn’t appear to have done anything wrong in having those accounts.
Had a look at HSBC as well, and they say that one condition is you “don’t have another student account elsewhere”, so you’re right to say that for some accounts this is an issue. But not, it seems, for any of the accounts the poster has.
(All information gained from looking at the main application pages. I did not comb through all the tiny small print, because this is a restriction I’d expect to be told of upfront, and as Santander and HSBC demonstrate, account restrictions are flagged up where appropriate already.)
I’m just curious as I’m new to banking and would like to know how many banks y’all are with and who they’re also is their a reason someone needs more than one?
Sorry if this isn’t allowed on here. I just assumed it’s a financial chat question
