prepaid mastercard
 
Hello. I’ve been banking with Barclays but I’ve also recently applied for a prepaid mastercard called Cashplus. It’s an easy way for students to shop online and is very safe. I’ve been using it for over 3 months now and am really pleased with it. The best thing about it is that you’re guaranteed to be accepted and you can even use it to build up your credit history!

I use hsbc who gave me 1500 pound overdraft limit which increases by 250 for every year you are at uni! You also don't get charged for being in your overdraft for 5 years! I also got a credit card with 500 limit for emergencies and again its interest free for 5 years so very good to build up credit history! They also come with perks like free travel insurance etc!!
