Student checking account comparison

An example and overview of some student checking accounts

Student checking accounts are designed with students in mind. This means that they will offer tools and options that other accounts may not. They also tend to have lower monthly fees (if they have any at all) and tend to require a lower amount kept in the account at all times. These are all things to consider when you do a student checking account comparison.

To help guide you here is a student checking account comparison that we put together. Keep the following in mind when conducting your own student checking account comparison.
