Lloyds TSB Student Account
Are you a student? Would you like an iPod shuffle? If the answer to those questions is yes, you'd better read about the Lloyds TSB Student Account. However, as ever terms and conditions apply!
Lloyds TSB Student Account:
"The new Lloyds TSB account for students.
Money worries are no fun when you’re trying to study. That's why we’ve come up with the Lloyds TSB Student account which will give you advice and support with your finances throughout your time at university.
There's an interest-free overdraft of up to £1500*, great freebies including an iPod shuffle** (while stocks last), and free weekly balance updates by text. Plus you get a Lloyds TSB Visa debit card to pay for things directly from your account or withdraw cash.
* 18+, subject to status and application, overdrafts are repayable on demand.
** To qualify for our offer of a 512Mb iPod shuffle you must hold a full Lloyds TSB Student account and pay a total of £500 into that account in one or more instalments by 31 October 2006. iPod is a trademark of Apple Computer, Inc".
If you have been tempted by this, then I'm afraid you are out of luck at the moment! (2006/09/01):
HERE IS WHERE THE LINK WAS TO GO TO THE PLACE!
http://www.lloydstsb.com affiliate program was with Buy At. It's not their fault, but the affiliate program came to an end even before we had this page published! We are in business for the long term view and like a page to go on for years. A premature disappearance is a bit embarrassing, like Ariel Automatic! Quite how a STUDENT ACCOUNT can be completely sold out before the Freshers' Fair week begins is baffling, but that's what we are hearing. Well, let's hope Lloyds TSB manage to find some more budget to fund their affiliate program, preferably before they miss the peak season for student accounts! We look forward to being good for business for them, year on year. In the meantime, if you're a student and you're looking for a bank account, let's see if there are some helpful alternatives. For example, how about Capital One or Barclaycard? They each offer a special arrangement for students. Also, there are some places on the page of banks and current accounts well worth having a closer look at. Shop around!
Incidentally, it was the Lloyds TSB Student Account that tipped the balance and inspired the creation of the Student Resources page!
