I started using Barclays Student Additions Account as my main bank account ever since I was enrolled in university. The choice of bank account was actually all out of convenience since there was a Barclays branch just 5 minutes walk away from my university, but I didn't really expect all the great deals and rewards that comes with the account. We could sign up for Barclays Blue Rewards and get cashback on purchases with more than 100 shops and retailers, including Boots, JD Sports, Debenhams, Expedia and much much more! Never really thought there were so much goodies that came with this student account. The customer service was also great as they could answer most of my inquiries, and sometimes if they can't, they'll just direct me to someone who can. I am also currently using the Barclays banking app on my Iphone 5, and the security seems pretty good so it makes the app safe to use. I do most of my payments on my phone as it's quick, safe and easy. The only bad thing (for me) about the app is that the latest update supports Apple IOS 11 and above (it's good since it always updates) but my Iphone 5 can only support IOS 10 so it wouldn't let me update and I was forced use the older version of the app. Can't really blame since I'm using an old phone. In overall I'd very much recommend Barclays to my friends as it provides lots of benefits and it's also safe to use.
