Nationwide Bank Accounts Reviews

22 January 2019
They have good customer service especially with missing or lost cards. Internet banking is easy to use but most transactions require a card holder. Not too many perks for students.
22 January 2019
Never ever had a problem with Nationwide. Their app is super easy to use on the go, especially with fingerprint recognition and the ability to open new accounts on it instantly. Also really good for saving with their instant save feature, and I could even set it up so they text me every week to let me know my bank account movements! The staff on the branches are also super helpful and always really lovely!

Nationwide flex account is a fairly good bank account, however it does pay much interest on savings, so wouldn't necessarily recommend for a student who has a lot of savings.
22 January 2019
Totally happy with the online banking, customer service and all other services provided by this bank.
22 January 2019
Been good so far, no fees which is a perk offered that was really good and has just been a good bank account. Nice interest rate and all statements done online and online banking with them is easy to use
22 January 2019
Nationwide is in my opinion the best banking society for students. Their mobile banking app lets me access my balance on the go. There are lots of cool deals and i highly recommend.
22 January 2019
Nationwide is one of the best banks I've been with! So easy to get things sorted and if ever you have any issues, they are great in store. The online banking is easy to use and keep track of your money!
22 January 2019
Very good and useful. Big overdraft reduces stress of student life of no money. The mobile app is very good and easy to use, lots of features and you can transfer money easily. The staff in the call centres and in the banks are friendly and helpful

Nationwide have excelent customer service with great advise for students. There are branches everywhere which makes it really convinient if you have to go to a branch at home or at uni. The online banking service is very useful and has a clear layout.

Easy to set up in local branch, I had a 1-2-1 meeting via Skype. Set up an over draft of £1000 for my first year of UNI which increases each year, has been great having that extra bit to fall back on.
22 January 2019
When I first joined Nationwide they sent me a hamper for when I started University including snacks and stationery. The only complaint I have is as I went into second year it was not made clear that you have to reapply for an increase in your overdraft. Other than that being initially inconvenient, it was fairly straightforward how to reapply online. They also offer £100 when you refer a friend which is good for students. The online banking app is good and easy to use as well.
22 January 2019
Great progressive overdrafts and customer service. I love Nationwide and use it for all my different bank accounts, largely due to generous interest rates.
22 January 2019
Customer service isn't the best, atm's deliver ease of access however and banks are usually open when I am available
22 January 2019
overdrafts are really flexible and customer service are always on hand to help with cancelling direct debits etc. was also really easy to switch from my flexone account to flexstudent which was amazing. more perks would be amazing as other banks do include free railcards.
22 January 2019
The quality of the mobile banking app was high quality as it was easily accessible as you can just check your funds and overdrafts is brilliant for the duration of your course extra per year.
22 January 2019
I've been with this bank for a few years and have always received regular emails and letters as well as help.
22 January 2019
Very good bank account for a students quick simple and easy to use very help and friendly customer services
22 January 2019
After being accepted and having my university place confirmed, I was given my £1000 overdraft (the maximum available for a first year student - but this is easy to reduce if that's what you want). I was also sent a welcome box with some university essentials like a door stop, some instant noodles, playing cards, a game, some chocolate bars and some popcorn! I thought this was a lovely gesture. I also found helpline staff very efficient when I needed to reset an online banking password. The banking app also works really well, and I havent had any issues with payments missing from my balance.
22 January 2019
Great account and customer service is always excellent! Banking app is really easy to use but also feels very secure! I would definitely recommend them to a friend!
22 January 2019
A really great service with good benefits such as insurance for phone and breakdown cover for a reasonable fee. Overdraft is good however other banks do offer a better overdraft without interest which is helpful when needed. Customer services are fantastic and there is hardly any waiting time. Online banking could be better without the card readers as they are hassle.

Very good. Friendly and helpful service. Any enquiries, always happy to help. Brilliant over draft scheme. Little uni starter present given at the beginning of uni. Nice touch. Easy and simple to use their online banking.
22 January 2019
Perfect easy to use account with good infrastructure. Never had any problems with it as I'm good with my money but customer service for queries was good.
22 January 2019
Amazing bank. Great customer service and friendly workers, the phone app is so easy to use and you can sync it with your thumb print so you don't have to keep keying in the code every time.
22 January 2019
They have a great over draft system for students for £1000 which you can take you time to pay off, this account is also great to use as a savings account you can withdraw money from it as if it's a normal Bank account
22 January 2019
Amazing!! Easy to extend and reduce your overdraft , also shows regular outgoings in categories so you can keep track of spending !!
22 January 2019
I feel secure knowing I have an overdraft there although I haven't gone into it at all! The staff were friendly and very helpful when I signed up for a student bank account and were more than happy to answer my questions. However there is no really perk, compared to other bank accounts, the main reason why I wanted nationwide was because my current account was already there!
22 January 2019
Nationwide's FlexStudent account is great to help manage your money with the app, and they are really helpful in sorting out problems you may have. However there isn't loads of great perks with it, but there is a lovely welcome pack when you first make the account.
22 January 2019
The branch I used were very helpful and always on hand to answer questions. The mobile banking app and online banking are quick, secure and easy to use and when I lost my card they very quickly sent me out a new one.
22 January 2019
Very easy to transfer money to friends/family, a suitable over draft limit for a student. I love the banking app, it means I can check up on my balance and make transfers on the go. However there aren't that many perks that I'm aware of.
22 January 2019
Very helpful and includes loads of freebies ! As a student I need to budget and nationwide flex student account helps me doing this through the variety of saving options and benefits on nationwide flex student account.
22 January 2019
App is easy and simple to navigate. Good customer service - always communicating through approved methods and informative of relevant developments.
22 January 2019
It's a decent account. Very much does what it says on the tin. Not many benifits/ perks with the account but equally can't complain either. Online banking is alright but not that simple, moving money is overly tricky and the app on your phone very hard to set up
22 January 2019
Nationwide provide great customer service, every time I have been into a branch, a member of staff has personally checked whether they can help, and each time my issue has been solved.
22 January 2019
As an existing nationwide customer I found this very easy to set up. It has a generous overdraft. There was not any added incentives to signing up with nationwide however they sent a nice gift box with food and games which was a nice surprise.
22 January 2019
Really good account in general with great online banking, good overdraft and friendly staff. Reliable bank.
22 January 2019
Great customer service, step-by-step overdraft pay back plan. Great online banking application services.
22 January 2019
Really enjoyed the flexibility of the account offered by Nationwide. I enjoy the benefits that are present even once I graduate. I be looking into their saving and ISA options for sure!
22 January 2019
One of the few (perhaps the only) fee free accounts which is why I chose it. Easy to see overdraft spending and limits on the app, the app is easy to navigate and access. Had a bit Of an issue trying to get this account as I was told my application was rejected, then it was subsequently approved and after calling to see why this occurred, I was told I had already started an online application but not finished it hence it was rejected - so when applying For this account make sure you complete all the stages in one go. I like the ability To choose overdraft limits and how nothing is due to be paid back until a year after graduation. However the perks for this are poor; I only got a gift box when I signed up (although this was cool with snacks and games etc.) would like to see discount cards for restaurants/takeaways, gift vouchers, free rail card or something useful for students.
22 January 2019
Calls to nationwide are always answered quickly and professionally. When calling to resolve issues, customer service representatives are very helpful. I think the overdraft flexibility is the best available on a student account. Mobile banking app is well designed and frequently updated.
22 January 2019
Customer service in branch is brilliant, always clear and precise with advice and efficient. The interest free £1000 overdraft is great as it's allowed me to not have to worry about my finances so much this year. The online banking is great and very secure, however needing a card reader to transfer money to new payees can be irritating.
22 January 2019
Offers a good overdraft amount per year of study, and also get a free box of snacks once you sign up.
22 January 2019
Fab account. Very easy to you use and fab for students. Good online banking facilities and easy to use. Customer service good. Would highly recommend.
22 January 2019
Customer service is always very good. The mobile banking app, is my favourite among any other banking app that I have.
22 January 2019
I find the online banking of nationwide very helpful. It's speedy but remains very secure, would recommend.
22 January 2019
The mobile banking app is easy to use and is maintained well and updated regularly. The overdraft is easy to set up and increase each year on the Student account.
22 January 2019
Overdraft was set up easily with no hassle, nationwide also have a great app so you can easily see what you are spending. Banks to put money in can be a bit slow, however. This aside, strongly welcomed with a student 'care package' and provide advice when needed.
22 January 2019
Always very helpful when I have a query, generous overdraft, easy-to-use mobile banking app and a really cool box full of goodies when you first start uni!
22 January 2019
The flexibility of overdraft as you progress through uni is great. Also after your defeee you're not required to pay of the overdraft all at once which is great.
22 January 2019
I have an excellent banking service with Nationwide as a student account holder. The online banking system is very secure in my opinion and the interest-free overdraft options for students are excellent. I would definitely recommend a Nationwide FlexStudent account to anyone seeking a student banking service.
22 January 2019
Great services and very quick. The only issue is when having difficulties with card abroad they are hard to contact and sort issue
22 January 2019
Customer service is decent Overdraft limit is great and easy to extend Online banking is easy Need better perks such as free/discounted railcard

This account has an excellent overdraft that has helped me when needing to pay rent/car insurance, when waiting for my student loan to arrive. Additionally, I have lost my card in the past and a replacement was sent to me within 3 days of losing the card.

The overdrafts is brill. No interest and so much space, excellent for a student who needs a second and leeway to get on thier feet. Customer service in the Preston branch has been great when I've been in.
22 January 2019
The customer service at nationwide is always top class, they always serve you straight away and deal with the problems to the best of their ability. the mobile banking app is perfect too, being able to set money goals and target with picture motivations
22 January 2019
Really good you get good overdrafts, never had an issue with them at all regarding transfers or anything it is really good/fast.
22 January 2019
Nationwide FlexStudent - pay in at least £500 per term from the date the account is opened (this can include your student loan, money from family members or any other income);
22 January 2019
It was very easy to set up with the appointment I made and I'd easy to adjust my overdraft when j want as well as secure with my card reader
22 January 2019
Never had any problems with Nationwide, always friendly and helpful and everything works as it should
22 January 2019
The best Student Bank account of the lot - while others have freebies that are attractive (such as the free railcard), the overdraft is one of the biggest on offer and so much more useful on a daily basis than anything else. It's given me such peace of mind not to have to worry excessively about my balance. Mobile banking app is incredibly useful and so easy to send money and change the overdraft allowance once you get to second year.
22 January 2019
Great banking service! Very reliable and fantastic customer service. Don't be sucked in by the offers that other banks provide for students, it's worthwhile going for a bank with a better overdraft and better banking practices
22 January 2019
Great bank, app is a little glitchy some times and overdraft not as good as santander. Would reccomendespecially as they have just updated their app. Now a lot easier to bank on the app. Very easy to transfer money between accounts e.g ISA and other current account. Very quick to replace cards if lost and will inform you of any out of the ordinary transactions which may not be you.
22 January 2019
The most friendly and reliable service , I have received from banks and won't be leaving any time soon. There are many different accounts that you can open , suited to you including savings account which I have opened. They are also very safe and do not give out personal info etc.
22 January 2019
Easy and efficient account. Mobile banking app is very quick to use and well displayed. The nationwide customer service is very good.

Customer service is always great, in person or over phone. Overdrafts are super flexible including if you don't want one then thats an easy option. The banking app is one of my favourite things. S so easy to use and transfer money between accounts.

It is a very friendly bank. They help you with everything, from setting up to managing money. There app is very easy and simple to use. There is no hassle and it is very professional
22 January 2019
Suitable overdrafts free of charge. Easy to use and safe mobile banking that has a range of useful features. No other perks given as an incentive to get the account unlike others however.
22 January 2019
They have a large flexible overdraft perfect for students that if needed can increase during your period at university.
22 January 2019
The max overdraft is £3000 which is pretty great! Especially if you're doing a longer course or only get the minimum loan !
22 January 2019
im currently in year two of study and I wish to increase my overdraft however its not allowing me to increase to the maximum
22 January 2019
The overdraft is amazing, they are good if you loose your card. When setting up the account the staff were amazing and helpful especially for people iple with no family support or guidance
22 January 2019
Best student account out there. I recommend this to all my student friends. Overdraft goes up to £1000 each year (in total £3000). They do not charge if you go over your overdraft (they normally block card payments). It is 0% interest and they have a graduate scheme to help you pay it back once you have a job. Love this student card 💕
22 January 2019
Despite an issue at the beginning of this academic year, in which an overdraft increase through my student account was delayed for myself and many other students, the account has been a life-saver. Perfect for use with a student loan, in which it can be dipped into and topped up over a long period!
22 January 2019
Overall really good. Love the online banking - makes it really easy to see where I'm at with everything. Also great to have a contactless card and really easy to use with apple wallet.
22 January 2019
it's beyond helpful having an interest free overdraft, especially one that increases by £1000 with every year at uni. it makes it so much more stress-free to be able to pay all my rent and bills without worrying if I'll have the money to pay it. The mobile app is amazing and they've got a feature that updates you every month on the type of spending you're doing and your habits, personalised to your preferences, for example how much you spent on food/drink compared to previous months. I won't lie, this isn't always something I like to see and I'll often pretend it's not telling me I've spent too much on food, but when you're trying to budget it's really helpful! overall, I love this bank and I would definitely recommend to anyone going to uni
22 January 2019
Brilliant Account if you're earning. Offers free travel insurance. Good overdraft facility and really good in bank support and online support.
22 January 2019
Great bank account and great staff, but there's a £20 fee to send money to bank accounts outisde the UK. Very expensive
22 January 2019
Good account with perks of free travel insurance if you pay a certain amount in each month. Easy online banking app.
22 January 2019
Loans are granted on loyalty and for a very small interest rate The app is also allows you to quickly block payments if you lose your card Accessible, easy to navigate
22 January 2019
The mobile banking app and customer service are great. Perks could be improved upon. Overdraft is fine.
22 January 2019
The mobile app is brilliant and the service I have received has been helpful and professional. The only thing I would like more would be a better interest and maybe some extra perks to having that account.
22 January 2019
Mobile banking is straightforward and easy to use. The money managing tools could be improved e.g. showing summary of all money in and out by type of payment. Customer service in stores has been good every time - friendly and helpful staff! I have been with this account for a number of years and wouldn't want to leave! It's simple and easy, with no overdraft to worry about
22 January 2019
I have had this account with nationwide for over 5 years now. The benefits are good, overdrafts, no extra charges abroad, no extra charges if DD is missed and all this is available till I'm 23. The customer service I have never had a problem with , they've always been helpful and resolved any problems. The only issue I have had is i have had a lot of hacks over the years and 100's of pounds going out of my account for various different places. Fortunately I have always managed to get this back but it's still stressful having to sort it out. The app is good, the only downside to the app is having to use a card reader when adding someone to send money to, it's a nightmare and they could really think of an easier way for this! Overall a good bank.
