    Best Current Account for 17 Year Old

    Best Current Account for 17 Year Old 9th Feb 08 at 7:40 PM
    My son is in his last year at school and is 18 this week. We have an investment maturing on his 18th birthday and were just going to put the money into an ISA for him. The best cash ISA at the moment is the A & L but requires a link to a current account. I don't want to link it to my current account so am looking for a decent current account for him to open.

    Any advice or reccommendations please?

    Hollie I would love too but dont have an account.

    Can I suggest you go to the referrers board in this forum... it's another sub forum like this one. You'll probably get ambushed with offers.

    Or if you are really pushed, use quidco.com for cashback on sign up.

    How much interest does an A&L current account pay? Abbey pay 6% on their 16-18 year old current account, which may be a better deal, but everyone else seems more interested in getting their own referral than getting the OP the best deal.

    Edit: Should have said, A&L are paying 50quid through Quidco to open a current account, so that's a far better deal anyways than getting 25 through a referral

    For the record, I do work for Abbey but gain nothing unless you happen to open a new account through my branch.
