    Best bank account for 13 year old boy 12th Oct 16 at 1:30 PM
    Can anyone recommend a first time bank account for a 13 year old boy? My bank Nat West do something called the Pigsy Club but that sounds rather babyish!

    It is only a name and for ease of opening I would do it in the same as my main bank.

    Halifax will give a cashcard and Santander will give the choice of a cashcard or VISA debit card if ease of access is an important issue.

    +1 vote for Nationwide FlexOne - pretty much full banking facilities.

    The NatWest account that comes with Pigby is a First Saver, which is basically just a savings account - no card, no passbook, statements every 3 months.

    Remember the saying: if it looks too good to be true it almost certainly is.
