Are student current accounts worth opening even if I don’t need an overdraft?

I am going to uni this year and I do not need an overdraft, nor will I be applying for a loan. Is it really worth me applying for student current accounts when I wont be using any of the “services”?

I would say so, just for the perks…….so many banks now offer internet offers, freebies, discounts off laptops, mp3 players, usb sticks and some useful stuff for uni. So even if you don’t necessarily need a students account I am guessing you need an account in general, for rent etc, so why not take advantage of the goodies?

    You may not need it now but 6 months in and the money stops flowing you will probably want to reconsider. Even if you are set for your ¾ years then you are still going to need an account to pay rent and fees etc.
