KBC is offering €100 cash to students who open a current account with the bank before October 31st.
Are you one of the 80,887 new students preparing to descend upon college campuses in the coming weeks? If you are, you probably aren’t thinking too far beyond Wednesday…Leaving Cert results day!
But once you find out which course and college awaits you, there’ll be a tonne of other exciting decisions to make, such as: where to live, how to commute and how to do your hair on day one.
One thing you probably won’t be considering too highly right now is which bank to open an account with. It’s not the most exciting thing to think about, but it’s likely to be one of the first things you do during Freshers’ Week.
And KBC would love to be the bank that you choose! So much so that they’re offering €100 free cash to all students who open an account before October 31st.
Here’s how it works.
If you’re aged 17 or over and are registered with a third-level Irish institution for a course that requires more than 21 hours a week, you can get your hands on €100 cash by opening a current account with KBC before Halloween.
Once you open your account, €40 will transferred to you straight away. Following that, if you activate online and mobile banking and make 10 debit card transaction before December 31st, the remaining €60 will be awarded to you in January.
Sign-up incentives are nice but it’s always important to look at every feature of an account when considering which one is right for you.
With KBC, students get fee-free contactless payments, debit card transactions, ATM withdrawals and cashback, which is rarity with standard current account these days. And there are no quarterly maintenance fees for KBC student account holders either.
You can open a KBC Student Current Account here now.
A bank for life
KBC and Ireland’s other banks are particularly keen to recruit students to their ranks in the hope that they will stick with them until it's time to get a mortgage and other large loans down the line.
But for you students out there, that’s a worry for another day. Right now, you could make yourself €100 richer by simply signing up for a current account with KBC here.
