Having the wrong student account can cost you lots of hard earned dollars. Many of us get a shock when we actually see how much the banks are charging us a month, but this doesn’t have to be the case. If you pick the right bank account then you can use your funds for more important things, like travelling the world or going out with friends.

In our opinion, the best student account Scotiabank’s Student Banking Advantage Plan. This no-fee account offers unlimited transactions, unlimited e-transfers, and the ability to receive Scene points for free movies.

CIBC’s Advantage for Students is are other good alternatives. CIBC’s account offers unlimited free transactions and unlimited e-transfers.

Other options are bank with PC Financial or Tangerine Bank, but these banks have much fewer physical locations and it can be difficult to get help when you need it. You can find more about online accounts here.
