KeyPoint Student Checking: It’s Not a Vegetable, but It’s Good for You

6/4/2013
If you’re a teenage student or young adult in college, stop reading this now. We all understand that you are all-knowing experts on all things earthly, and unearthly. There’s absolutely no circumstance under which someone older than you would have anything valuable to say to you. No bit of helpful advice. Nothing that could ever be good for you.
 
Money management? You’ve got this down pat. (Do teens even say that anymore?) After all, 87% of people between the ages of 12 and 17 claim they know at least an average amount about finances, according to a recent poll. Nevermind that 24% of those same people also think a debit card is used to borrow cash. That’s probably just faulty polling or something their friends told them to say. We get it.
 

Parents Looking for Student Checking Accounts

 
Instead, allow me to address Silicon Valley parents. Maybe you’re a software engineer new to the country and you believe a good student checking option would help your children understand how to manage their daily finances.
 
KeyPoint’s Student Checking is the ideal solution. It’s free for those ages 16 to 26: no monthly fees, no minimum balance requirements, and accountholders can access their money from anywhere with mobile banking and online services such as bill pay. There’s also 24/7 support available by online chat or phone.
 
With KeyPoint Student Checking, teens and young adults receive a VISA debit card and immediate access to more than 4,000 shared branches and more than 28,000 Co-Op ATMs nationwide with no service charges.
 
Teens and young adults will learn that buying the Silicon Valley real estate they dream of starts with understanding the basic principles of money management. KeyPoint’s Student Checking is the perfect place to start, because financial education is an important part of an overall life education.
 
So go talk to your kids about Student Checking. Though I suspect some have read through this entire post already, just to be defiant.
