Now you’re a teenager you’re expected to earn and manage your own money.
For this you’ll need two accounts: a transaction account, and a savings account. Why two? Because you use them for different things.
It’s my money
The best thing about growing up and earning your own money is choosing how you spend it. When you’re finishing school, learning to drive and becoming independent, you realise how much money your parents used to spend on you!
We’ve all got things we want to spend money on: clothes, going out, sports gear, make-up, mobile phone cards, games – there’s no shortage of things to buy and no shortage of activites to pack into your day, which is why you prefer to use a card rather than carry cash.
