Bank accounts for people with a poor credit history

23 October2009

A poor credit history can affect more than just your chances of obtaining credit: it can also make it difficult to get a regular bank account.

This can be more of a problem than it may first seem. Today, bank accounts are a major part of our daily lives, and without them we might have nowhere safe to store our earnings. Most banks will offer a basic bank account to people with a poor credit history - but these can be quite limited, compared with a current account.

However, a Think Banking account is different.

Think Banking account for poor credit

The Think Banking account offers the benefits of a basic bank account, and more.

The Think Banking account is a managed bank account. You`ll have your own personal Money Manager, who will take care of your finances and budget your money for you, so you should always have enough put aside to pay your bills.

They`ll also be there to help you with any queries you may have.

You`ll also receive a Maestro card, giving you the freedom to pay or get cashback in any shop or restaurant with the Maestro logo, and withdraw cash from any Maestro cash machine worldwide.

You`ll never be charged for going overdrawn or bouncing payments with a Think Banking account. All you`ll pay is a one-off set-up fee and a monthly fee that covers the service we provide.

No credit check required

Almost anyone can get a Think Banking account. All you need to do is apply, prove your identity and let us set up your account.

Even if you`ve been made bankrupt in the past, or if you have no credit history whatsoever (e.g. you`re new to the country), Think Banking could help you.
