Student Checking

An Account That Grows With Them

Why use a piggy bank when you can have a real account? Student Checking is designed for teens and young adults. It comes with many great features to make banking easy and accessible on the go, including:

  • Visa® Debit Card
  • Free Mobile App and Internet Banking access 24/7
  • No monthly maintenance fee
  • Free unlimited use of Saratoga National Bank ATMs
  • ATM reimbursements for out-of-area students (up to $10/month)
  • Free Debit Card Alerts
  • Free Online Statements (required to avoid service fee)
  • Free starter checks

Easy ATM Access

All Student Checking accounts come with free, unlimited access to our ATMs.

Going away to school? We'll make it easy for students to access their cash without a branch nearby: As an out-of-area student, we won't charge a fee to use another bank's ATM and we'll reimburse you up to $10 per monthly statement cycle toward other banks' ATM fees! Just ask your Branch Manager if you're eligible for this great feature.
