Get an additional bank account?

If you have a regular bank account, why not consider an additional bank account. Here are reasons why an additional bank account can be beneficial.

1. Keep your savings separate

An additional bank account will enable you to keep your savings separate. This will help you not to spend your savings by mistake.

2. Get another debit card

An additional debit card could be beneficial in case you damage or misplace your usual debit card. You will still be able to make transactions

3. Security when shopping

You can use your additional debit card for doing transactions online or to do your normal purchases. If you only keep a limited amount of money in the additional account, it will protect you from fraud in your main account.

4. Get more overdraft facility

With an additional bank account, you will get more overdraft facility.
