Student Checking Account is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horrible My card was blocked after my money. Now I’m trying to get food but I can’t. I called customer service and no one answered. Also when the robot lady said to press 1 and someone will call me back. NOBODY CALLED ME BACK

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious I became a member of Fairwinds a while back to prepare for college, and I am glad that I did. Their services are great and easy to use, and paying with a Fairwinds card is just as easy. Joining Fairwinds was simple and I am surprised at how good it is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great service It's been about a month since I made a student account with Fairwinds and so far I've only had one problem but everything else is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment! I opened up a student checking account and I do not regret it at all! I’ve made it so that I receive notifications whenever my debit card gets used and it has been extremely helpful and it has given me a sense of security since I can immediately tell if a purchase was mine or not.
