    Everything about PNC was great, I got my account activated in couple days, there was no fees for student's account, and overdraft protection, the only missing thing about them is that I didn't get a Chip-card, I'm still waiting for it.
    One problem I had with them, when I changed my address, they changed the account address but not the card address and I had to go through hard times with their customer support to solve this problem. Other than this everything was great.

    I have had nothing but good service with PNC. No monthly fees, overdraft protection, and ATM reimbursement really help out as a college student who doesn't have much cash. Their customer support is second to none and I have had nothing but good experiences with them. I plan to have my future checking and savings accounts with PNC, and I look forward to using their services.

    I love this account with PNC! It is perfect for me right now for several reasons. The best feature is that you do not have to maintain a minimum balance. This is such a huge stress relief because as a student you are broke majority of the time and need to use all the money you have.

    I absolutely love having my bank account through PNC. I have the PNC Virtual Wallet Student Account, and love that I don't incur any monthly fees. A lot of accounts that offer no fees have a bunch of different stipulations-like making you keep a higher minimum balance in your checking account at all times, but with this account, I don't have to. Not having to worry about what dropping below a certain minimum balance makes this account great! One of the features besides the Virtual Wallet that I use a lot is online bill pay. I was able to set up all my bills, so once I get my different bills each month, all I have to do is log in, choose the company that I want to pay, (Example: My Capital One Credit Card) type in the amount that I want to pay, along with the date that I want it paid, and click select. I also love that you can see you previous billing history of what accounts you have paid in the past. This is exceptionally great because I don't have to worry about saving and filing a receipt. I highly recommend the PNC Virtual Wallet Student Checking Accounts!
