Well, I've had a bit of a runaround with trying to open a bank account. First of all I went into my local Barclays branch and applied for the basic account. It was going well and because my details already on their system it didn't take too much time to complete. The lady said I would receive details of the new account through the post in a couple of weeks. I waited and waited but 3 or 4 weeks went by and nothing. I popped into the branch yesterday and asked the same lady what was happening and she said that I had been turned down because barclaycard was one of the people I had included in my BR. Oh...
So, I have telephoned co-op today to open an account (at least I owe them nothing) and hopefully fingers crossed they have accepted me for the cashminder account.
