Ok, I picked up on this on the other forum because there’s a discussion about cheque books. Apparently, in order to open a new savings account by post, one still has to do so by cheque with some Building Societies. My only thought on this is quite frankly, wow! and that should be read in the sarcastic tone it is meant to.
I honestly thought Banks and Building Societies would move away from asking people to make deposits by cheque, seeing as many of them no longer even issue cheque books. Basically, if you don’t have a cheque book and you want to open a new savings account and you can only do so by post, if you don’t have a cheque book, then you’re kind of stuffed. It’s hardly progressive banking in my opinion, more like banking trapped in the 20th Century
