HSBC changes terms and conditions - and it is to my benefit

  1. We are changing how we deal with your instructions to cancel recurring debit card payments so you can cancel these with us or the retailer.
 
2. We are changing the way we deal with Direct Debits, standing orders and bill payments that you ask us to make on a future date. If there is an insufficient balance in your account to make the payment in the morning, we will do a further check to see if you have a sufficient balance for the payment to be made at 3.30pm.
 
3. From 8 May 2013 you will be able to withdraw cash, pay in cash or cheques and check your current account balance at Post Office® branches.

So HSBC are finally falling into line with instructions the FSA made over a year ago.
Better late than never I suppose!

In 1997 there was a £5 coin issued to celebrate Queen's 50th wedding anniversary and Midland Bank gave them free to customers who'd had an account for at least 50 years.
I applied and got one  Smiley
My father spent his working life with Midland and opened a savings account for me when I was born in 1935. Albeit I couldn't supply account details they accepted this and sent coin.

I have one of the £5 coins as well but mine came from Lloyds.  I think I had to reserve it in advance.

What's the youngest age you can open a bank account at ?
I Recall having a Bank account when I was 11 so it must be lower than that.
The silly thing was my account was with the TSB, when I got to 20 I asked for a cheque book and they refused to give me one until I provided two references so I closed my account and went next door to the Nat West and opened an account with one one reference and got my cheque book.
