    "MoneySavers in Scotland will have to wait until autumn 2018 to see the new polymer tenners spitting out of cash machines."

    Factually incorrect MSE

    Money savers in Scotland will receive polymer tenners from ATMs once the Scottish Banks have launched their notes which is understood to be September and October. Once launched they will be using the notes in ATMs. I hardly think late October 2017 could be classed as Autumn 2018.
    Misleading sensationalism at its worst, time to pull your socks up MSE.

    Is it only me that cant stand these plastic notes? Far too slippy and easy for one to slide out of your pocket when getting something else out.
    Im a board guide on Pie Making Moneysaving. I'm a volunteer to help the pie production & consumption run smoothly. I can help merge tastes and fillings. Any pies made are mine & are not those of other Moneysavingexperts. Im a board guide not a qualified baker and as such do not make every type of pie. If you spot a quiche or flan please report it.

    I was living in Vietnam when they switched to plastic notes some years ago. (And it's only notes there, and attempt to introduce coins failed. So notes are really used alot.)

    On balance I prefer paper notes if they are clean and fresh. Can't beat it. Anyone been to the Czech Republic? Their notes always seem nice and new. Is it because people take care of them? Or is it because they are replaced often. Not sure.

    BUT, I prefer plastic ones to well-circulated paper ones. Plastic ones do wear out, but they don't get smelly in the process.

    I don't like thedesign of the new 5. The colours are gaudy and too bluish. It looks like they're printed on an ink jet with one colour missing. I do like the fact it is smaller. Wish they'd bring forward the new 20 and make a smaller 50. These notes are too big.

    I'm struggling to find much interest in this story. In my own lifetime, there have been numerous paper note changes and so this one is no different.

    Personally, I wish we would all just move to a cashless society. Virtually every single transaction I carry out these days, is on debit card. I find carrying money, any money, a bit of a bind to be honest. I cannot understand for the life of me why we're still using paper and coins. It just seems a total waste of time to me.

    Whilst preferring the old paper notes, I certainly wouldn't mind a bucket full of the new plastic ones.
