I have had £1131.50 refunded to me by the Co-op Bank this week in respect of bank charges incurred over the last 6 years. These have been the banks charges for exceeding my overdraft limit, returned items and daily charges.

This is all due to the advice given by dchurch24, available on the current account board under the heading 'Bank charges - are the legal?'

Happy Bunny! :beer:

    More than likely bung it off my mortgage, or buy a new PC! Not sure yet, but being self employed and just had two weeks off over christmas, it is certainly useful!

  • Don't spend the lot on a PC that would be a waste! You can get a perfectly good PC for under £500 these days, check out the obvious places like Dell website and then shop around more! Use this website if needs be to search for a cheap one! Also when you do fine one haggle get extras and then some thrown in! PCs are a highly competative market. I happen to know people who build PCs and sell them for a living, first thing to do is research then spec you want and see if it would be cheaper just to upgrade the PC you have now?

  • Recommend a Dell - picked up a perfectly good PC for my Dad for £370, including a 19" flatscreen monitor. Bargain!

    If you decide on Dell, remember to go through QuidCo - you'll save an extra 5%. Wish I'd known about that before I purchased :|

    I recommend ebuyer, to save even more money, you could buy the parts you need and build it yourself (use a step by step guide freely available online) or if you can, ask someone who knows about computers to put it together for you for a few ££'s.


    It works out much cheaper than buying prebuilt.


    Ebuyer do also have built computers for sale too, so if you're not comfortable doing the above then you could always buy one prebuilt.
