As per page 38, you are allowed "up to 3 in either your sole name or in joint names". To maximise the rewards as a couple, it would be best to each have 3 accounts in sole names (for 6 total) rather than tying up any of them as joint accounts.
Agreed. My fiancee and I each hold 3 Reward sole accounts and 1 shared Ultimate Reward. If Ultimate Reward doesn't work for you I'd get that account changed to a normal Current Account.
Yes I feared as much: Ah well here's a PITA: OH has 2 and (my) joint. As the joint already exists, she can't get a 3rd solo. Shame. I know what you're gonna say - but I can't
Why not change the joint account in to a standard 'Current Account'? That would then free you both up to open a sole Reward Account.
