West Bromwich RS

Only available to existing customers. Could I open a Limited Access Saver for £1 and then open RS straight after? Can't see any minumum term requirement before RS avail.  Thank you

    Yes, I do believe you can do that I’m sure others have on this forum. I was lucky as I live within one of the local post codes.


    I choose the rooms that I live in with care,
    The windows are small and the walls almost bare,
    There's only one bed and there's only one prayer;
    I listen all night for your step on the stair.

    It seems to work, but be aware you have to upload photo ID* during the application process for the RS account.  The application process for the WeBSave limited access account didn't require this step... no doubt WestBrom have some logic for this.

    *Although the script says photo ID is required, it does appear some non-photo documents are also acceptable.

    Opened the WB regular saver in December with no probems and registered for online access with pin. Managed to log in and out.

    Today, tried to log in again with same details but no luck. Message pops up asking me to register a pin to use the service. Very annoying.

    "you must register a PIN in order to access this service. To setup your PIN please call our customer service team on 0345 241 3785."

    Not being an existing customer, i opened a saver account first without funding it, next day opened the Regular Saver.
    No problem

    Both I and my partner experienced exactly this problem when we tried to check our January deposits on 4-Jan.  We talked to Customer Services and went through the PIN registration process again.  We were able to login again on the 4th and still working yesterday, so I think WestBromBS systems had some sort of hiccup between 28-Dec and 4-Jan.
