    I agree dm, would rather someone else had bought it, but it has to be better than it going to the wall, I hope so anyway. Maybe he wants a fresh start with a respected brand?

    Have H4lifax changed how they define different DDs to meet the reward t&cs? In the past 2 to T3sco bank were fine. I now have 2 to PO Savings and meet the deposit requirements but no rewards showing?

    Thanks

    I had a shock when I last logged into lloyds when I saw a large positive balance...for some reason my Scottish Widows pension fund has now turned up in in my lloyds online banking....

    My DKs hfax savings accounts have turned up on my DWs online banking with transactions enabled even though I am the nominee. I wonder if I need compensating for this failure to protect mine and their interests by ensuring that only the correct person can withdraw funds....

    I've had a nightmare with 3rd party mandates then showing up in my app. Someone needs to make the banks understand that most people only want 3rd party mandates to help out when things go wrong, not to have a daily transaction list that runs on and on. Now that kids use contactless for every little thing, the lists don't stop.

    This new system of car tax is a government scam - not only do you pay for a full month even if you only buy a car a few days before the end of a month, they also only refund you full months on existing cars from the date that they receive the update, not the date of the sale, so a few days the other way and you lose a month there too. The government are winning at both ends.

    As there is no physical tax disc to print, it could very easily be processed pro-rata for the date of either transaction, whether starting or stopping, without any technical issue at all.

    Rant over!

    I agree though that they should find a way of changing it so they can run it from a specific date rather than the old start of the month thing.

    Sorry, it's me again!

    Had a good trip to town
    Started with free coffee and cake at John L's,

    Favourite clothes shop in Grainger Market had 50% sale, so bought 2 linen tunics/dresses for the price of one.

    Deposited the cheque from an under payment from Friends provident 5+ years ago.

    Waities shop - with the combination of RTCs, 6 off wys 30, and 3 410 I managed to get a 52 shop down to 22.31. (i know mhoc would do better .. lol)

    In that shop I now have 8 x meals for 2 (may need a little veg or store cupboard stuff adding) so I am a very happy pip!
    Obviously 'bought' another coffee in that for my bus trip home.

    Only extravagance was special cheese for the lovely shop in the market

    When I got home and opened the post what do I find? another set of 4 6 off when you spend 30 for waites!!
    I'm going to have to go twice a week to use them up!!
