    Advice on best secondary/joint account needed! 17th Apr 18 at 12:24 PM
    Afternoon all,

    I'm planning on setting up a joint current account with my girlfriend so that we're drawing on a shared resource for family expenses, but I don't want to switch my existing personal account. I need something with full online access, and it'd be nice to be able to get some perks!

    Does anybody have any recommendations?

    Many thanks,

    I'm looking at getting the Natwest Everyday Reward Bank Acc
    2 monthly fee
    2% back in Rewards on eligible household bills
    At least 1% back in Rewards at our partner retailers
    Pay at least 1,500 into your account every month

    Would have got the Santander 123 but do not have a mortgage with them or huge savings so cashback wasn't working out as good for the fee

    Useful tip, thank you! I could stick 20,000 or so in savings somewhere if it would make a difference. As I'm not switching accounts, I'll have to manually transfer any household bills, but it might be worth it. I mainly want an account where I can have a second cardholder - with a spending limit, if such a thing even exists - and have money flowing through for shopping and whatnot, hopefully earning a little cashback or something along the way.
