    Where can I see which Tesco account is joint? 8th Jul 18 at 1:07 PM
    Hello,
    I have online banking and mobile app with Tesco, however I cannot see where it says the name of the account holder and if it is joint or not.
    Any idea?
    thanks!

    Log on as yourself. List the account numbers.

    Ask your partner to log on. List the account numbers.

    Compare the lists. Any account on both lists is joint.

    To avoid future confusion you can rename the accounts as my/mine, or joint.

    Why don't you and your 'partner' know? You opened the account! Remember you are jointly and severally liable for any payments/costs on the account. I'd get yourself a more reliable partner.

    Why would any account be a joint account if you don't have a partner - who would you have opened it with otherwise, given the risks of a joint account?

    Do they have a secure message function?

    Do you each have debit cards, you for both accounts and the other person for one? Compare cards.

    I expect it's not uncommon for someone to have a joint account with a parent. My father had at least one joint account with his father.

    Here is the number to call when your cold has gone.

    Local rate number so wont cost you that much, out of your scheduled minutes if using a mobile.

    0345 835 3353

    What did your last servant die of?

    Crawl out of your sick bed and try this:
    • Log on to online banking
    • Navigate to "Manage Your Account"
    • Then to "Your Document Store"
    • Then "View Your Statements"

    Is there one name on the statement, or two?

    Harsh! I was frustrated by the same problem with another bank recently although I only had to wait until my co-account holder got home to follow Vortigem's first method. I did not think of the "view your statements" idea. But I do remember feeling quite annoyed that the bank did not make it obvious whether an account was joint or not.
