Popped into a Halifax bank to put a cheque and some money in, saw there was massive queue so used the "Quick Deposit ATM machine" instead. I've used similar ones in HSBC and found them to process cheques and money very quickly. However, I was gobsmacked to see that it will take 6 DAYS for them to process my CASH deposit?! What gives? This is a current account and I know for fact that this would have been instantly available had I deposited at the counter. I've had to do another bank transfer as I've got direct debits coming out on Monday.
Certainly won't be using the Quick Deposit ATM machine again.
