Need a new bank account

Basically wanting to open my first adult bank account so I can get to buy my own things from the internet/paypal etc instead of having to give my mum cash upfront!

How do I go about getting it as I have been told you have to go in for a meeting etc but I work 8.30am till 5pm and saturday is my only free day :(

Any help/advice much appreciated :)

hi depending on who you want to bank with you can open an account online with some banks.

Do you just want a basic current account?
If so many of the banks let you apply online, they send you the paperwork & then you sign & take them into a branch :)
plenty banks open saturday mornings now
Go to a bank, any bank on your lunch break,

Ask to open an account, sign papers (take id-passport etc)

wait to receive debit card, cheque book and piggy bank through the post

was just going to post that. Ive just opened up a current account on behalf off someone and it was straightforward. That was with the Halifax. Just ask at the info desk for a form. Need some id though.

Be warned as most banks will want to flog you something, thats why they want to give you an appointment.
Go on your lunch break or book a days leave simple if it was that important
cant find fault with this bank
