    I think the same, banking tends to update during the night 3am ish, have been caught out before with salary and nights out on the town ;o) Should be there by the morning for you.

    Yes..... I can 2nd that because I check all the time..... Mine updates at 2am in the morning, While they are updating the website usaully says logon unavaliable at this time for about 10 mins but its ok after that. Lols before i had online banking I used to sit outside the cash machine in the car and you could tell when the cash machine was updating peoples accounts at 2am... you would be amazed at the amount of people sat around at 2am outside cash machines waiting for thier money to go into thier accounts.:w00t::santa::gift::stocking:

    Why?

    I've just checked my bank and had my tax credits go in this morning (24th Dec!)... I usually get mine on a Tues, so no doubt today's is next weeks payment...

    DarkKnight;7317429

    Why?



    Because some people know what its like to not have financial freedom,visa cards,morgauges and £40,000 Landrovers at Xmas and it's a choice between freezing in the house cause the pre-payment meters run out or gettig some cash out to fetch some along with some shopping to eat. Aint i nice for those who dont know what it's like for some people and they take it for granted? Merry xmas.:santa::gift::stocking:

    Why does having a car supposed to mean I have money? and I doubt thats you either as you did nt understand the need for people waiting for thier money week in week out struggling on benefits... Driving a battered 7 year old car on a budget doe'snt mean a persons got £1000's in the bank & being able to afford a meal in a resterant ordering £20+ bottles of wine and shopping as if money does'nt matter to them. Some people live from benefit payday to the next payday and from hand to mouth on the breadline...Maybe they go without the Sky full package and they shop in primark..tesco, asda and netto rather than Next,M&S and such like... How id love to freeze someones credit card and bank account off somebody that doe'snt understand and takes money for granted for 3 months and give em £100 per 2 weeks to live on...I reckon they'd soon be the ones realising why people sit outside cash machines at 2am.

    Oh....SO I suppose I went and and paid cash then did i? I supppose i went out and paid £800 cash on a plasma and £400 cash on a laptop or I suppose i went and stuck it on the imaginary platinum gold visa card .....I suppose i drink every night down the pub and go to the bookies every day and have a paper delivered everyday and smoke 300 fags a week and im on a £500 a week drug habit! NO! some people car' nt afford to pay cash and theres such a thing as credit on the never never , i dont drink,smoke,bet and i aint so stupid taking drugs so some spend thier money wise every week and go without other things.

    Other people spend money like it grows on trees and as if cash dont matter to them.

    So Im suppose to sell the plasma @ £15 a week ?and if i pay up early i get the intrest back.. some people pay out for nice things weekly on a budget and at the end of the week near to payday run out of stuff...... not like the people who work who get thier £200 - £300 shopping delivered a week! then p*ss off out in thier bmws and company cars to buy whatever they can and stick on thier credit cards or pay cash for at the end of the week....dont know they are born.

    Dont take it for granted that you might be one of the millions out of work soon no matter what or how well u do ur job
