    Bank Account/Debit Card.

    I'm currently with HSBC and find them pretty naff tbh. + I have a Solo account as it was opened when I was 16, now I'm 18 I would like Visa, I don't earn hardly anything, don't really want an over draft, just wanted to know which are good banks, and what offers are on for joining one? Quidco? + Free gifts? Anything good going? Thanks.

    Visa is a credit card isn''t it?

    What problems do you have with HSBC? I've been with them for over a year now, never had a problem and am about to open an Online Saver account with them.

    Bleh, like instore I go in, and I had lost my card one guy gave me money, went in the next day and woman was like we dont give money in here, just wait for you card or something being all annoying so I cba. Visa I think is definatly a debit too tho. + With all the news recently about them I don't fancy staying with them

    'Visa Electron' is a debit card, 'Visa' is a credit card.

    Fair enough. [url]www.moneysupermarket.com[/url] Have a gander at the rates on there. Nothing I can recommend since I'm 16 and don't use Visa, just Solo/Switch.

    You may be better than me at saving Cant get much interest on the 20p … You may be better than me at saving Cant get much interest on the 20p or w/e that remains in my account after the first day of being paid.:giggle:



    haha. Well I'm happy with whats sitting there at the minute, but it will be gone since I've just got back from a weekend way where all expenses were paid for

    Though, if you put a small percentage of your money in an ISA, I'm sure you'd be happy when the interest is paid

    A small percentage of my 20p? Nah I will try one day, need more hours at work too ^^ lol.

    You get Visa Debit cards too not just Visa Credit,more places take it shops and online than Visa Electron.
    HSBC versions of a debit card is a Maestro,least thats what we got from there.Most of these debit cards are linked onto a a current account.

    I tried to use the Coral site the other day with quidco, signed up with my card, they said they have to do a check to see if I'm 18 or not as these cards can be for under 18. Then it said they couldnt check and I'm now suspended.

    I meant for like the totesport one etc. I got banned but the quidco is still on It still took the tenner off me :P

    I am with Barclays and i have a Visa Debit card and only have a basic account with them, never had a problem yet with them.

    Go with Nationwide you will get a visa Debit card.

    They have been great with me.

    Visa Electron is the one you want to go for, well thats what i have, got it from Barclays, takes 5 days in the post.

    Visa Electron is still not a "full" Visa debit card. I had the same problem with age verification on Betfair so it does not prove you're over 18.
