    Hi, i'm looking to get a debit card but dont know which is the best bank to do it with and wether to get a young persons account etc... anyone got any advise on which is the best??

    If you live in England, I'd suggest Barclays. Lloyds and TSB are a bit rubbish, I've been with both, and Barclays is good for the online stuff too. Their customer service is also so much better, and they help you with things you're not sure about without any issues. Really though, it depends what's good for you, and what's local.

    I like natwest, but honestly for you it won't make much difference. Get one that is convenient for you to go and set up.

    Had nothing but problems with natwest. I'm with nationwide.
