    I still haven't got my debit card from HSBC, yet I received everything else (except the MP3 player, but I don't care about that!) over a week or so ago. I know they're busy, but I don't understand why just my card hasn't come. Should I investigate?!

    applied for an HSBC account a month ago, still havent recieved even a notification if they have seen it.... i need an international account.

    when i called they told me there was a lot of work right then, and i should expect a 3 week delay...

    did i start the ball rolling too late, or is there still a chance to get this damn account? or any account for that matter????

    also, someone mentioned interest being higher with internet banking, is this applicable for HSBC...do they even have internet banking?

    At the moment i have given the SLC the account number of a simple bank account i own. i hav opened a HSBC account but have heard NOTHING from them as yet :confused: im worried the 1st payment may go into the account that i hav given details for...can i change the details after the 1st payment has gone in? HSBC say that you can only hav a student account with them, so if the 1st payment of my student loan doesn't go in to their account will they assume i hav another student account and no tlet me open one with them?

    You can change your bank details after your first paymnt. And HSBC will be fine about the first payment not going there, as they haven't told you your bank details soi you have no other choice. And it can't be against the T&Cs as some people don't get a loan
