I remember when visiting Sussex that there was a
bank in the middle of the campus.... which one is it?
Barclays rings a bell, but I forget just about everything.
Since we're all kinda setting up our accounts now,
I might as well go for the convenient option here. ^o)
There's Barclays and HSBC banking on campus. Plus a Lloyds cash machine.
HSBC is nearest the first year accomodation. Barclays is on the edge of campus near the main entrance which I guess is more useful when your in your second/third years.
i know am glad they got HSBC, as just changed my account to a student account with them and got £50.00 from them, wish it was a 5 year young persons railcard but they stopped that
^^^ Yeah, I think I saw Natwest offering that,
it'd be really useful since I use the train all the damn time.
But hey, I'll get my railcard one way or another... it all works out.
im wiv barclays at teh mo, but was gonna change to natwest cos of the railcardas well as the fact they let u hav the biggest overdraft....butf there isnt one on campus do u reckon i should stick wiv barclays/change 2 hsbc??
its not so much needin to go to the branch, but more needing a cash point, cos i dont really wanna hav to travel into brighton everytime i need to get some money from the bank!!
Am I right in assuming that the nearest NatWest is in Brighton..?
Railcard only costs £20 so use the £50 HSBC give you to buy one and have £30 left over!
Ah ok didn't realise that one! I reckon i'll still go with HSBS as its convinient and because the £50 will buy me a couple of weeks food!
have joined hsbc but am gonna join up with natwest get the railcard and close the account little while later, as the railcard is a *gift* so they can't take it back lol.
I've gone for HSBC and the £50, hopefully i'll get a confirmation letter tomorrow.
yeah my mum said to negotiate too, she reckns she can get them to just giv me £100...hmmm...not so sure!! i mite try and get them to swap the coach card for a rail card...
Well t'other day we had a go...
HSBC said just to "tick which incentive" we'd want, either the mp3 player or the CDs.
Basically, I want neither, their only other option was apply online and get £50.
Since the railcard is SO much more convenient (I travel by train a lot), as well as more
practical, I've decided to bank with Natwest instead. Even if there's an HSBC on campus,
it's not like I'll be withdrawing cash every time I pass through! It'll be fine this way.
I've gone HSBC, with the £50
My confirmations taking bloody ages! I did it last Thursday or Friday afternoon (can't remember) and I haven't got a letter.
