Online cheque clearing time checker

Posted in 'Banking' by Barry Stamp

10 November 2011

Anyone who has struggled to work out how long it takes for a cheque to ‘clear’ will find invaluable the a href=" http://www.chequeandcredit.co.uk/246/-/page/cheque-checker/ " target="_blank">online cheque clearing time checker.

The checker calculates the maximum time it takes for a paid-in cheque to start to earn interest, (or to reduce interest if your account is overdrawn), when the funds will be made available to draw against, and when the cheque finally clears and there is no risk of the cheque being returned unpaid (bouncing).

In the checkmyfile Banking and Credit Card Survey, respondents rated their banks very differently in terms of customer satisfaction. RBS, HSBC and NatWest filled 3 of the top 5 places and each offers a basic current account with no fee, which should suit most needs, and these banks are big enough to cope with more complicated stuff should the need arise.

Tesco cut Clubcard points on their credit card

Poor old Tesco. They get hit by the increasing dominance of the ‘discount supermarket’, which impacts on sales and profits for their supermarket business. You’d think that they’d at least get a break on their banking arm but unfortunately a change in EU law for capping merchant fees has meant that they have some bad news for some of their credit card customers.

The EU cap has led to some credit card providers, such as Capital One, withdrawing their cashback and reward schemes for new customers. Now Tesco has announced that their Clubcard Credit Card will halve the amount of points earned from November onwards, offering one point for every £8 spent. At the moment customers receive a Clubcard point for every £4 spent.
