    Hi

    After all the excellent reccomendations for the Nationwide Flex Account card I have just been having a look at it on the web.

    It doesn't appear to give me anything that my HSBC Bank Card wont give me.

    Just another bank account.

    Am I missing something ?

    Never used HSBC but check HSBC account against withdrawals abroad. You may find it beneficial.

    Nationwide dont let me go overdrawn at all, so I cant go even 1p over and incur charges like some banks either

    Do you know Geo, I dont know, the missus does it all, I just earn it and help to spend it.

    This however could set the cat amongst the pigeons, a bit of family strife may be in order here.

    Applied for this card yesterday and got approved on line. Just have to promise to credit the account with £100 when the card arrives.

    Much better deal than my Barclays connect, I paid a small fortune in charges whist in Europe for 5 weeks last year. Especially as only drawing small amounts at a time so as you are not carrying too much cash, I do not like carrying too much for security reasons as well as stopping the girls impulse buying:BigGrin:

    If your card gets cloned it won't be you trying to go overdrawn:Doh:

    nowt to surrender to Jim you asked for advice. No offence intended, card cloning has happened to a number of people on this site, nice to have some sort of protection don't you think

    About 2 years ago someone (not me) ran up over 2K on my barclays connect card. Thank goodness I had some protection otherwise I would have had to find the money from somewhere.

    I only had a £100 overdraft limit at the time.

    So it pays to have the extra protection of a card where they dont allow you to go overdrawn or over your overdraft limit.

    Hi Jim, I think thats about the only area the flexi wins hands down
    No charges whatsoever for withdrawalls and a good rate of exchnge and according to Russel (Finance Wizard/Guru) the only one doing it at the time he posted, I wondered if things have changed as it was awhile back now

    Nearly fell for that Pammy, lower down the Nationwide DEBIT card is tops

    The Nationwide's Flexaccount Visa Debit card trumps all the other cards as it doesn't load anywhere in the world, is free of interest (unless you're overdrawn) and doesn't charge for withdrawing cash.

    No I'm alright, I've just had a lie down.:Rofl1:

    Glad you read it all though - I got to a point where I wasn't sure which, what was best:Doh:
