I’m still lurking about here team, not had much of a chance to post recently as I settle in the UK!
Firstly, shout out to BNZ for the quality of their internet banking options, and to banks in general in New Zealand for their range of consumer products; you’re lightyears ahead of the UK, where I can have one cheque account and one savings account (at 0.5%pa interest!). None of the major consumer banks here have any decent offerings in terms of subaccounts or high interest savings, and the internet banking is pretty rudimentary.
But, I am still using my BNZ YouMoney account, and will be sending money back. I have a problem just at the moment, to with a cheque, so I was hoping someone from BNZ could provide some advice.
I had a stopover in Singapore on my way to the UK, and booked a tour which was eventually cancelled and refunded. They have posted the cheque to my address in New Zealand; the cheque is actually made out to BNZ, with ‘Pay to the ORder of’ given as my name (rather confusing!). THe amount is in Singaporean dollars.
My step mum attempted to take it into the Havelock North branch and deposit into my account (not her own!), but the branch informed it her was not possible, without her being a signatory on my account. They provided her the forms to be made a signatory, which I am happy to do, but that will require a lot of time, effort, and postage.
Is there some way to get this cheque into my account with posting forms halfway across the world?
