Alternative way to check my bank balance?

Recommended Posts

Right, I've had my "Natwest Adapt Account" for about 7 months now, and it's getting a real pain in the arse having to keep checking my balance by going to a cash machine!

 

I'm buying online more frequently now, and is getting hard to keep track of my payments, so I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any alternate was of checking my balance other than Online banking (im under 16) and the mobile phone banking (as my phone doesn't support it).

 

I'd appreciate it guys :)

 

Thanks.

Erm the good old fashioned way, do your own accounting.

 

Take a balance, then note down all income and expenditure.

Id try either online banking or mobile phone banking. Both of which you should be able to do.

wait 5 and a half months and then call them :smile:

or yeah, start noting down all your expenditures etc and do your own accounting ^_^ or just keep all of those topman receipts!

Yeahh, I tried doing that, but recently lost track, and yeah, just kinda hoped there would be something I could do now :/

 

Ah well, thanks for the help guys.

You missed Ramar's suggestion then? It's not just a windup. If you just make note of what you put in and what you take out, you'll know how much you have...

For some reason I thought you meant you lost track of waiting 5 months.

I'm guessing Natwest online doesn't work for that kind of account...?

 

It does, just not for under 16's :/

Have you tried online banking?

 

Read the thread.

Best thing to do if u don't want to go online, down bank or call them. Worked for me, now i know i am up on my finances which is where i want to be.
