I was clearing out an old handbag and I found an old bank card for an account I don’t use anymore!! Thought I would check it out...turned out it had over £800 in it!!! OMG!! It’s like a little Christmas bonus from myself!! Yippee!!

Oh wow! That’s fab Partimers. I felt like I was winning when I found a tenner in an old coat pocket.

It's really heartening to hear something positive has happened to someone after all the vitriol and fighting recently.

No idea of (and don't want to know) which 'side' you were on, am just pleased to hear something happy.

We could certainly do with this right now, I do have an account I don't use either and it's with a separate bank to the one I have an app on my phone for. But it most likely only has 1 or 2p in it due to past interest accrued.

If I check it and discover I'm wrong, I'll come back to the thread grin

Yes, mine was like that YouRemindMe

I trotted along to the bank, with a pass book that looked as though it had something in it. Nope!

Still, I never had it, so I can’t miss it.

OOOH! Now where are all my old handbags? Probably only find a few pennies in mine!

lovemenorca Sat 14-Dec-19 11:45:33

Oh brill!

I did that with PayPal. Realised I had no idea, literally no idea, how much I had in there.
