Already a thread on this. Probably not surprising; YBS themselves don't offer a current account bar the quasi-current Cash Transactor and most likely the costs of providing one (especially one widely rinsed for free travel abroad) don't stack up against the benefits.

YBS Cash Transactor was withdrawn months ago. The equivalent is Coventry Building Society MoneyManager which is the only account of its type still open that I know of:

According to BBC News the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society brand is to disappear.

This does effectively leave Nationwide and Cumberland as the only building societies providing current accounts. In fact it leaves the number of mutual current account providers very low indeed - with the Co-op effectively demutualising and N&P no longer in the market, you've either got those two or a credit union if you want to bank with a mutual.

You can only open a Cumberland current account if you live in one of their operating area postcodes. Which excludes most folk on here.

If this proposal goes ahead and you hold a current account with us we will write to you to explain what you need to do next.





Note the word 'could' and the date 31-08-2017.

The book might be bought by Virgin Money. Did they not buy the savings business of Northern Rock? Plus they want a share of the current account market.

To top this off for N&P customers (especially those using as main bank account), they will shortly discover N&P do not support the Current Account Switch Service...

Yeah but they still don't offer a full feature current account after at least 3 years promising one. Unlikely.
