    Husband received a cheque from Barclaycard - some kind of compensation re minimum payment ? ... anyhow no longer a branch of Barclays ( our bank ) in our village ... can we pay this in to any bank ( think only one still operating TSB / HSBC ? within walking distance ) We can travel to a Barclays so not a huge issue . Thanks ..

    You should be able to pay it into any bank at which your husband has an account. Otherwise there are various cheque cashing companies, but they charge a fee (usually around 4%).

    You should be able to pay it in at a Post Office. I presume you need to take your bank card with you.
    Our BAnk is closing in a few weeks and is the last one in our small town. We have been told that the Post Office will take our cheques and we can get cash from the local supermarket ATM.

    I don't think it matters who issued the cheque, you can pay it in anywhere as long as the account name is who it's made out to.

    We paid a check into Lloyds recently using the Lloyds app. You scan the cheque using your phone into the app and they credit your account. Brilliant. Didn't have to drive 5 miles to nearest branch. Do Barclays do the same?

    I did that, too. It was a breakthrough indeed. The cheque had to be under £500 for some reason.

    If you have a paying in book, fill out as necessary and post to your bank.

    They'll be less cheques and poles around in future. I blame Virgin and OpenReach.

    You can do that with HSBC as well.

    I remember getting a cheque last year and having to think rather hard about what one is supposed to do with such things. It's a bit like someone from my uni days whom I keep in touch with, and who doesn't have email or a mobile phone. Communication involves writing letters: where do you find stamps? Where is the post box? :eek::eek::eek:

    Oddly, I use cheques myself very rarely, but in my new job since leaving teaching I am self-employed on one-off short contracts and I am frequently paid by cheque. I actually like popping into the bankto pay them in, but I live in a small town where the cashiers know who I am and greet me personally - and I still have a bank to pop into.

    All except one this year... (but we do have a fair amount invested in them).
