Current Accounts

What happens after I submit my current account application online?

If accepted, you will be asked to sign your agreement online. If we require additional information, this will be clearly explained at the end of your application.


After signing your agreement, we will then send you a welcome pack in the post. Your PIN and your card will arrive separately within 10 working days. Your PIN should arrive first.


Once your card arrives, activate it using either Online Banking or our Mobile Banking App. You'll then be able to use the card and start collecting Tesco Clubcard points. For joint accounts both cards need to be activated before any access to deposit or withdraw funds is available.


Please note you will not be able to use your new account until you have activated your debit card.


Should we be unable to offer you a current account, in most cases you would receive an instant decision.


I applied for a current account online and was accepted but I've had no more info than that not been asked to sign anything and have tried to apply again but won't let me do anything. What do I do next?
