Am I eligible for a joint account despite having a current account?

Occasional Browser

Am I eligible for a joint account despite having a current account?

I've got a current account, a saver account and a mastercard.

Can I have a joint current account as well?

Online application system says no.

Hi @PeterHall

 

I'm sorry to hear that you've been having problems setting up your second account. It might be best to call us on 0345 835 3353, available 24/7, and my colleagues can check on the issue you've been experiencing.

I know I and my wife can have two current accounts each but can we have a joint Account as well?

This would not be possible @tfc1959 as you can only hold 2 current accounts with Tesco Bank.

I had a similar issue to PeterHall above.

 

I have 1x Single Current Account and 1x Saver Account and could not set up a Joint Account online so gave the team a call. I was told that you cannot open a joint account if you already have a single and a saver, do you know why this is? They were unable to give me a reason.

Hi @Eleven, I'm sorry to hear this. If you have a Clubcard Plus savings account it may impact the application for a second Current Account due to some of the accounts having an overdraft facility. Please send a private message to @Tesco-Bank with your name, DOB and postcode, leaving a space between the characters of your personal details.

Hi @Lordal,each customer can be named on a maximum of 2 accounts. If you are doing a joint account with your wife the maximum amount of accounts you can open is 2 between you. Both you can have 2 single accounts each, or both you can have 1 single account each and 1 joint account between you. Hope this help clarify :)
