Hi @Warren38, I'm sorry to hear about the delay to your cheque. We do adhere to the 2-4-6 rule, I'm unsure why my colleague would advise differently and we'd like to look further into this for you. Please send a private message to @CET, including your name, DOB and postcode. When you send your DOB and postcode, please add additional spaces between the characters, like A B 1 2 C D etc.
I've had the same problem multiple times. I cheque was only deposited late yesterday after posting it last Saturday.
Over Christmas, two cheques I paid in on 13th Dec didn't show up on my account until 28th Dec.
Yet a few times it's been deposited and cleared within 3 or 4 days. So it's very hit and miss. None of my local Tesco's do banking at CS.
