Halifax Online Banking
Member Name: BenC93
Advantages: Keep track of your bank account
Disadvantages: Have to remember long username
I started using online banking as soon as I signed up to my Halifax Visa debit card and since then I haven't stopped using it. It is so useful and makes life so much easier as you can check your bank balance whilst at home and even pay bills over the internet.
Joining isn't too hard; all you have to do is fill in some details and they send you a letter in the post with a activation code on it which then, when entered on your account, gets you officially up and running.
The only thing is, is that everytime you log into the website you have to remember your username which you don't have much control over. Its usually your first followed by the first letter of your second name and then a long number code. This can get quite frustrating as you normally have to keep getting Halifax to send you an email with your username in it. Also, for some reason it isn't saved in your cookies either so you have to remember it somehow.
Overall, I think Halifax Online Banking is a great way to keep up to date with what is happening in your bank account.
