Another 2 grand done today. Keeping cash under my bed doesn't seem to be working. Barclays saving account got cleared (next door to bookies)

I'm needing an account that i can put money in but not touch it without giving them notice or something along the lines. I've looked about so just wondering what u fellow cgs are using as I'm looking to put a stop to this an actually start saving an spending on holidays instead of blowing all in a day. Im 22 now an need to start saving properly advice

Hand over your finances to a family member. By doing this the only way you can get your hands on money is by asking them. Order new bank cards and get them to scratch off the 3 digit security code so you can't use the card online either

Hi mate, there is a type of bank account called "notice account" that allows you to put in money and needing to give a notice period in order to withdraw funds. Usually around 30-180 days. The incentive is the high interest although for the problem gambler it's to not have easy access to money. Lloyds tsb is one bank that does it.
