HOW IT WORKS
You can talk directly to your experienced account manager. They'll help take the stress out of managing those monthly bills. Simply tell your advisor what needs to be paid and they'll do the rest. They'll set up all the necessary direct debits and regular payments from your account and help you manage your bills to ensure you'll never incur any more costly overdraft or unpaid payment fees.
Managing Your Spending
After all of your bills are taken care of, the remaining balance from your wages can be moved to your Acorn Account Prepaid Debit MasterCard® Card. This process can be automated once the account is set up, using your online account management centre to create "rules". These rules tell the system what percentage of your wages should be placed in your bills account or on your Acorn Account Card as spends. You will be able to manage these rules yourself to match your requirements. We will help you with this when you call to activate the account.
Pay in at a bank or Post Office branch
We've teamed up with a leading high street bank to allow you to pay in cash and cheques at any of their branches. All you have to do is take your cash and cheques to your nearest Barclays branch and pay in using your pre-printed GIRO.
You can also pay in cash at any branch of the Post Office using your own personal barcode. Simply download and print your barcode, take your cash and your barcode to any Post Office branch and pay your money in over the counter. Unfortunately, you are unable to pay in cheques using the facility at the Post Office. Cash paid into your account via Post Office branches will be credited to your billing account within 2 working days; please see terms & conditions for charges associated with this service.
