A very small selection of the Barclays deposit by post envelopes
Barclays have really surpassed themselves this time! I’ve been trying to get a few envelopes to pay in cheques at the Post Offices or by post for the last 5 years. I’ll not bore you with the details about how I have been told contradicting stories about this over the years. But suffice it to say that at last I got the envelopes I need. They arrived by currior today. A large and heavy box containing no less than 500 envelopes!! I was expecting a couple of dozen. A quick bit of maths: even if I use one envelope a week. It will take 10 years to get through them. What’s the chances that the process will be different long before then and require a new set of envelopes?
Oh yes, and get this, there is an dispatch note with the box (which barclays tell me is just for information and not something that I have to pay). The dispatch note says the cost of the 500 envelopes and sending them out to me? £56.88!
