    Hi Im thinking of switching my current account from Ptsb due to the new changes. KBC has the best offering for me as my wages would cover me for the 2,500 monthly electronic lodgement.
    The only issue I have is from time to time I have cash of 600 or 700 that I need to lodge.
    Is there a work around that I could operate for this.

    Purchase a postal order from An Post and lodge the postal order into your KBC Extra Current Account.

    Alternatively, ask the person who is paying you in cash to pay you electronically.

    you could also open an account at your local credit union and lodge it there, then do an online transfer to your current account....

    hi. this is of interest to me as planning on moving to kbc.
    my question is, what happens if you want to lodge a larger amount than €650 which is postal order max.
    if i sold a car for say €5000 and it was bought with cash then how do i deposit it. i am sure you need an account with another bank to be able to purchase a bank draft.
    i dont want more than 1 account as defeats purpose of trying to cut bank charges down.
    regards

    You options seem to be a free EBS account or a credit union account or multiple postal orders.

    I have a credit union account, so I intend to lodge cash to there and transfer across online.

    I'm sure most people have brother or sister who is PAYE worker and would be happy to lodge cash in their own bank account and transfer it into your kbc account then
