Canada, How to get money?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I find myself in a bit of a pickle.

    I know you can use a Debit card to withdraw cash from a machine.

    Or you can cash a cheque with the clerk, or at the BFPO.

    But if you dont have a cheque book or a debit card, what do you do?
     
  2. You slap yourself around the head for being an Admin Vortex. Then you find a doorway and an old coffee cup and rely on the kindness of strangers.


    If that fails, prostrate yourself in front of your RAO and ask him if you can have an EPIC.
     
  3. I have already slapped myself. I did contact my bank to let them know I would need a Debit card and cheque book for my deployment to Canada, they told me to phone back mid-December, I did this and then they told me No.

    What are the options, can you get payed in cash in special circumstances?
     
  4. I'm surprised, that your bank said no to issuing a debit card! Even the 'basic' bank accounts come with one. A debit card will only allow you to withdraw funds that are actually in the account, so very difficult to go overdrawn.
     
  5. Sorted.

    They wont let me get a debit card or cheque book.

    But they let me open up an international account that comes with both.

  7. Double check PMs!

    Do you think he got MCCP'd correctly?
     
  8. Doesn't sound like it. All my guys are squared away...
     
  9. No doubt fingeringhoe will be along in a minute to tell us how it's all done properly anyway. Not that we'd know.
     
  10. You could have been given an epic of up to 28 days pay repayable over 9 months
     
  11. I knew you'd back me up...
     
  12. Words fail me
