Word is that the new notes are our soon so all the old dears with wads of £20 under the bed are off down Chester Road buying owt for a quid just to get clean change.......
I did the same. About 4K when a grandparent died. Old old tenners. Big ones. No questions asked either she just bagged it.Bank wont swap,if your taking £1000's in you have to pay it into your account,i tried it with old tenners
Tbf the 6 months was just a guesstimate of sorts. The point was that they don't just withdraw them from immediate effect, they do give you enough time to change/spend them.AFAIK it's not 6 months from when the new ones come out. They will announce a date at some point with 6 month deadline.
I thought when you said swap you didn't mean deposit,no bank will just swap,crossed-wires.That's what I meant. Deposit old notes in to your account and then withdraw the new ones.
You can.And even after that you can take them to a bank I think, or to the BoE itself any time thereafter.
