I'm sorry but I'm completely lost here.
If it is a joint bank account, what is the problem with them discussing it with your wife if she is, presumably, on the account. Do you mean can they discuss it with her, being a joint account holder, without your consent?
I need the full details on what you exactly want to know please.
From the brief facts you have given, I can't see that the bank of do anything wrong but I might be missing something.

not the bank but I need to know if it was ok for the mint card to do this without my consent.


many thanks.


Expert:  James Mather replied 4 years ago.
The Mint credit card company is owned by the Royal Bank of Scotland you bank with that it is highly likely that the terms and conditions of the credit card allow them to look at the bank account..
By all means ask them on what authority they have done that but expect them to come up with it in the terms and conditions that you signed when you asked for the credit card.
If they do not come up with that, then raise an issue with the Financial Ombudsman

The Does that answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
