    As the title states, DS's CTF voucher expires in only 3 days and I have no clue how to pick from the long list of providers with whom to invest his cheque. :dohh:

    Anyone who has done this recently? How do you decide??

    If you don't choose one they'll do it automatically for you and send you the details of who they have chosen x

    OOoohhh, when do they expire? I havent done mine yet.

    I chose to put mine with someone i already have an account with, just because it requires less paper work. Decision made, yet i still havent got round to doing it :dohh:

    We bank with Lloyds, but they will only distribute it...to Children's Mutual, I think.

    I did read that I might be able to set it all up over the phone. Hmm. That might be convenient.

    I just went with the first ones that sent their stuff through the post. :shrug:
    I don't plan on adding to it, and the way I see it 50 quid in 18 years is going to be worth nothing, anyway...

    We'll be opening a savings account for her, but didn't want one that she can only access when she turns 18.
