£75 to change current account to HSBC

HSBC are now offering £75 for new customers to change your current account to them.

If you have an HSBC current account, you also qualify for a Regular Saver paying upto 10% for a year - though that depends on the type of current account you open.

------------
Moving your account to HSBC is simple. Our guarantees mean you can sit back and enjoy an easy switch to HSBC.

If you apply for a new Bank Account, HSBC Advance Bank Account or HSBC Premier Bank Account between 27 December 2010 and 6 February 2011, you can now get £75 cashback when you switch your banking to HSBC, providing you don't already have another current account with us.

HSBC Premier is free subject to financial eligibility criteria.

HSBC Advance Bank Account currently costs £6 per month for the first 3 months, then reverting to the standard price, currently £12.95 per month. HSBC Advance has an initial 12 month contract then renewable monthly.

HSBC Bank Account requires a minimum of £500 per month to be paid into the account. This does not apply if you're under the age of 24.

Excellent deal. Go for the bank account option as opposed to the other eligble options (premier, advance & pay monthly) which they charge for
#2
The Go To Deal link says £50, not £75 (and has expired two days ago), and the other link says file not found.

It's £500 for 'Bank Account' & 'Bank Account Pay Monthly' http://www.hsbc.co.uk/1/2/personal/current-accounts/comparison-table

First Direct offer is better:

* switch your bank account now and we make a simple promise to give you £100
* to qualify you need to transfer your salary/income of at least £1,500 per month within three months
* sorry, but we can only offer this to people who haven't previously experienced the delights of banking with first direct.

Satisfaction guaranteed


* if, within 12 months, you're not happy with us we'll give you £100 and help you move your account
* you must have paid in at least £1,500 a month for six months and not have tried us before
* you'll also need to have used our Easyswitch service, for the transfer of standing orders and direct debits from your old bank
* all other accounts held with first direct must be closed when you move accounts.
#7
Good deal. Damm I can not get this as I already have a first direct account and they are the same group.
#8
I will never wanna use their service.

I had a current account and a saving account with hsbc about 4years ago, when I transfered 2500 pounds from my saving account into current account to pay for tuition fees, the cashier done it over till. 10days later got a letter saying my account will be closing within 1 month. After few phone calls they still decided to close my accounts.

I just can't see £75 anywhere, can you point it out for me please.
#10
I had First Direct and had falling out with them a while back and moved to Alliance & Leicester who were great. Now they are rebranded as Santander and i bloody hate them. No people to talk to, odd things going on with online account (like multiple DDs to same payee, odd charges on account etc).

My point is, First Direct were not as bad as i first thought and i kind of wish i could go back. :( £100 for switching is a good deal.
#11
HSBC is by far and away the best bank in the uk. look at the share price that remained strong throughout, when other shares hit pennies..

in terms of internet banking and faster payments i can quite happily transfer £2000 in a day and it will credit my A&L (santander) bank before I've logged on..

as opposed santander who have now told me i can only transfer upto £300 via faster payment per day otherwise its 3 day BACS, (even if i use my joint account i cannot transfer £300 faster payments to the same hsbc account. As it defaults to BACS)
Also when i pay my barclaycard using hsbc it credits within 2 hours usually 8), A&L can take upto 5 days, :{
only bank with A&L due to the ridiculously large overdraft, at £5 a mnth is used

Great bank to do your day-to-day banking with.... payments are repid, and their online banking is a breeze (despite repeated attempts by them to get me to install bloody rapport)

However, dont EVER expect decent deals from them - Loans are constantly well below par rates (although they can have the money in your account within 15min - scary), Mortgages are never anywhere near the best buy tables and they are closing branch / counter postions at a rate of knots.

I use a combination of HSBC (Long term Personal account, everything works but no particualt benefits) and First Direct (actaully use the the directory service, handy for bonus insurance).
#23
I've been wanting to move from Abbey/Santander ever since every single year of uni they told me i'd graduated and i had to go in, every year, and go through a nightmare procedure to prove i was still at uni.

That coupled with them screwing it up when i did finally graduate so that i didn't get the usual overdraft repayment facility, and they just shut it off right away, and all the recent privacy screw ups..

This finally pushed me into leaving them :) I'm a little fearful this kind of thing will screw up in some way, but we'll see :)

See Premier Summary Brochure, the criteria is very high - its on page 4 investments of 50K with HSBC, mortgage of at least 300K with HSBC in the UK, thats far too rich for me, all go for the santandar instead and have the £1000.

HSBC Premier is their top account - you probably want to look at the HSBC Bank Account or the Advance account which are both more 'regular/normal' accounts

I don't think Santander offer their £100 offer anymore.

Has to take my vote as one of the most considered and helpful posts ever - not!

Explain if there's something of use to the rest of us - or keep your bitterness to yourself.

One hell of a rip off bank, I have a UK and Australian account with these muppets and they charge me to transfer money between them.....its the same bleeding bank bank!!!!!!

Thanks for the reminder to close both accounts.

I agree. Santander takes at least 3 days for transfers, while other banks do it immediately.
Personally I never tried HSBC because I found Barclays very efficient at solving problems very quickly over the phone.
Also they don't have call centres abroad (or maybe I've always been lucky)
I might give hsbc a go this time.
Thanks op
#31
I don't think these 'small' incentives are good, think about your daily banking needs and whether you are happy with your current bank. A few others such as Halifax have offered £100 previously but IMHO it's not worth the risk of changing.

I've had a few HSBC (and other companies) accounts and I really dislike their policies, service and daily banking. FWIW I bank with Barclays, great online & mobile services and great in-branch banking too. Just my 2cents.

I'm not sure about that, the 7.5% on loans at the moment is pretty standard and they're doing a five year fixed mortgage at 3.99%, putting it well above most others. The savings rates are usually absolutely atrocious though.

If you have an HSBC current account, you also qualify for a Regular Saver paying upto 10% for a year - though that depends on the type of current account you open.

Yes, and the kind of account you have to open to get the 10% is the paid for "HSBC advance". This will cost £12.95 per month for a year (£155.40), and even if you invested the most in the regular saver at the 10% rate vs the 5% rate for standard accounts, the extra interest would earn you £81.25 gross over the year (meaning you'd be £70 worse off than if you'd taken the 5% rate)

the mortgage rates depending on the applicant are amongst the best out there, as a FTB they where the only bank to offer a LTV of 90%.. in the last few years..

hsbc mortgages have interest calculated daily and i have an unlimited overpayments so i'm more than happy with my hsbc mortgage, whereas A&L in the past have calculated interest on an annual basis so any overpayments were not reducing the interest payable. I believe they have changed to daily now.. though

Having exposed Britain’s biggest tax avoidance scheme, run by Vodafone, the Eye can reveal number two: an equally clever offshore wheeze operated by the country’s largest bank, HSBC. It, too, is to benefit from the multi-billion-pound let-off given by HM Revenue & Customs’ Dave Hartnett to the mobile phone company.

I agree its a great bank for day to day banking with what is probably the best online banking system in the UK.

However, I disagree with your statement that "Mortgages are never anywhere near the best buy tables" - I understand that for the last year+, HSBC and First Direct (also owned by HSBC) have been at or near the top of most of the best buy tables for mortgages - as they have continued to offer competitive rates as they are one of the few banks which actually have more money on deposit than they lend out.. and thus don't need to borrow money on the markets (unlike most banks).

However, this does mean that several of their savings rates are not the most competitive (as they don't need the extra money!)

Same experience with A&L since they've changed to Santander. Been with A&L for 10 years. Think the multiple DDs are to do with the fiasco when they adopted a new sort code, resulting in DD failures - I've got the same. Gonna look a changing (possibly to First Direct) in the new Year. The free European Travel Insurance is about the only positive at the moment, but can see that getting scrapped before long.

What a nightmare. Got excepted for bank account no problem. Ain't gonna bother thou. Took my id to Plymstock Plymouth branch. They made me come back over an hour later and kept me waiting over 30 minutes more. The woman behind the counter was a snotty bitch...I left in disgust. If this is how they treat 'brand new customers' think I would rather stay put....

What a BUNCH of rude Bankers!
