Quidco has increased their cashback from £45 to £50 which makes it a sweet deal :D

Alliance & Leicester has re-launched their £100 cashback incentive for customers who switch their current account to an Alliance and Leicester Premier Current Account. That's £100 cashback on top of the Quidco cashback for switching to a Premier Current Account.

-----How to qualify for this great offer----

£100 cashback when you open and switch to a Premier Current Account using our Switching Service. (See note 1 below).

To qualify for this offer you must switch all your Direct Debits using our Switching Service and meet the monthly funding requirements below.
The £100 will be paid into your new current account with 3 months of opening, providing you meet the qualifying criteria.
This offer isnt available if you already hold or have held one of our current accounts or a Santander UK, cahoot or Cater Allen current account in the last 3 months.
This offer is limited and depends on availability.
Youll need to pay at least £500 every month into your bank account (or fees may apply).
You must be over 21.



P.S.
I done it last year. £150 easy money and their service is amazing! I even got a free travel insurance!!!!

A similar deal has been posted before but the cashback is £45 and NOT £50 SO DON'T VOTE COLD LOL
#2
I did this last year... easy money... quidco tracked and paid very quickly and I received the £100 after a couple months from A/L... not sure if it is still the case, but I got a 12 month interest free overdraft too.

You get more from TCB so this is cold from me!

How do you get more from TCB? It is showing as £45?
#5
Yep, I did this earlier on in the year - tracked and paid quickly and received the £100 from A&L within a month of opening the account. I'm not too keen on the bank though as their online banking isn't very good in my opinion. I think I'll be transferring back to HSBC at some point.
#6
I did this at the end of January and switchover was complete by end of March. All went smoothly and received £100 a few days after my first salary went in and direct debits came out. Quidco didn't initially track but after a claim it updated to received last week and was paid out to me yesterday.

Easy money.
#7
Almost did this but decided against it after hearing of people's experiences with the bank, and their online banking. Considering there are not too many branches around, and none local to me it looked like I could have had a hard time getting any problems sorted out.
#8
I too took this offer up via Quidco earlier this year, both the £50 from Quidco and the £100 from A&L were paid very quickly. PS if you do take up this offer check saynoto0870.com for the head office number if you need to speak to customer services as otherwise it's an 08 number which doesn't come out of your free minutes if on a contract.

TCB will topup your purchases, up to 10% more, all depending on how much you have made the previous month, takes some to get to the 10% limit but can be worthwhile if you are thinking of making a large purchase, can also be a trap so you need to be wary!
Already have an account with A+L so is no use to me but a great deal.

Just a heads up, in a couple of months time A&L will be moving to Santander's online banking system, which is a LOT better.

Not to mention by September Santander will have the most branches in the UK by a long way.
#12
But will they ever get instant transfers like HSBC. A&L transfers take like 3 working days. Also don't u have to pay in several hundred pounds each month for this deal?

You have to pay £500 each month but you can do this and the very next day withdraw that money. Yes, you're right with the instant transfers - that's what I do like about HSBC, First Direct, Barclays etc.
#15
A&L are pretty shoddy though. customer service is rubbish, website is awful can take 3/4 days to show a transaction on there. and my local branch doesn't let you pay bills in there!

I never actually changed from LloydsTSB... I just transfer the bill money into that account each month... and my wages still go into my original account.

£45 + 10% = £49.50. Still less than £50.

TCB will match any other rate so you could potentially get more, but my point was the original post I was replying to was plain stupid saying they were voting cold etc. The deal is the £100, any cashback is a bonus IMO.

I hated the online banking at first as transactions take around 3 days to update. However the running balance is always bang up to date which wasn't the case with my old bank and led me to overdraw on several occasions.
#20
I did this last year too. Very quick easy money. Happy enough with the online banking too as it does what I need it to.
Will stay with them for now as the interest free overdraft for 12 months has come in really handy!!

pretty amazing deal, am looking to move banks too
#22
H+R added. I've been considering switching accounts, so this is the kick up the arse I needed! Thanks.

Yeah, sorry I meant to say that I'd be closing the A&L account and continue with HSBC as I didn't close my original account either.
#24
alliance and leicester do the quick transfers as well but only if the amount is £250 or less. I know this as transfer to HSBC every month
banned#25
Signed up, thanks

i would strongly recommend not get lured by their deals. they charge u for things that happen which are not your fault (trust me, i am very regular with my payments etc but they still managed to find faults and quoted small print) and recover their 100£ in no time...

surely if you play by the rules and don't touch their money, you will be fine...
#29
A good deal as you get the free travel insurance, however I would echo what many people are saying. The service is terrible in my opinion and when it comes to closing this account, all I can say is GOOD LUCK! :-D

(I voted hot for the free £150 and travel insurance)
#30
alliance and leicesters online banking systems is fine the problem is the way their clearing system works ie faster payments aren't that faster, adding to the fact if you make a payment after 5pm on a friday a payment will not show until tuesday morning the amount of times I've rung up to kick off about payments not leaving my account on time..

. fingers crossed when santander take up its a pure dump of customers from one system to the other and they don't attempt to link the systems framework them..

ps. keep a reliable bank like hsbc for payments, but just transfer over £500 a month into A&L
for the following reasons
1, cashback offers
2, onlinesaver5 offers very good interest and even the standard account offers 1-2% ish
thats a million times greater than hsbc interest rate
3, interest free overdraft offered
4, i have £2,200 overdraft which only costs me 50 pence per day when i'm using it.
(maximum 10 days payable per month) to borrow £2,200 for a fee of £5 a month is damn cheap !!) and a £1,500 overdraft on my joint account same fees apply

Cold due to poor customer service good luck if you want to cancel!. lol!.
#33
I did this a few months back and it all went through ok. HOT!
#34
can you get the £100 if you transfer the money in yourself but don't transfer your dd's over?

I put £100 a week into a different account to save anyway, so may use this for a few months and just put a bit extra away.
#35
Did this earlier in the year, switching DD's from my First Direct account, but kept this open. Got all the cashback and bonus fairly quickly. Not impressed with A&L phone customer service, not a patch on FD's, the online banking is useable. Most irritating thing is their use of 9 digit account numbers for internal transfers, complicating matters when you want to receive/send money from/to other accounts.

Just do it for the cashback and bonus, comply with the £500 monthly pay-in and transfer it back out immediately, then cancel if you don't like'em, after you've got the cashback! :thumbsup:
#36
Cold,

Still waiting for the £50 referral since December last year. Phone customer service is the worst in the business.
#37
A&L is the only organisation I've ever phoned which quibbled me dialling their geographic "for use abroad" number rather than their expensive-from-a-mobile 0845 numbers. Schoolmarmish woman said she'd take the call "just this once" but put a note on my account in case I did it again! Pathetic.
#38
If my existing account don't have a standing order or dd but would like to apply for this A&L account, would I still qualify for the £100 incentive?
#39
I am currently nearing the end of a switch to this bank after getting infuriated with my current one a couple of months ago. There was a £100 cashback deal but in my rage at the time I forgot to go through QC.

All I can say so far as is that I am definitely less than impressed with their service. Like most building societies their policies and facilities seem archaic by modern UK standards and they have already made a good few balls up in the short time I have been a customer of theirs. Fortunately I chose not to get my wages paid directly into there and I will be maintaining an account with my current bank who are, quite frankly, *******s but reasonably reliable all the same. Given the choice looking back, I probably wouldn't have bothered with this lot to be honest.

thank you


But they'll match Quidco (and you could get 10% extra too).
