Banks are designed to steal your money. This is just bait.

Not really they are a business like any other. If you don't keep your account in order and misuse it then don't moan about charges. Most of the banks don't "steal" your money, as you sign for the account and terms and conditions are given and explained to you.

You have a wonderfully optimistic view

P.S. this is still bait

cold u have to pay for the halifax account
You dont need to pay anything for Reward Account.
I think you are confusing it with Ultimate Reward Account.

Have nationwide improved their online banking? It was absolutely woeful about 6 months ago, couldn't even pay your CC off online :/

Not true, I've been doing this for ages. Easy to transfer money between accounts/mortgages etc.

Absolutely true, I didn't have a current account with them.

Their help article pretty much confirms exactly what im saying :

if you are looking for a current account the nationwide one is pretty good...no catches no fees and no funding requirements ;-)

I,m with the halifax. Ultimate reward you pay £15 a month if you deposit over £750, you get £5 reduction if you stay in credit.
For the fee, you have a £500 free OD, worldwide family holiday insurance, breakdown cover whatever vehicle you travel in,mobile phone insurance, emergency home cover, card protection, and more recently shopping rewards with your debit card.
Definitely worth looking at.

you re paying way too much - better package accounts out there for a tenner!!!

I'm not thinking of anyone else. As I said above, I didn't have a current account with them so you had to pay off, for example, over the phone.

Just a query, for those who may know...I have a HSBC account, with an overdraft that I do use. If I were to open a Halifax account, is there anything to stop me having my wages paid into the Halifax account each month, then most of it standing order into the HSBC account a few days later?? That way the Halifax would stay in credit & receive the £5 per month, while I could still use the HSBC overdraft as necessary.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, just wondered if anyone could tell me definitely whether or not it is possible, rather than trying it and ending up messing up both accounts!!

Would obviously need to change a couple of direct debits over to Halifax to meet the criteria...that wouldn't be a problem...

I do this with the same two banks. Money for nothing. If you want a referral drop me a PM (as opposed to a BM :-) )

Barclay's gives you Kaspersky antivirus every year for up to 3 computers (or 1 Mac) but not much else.

For both First Direct and Halifax Reward account, you have to deposit monthly of £1000 for the former and £750 for the latter to avoid charges.

If you don't pay £750 into the halifax account you don't get charged. You just don't get the £5 reward.

And have two active direct debit transactions per month.

Yup, I sell the account.

Yes and no. You wouldn't get the £100 switching incentive for moving from HSBC to halifax as to get this you have to let Halifax use the switching service which would move all your Direct debits/standing orders/credits (wages etc) and close your old account. But you could definitely just open a new reward current account, call your wage department yourself and get your pay moved across. You'd also have to organise for at least 2 of your DDs to be paid from the halifax account too. It's up to you whether you think it's worth it for £60/year :)

Now now, we don't "sell" accounts anymore according to the fsc (or whatever they are calling themselves these day lol) we are providing a service ;)

I have six Halifax Reward accounts. Three in my name and three in my wife's name with a deposit of £375 that moves from one account to the next every alternate day and completes the same loop twice within the month. This fulfils the £750 funding requirement and earns £360 gross interest a year without me having to lift a finger. :)
