They (Clydesdale) are the 2nd worst bank I've ever dealt with (after Santander) and no amount of money would encourage me to use them.

You don't have to use the bank account. Just switch from an account you are not using and pay in some money to get the incentive bonus. Then leave the account open with £1 in it and find another account with a switch bonus.

can you open this account , then switch your old account to the new one ?

Unfortunately they have that covered.

Not sure they have that covered at all - if you pay in £1000 (that's not part of the balance transfer from the old account you are switching from) then you qualify for the £150 , no ?

Any money from a bank for free is a good deal although I would never deal with Clydesdale Bank again! Hear added though

Open the account and go through the switch process (and thus close down a bank account you no longer want/need) then pay in £1000 from another account, wait for the £150 switch incentive then withdraw your money and repeat the process for the next bank offering a switch incentive. There is nothing to say that you have to have your wages/income paid into this account nor that you need to keep using it apart from the initial £1000 pay in.
