worst bank ever
Its upto £7 by way of 2 direct debits of £3.50 each NOT £7 a month & £3.50 for 2 direct debits as in the title. Someone needs to remove the & sign.

try to get a government loan from them now


Fair enough
Their internet banking site is horrendus too. Have tried most of them on this PC (serial switcher) and never had issues with the rest.

There was a period in the past where you could get £14 a month from blue rewards if you had 4 DD. Set up 4 £1. charity ones. Now it's down to £7 a month currently losing a quid a month, but feel too guilty to cancel the DDs Voted Hot.

Agreed. This reads as £14 a month.

2 direct debits of £1 a month

£7 - £4 - £1 - £1 = £1

You’re only getting £3 as you’re paying £4- should amend the heading to show this

And you get £7 making a £3 profit?
It’s Barclays.
You could see this as being altruistic and giving charities £1. a month for no cost to yourselves

All for the small small cost of switching to and being part of one of the least ethical banks

How are you paying the 2 direct debits? Cash?

If so its not £3 profit

I guess if you had 2 direct debit you were using anyway, and didn't make specially for this deal, then it would be £3 profit.

On the flip side, their mobile app is one of the best.

Also, it didn't used to be £14, is always been £7, but for a while they offered new accounts a 2x bonus for a limited time.
You pay £4 a month for Blue Rewards. For every Direct Debit coming out of your account they pay you £3.50 up to a maximum of 2 giving you £7 a month. Minus the initial £4 monthly fee and they're giving you £3 a month for free (assuming you already have direct debits coming out of your account)

The £4 fee comes out of your current account and the £7 goes into a separate account to either withdraw it back into your current account of leave it where it is as a sort of savings giving you a max of £84 a year in that account (£36 in real money minus the fee)

Hope that helps lol

True, it was new accounts. for a year. But unless you get spiritual about what it means to be, this technically used to be £14

Moderated made those changes
You can also get up to £8 per month if you have your home insurance through them
Plus £5 a month if you have a mortgage
I’ve used it and accumulated quite a bit over the years. They used to pay extra if you had a morgage with them but it’s still £3 a month for not doing a right lot for those that qualify.

You were inferring they'd cut the benefits like many banks are currently doing when they just haven't. It's being going for many, many years at the £7 for £3 rate, but more recently they introduced a limited time offer for new accounts only so have cut nothing.
I was inferring nothing of the sort. Maybe the word 'down' was what gave you that impression? I will be sure to think of my adverbs more carefully from now on.
Up and till last month I paid them £3 a month and they kindly gave me £12 back. Sadly I have just paid my interest only mortgage off with them and now I will loose money, as my interest was less than the rewards received for having the mortgage lol!
