seems pretty good to me, heated.

I have a normal HSBC current account already. Can I still be eligible for this please? eg changing from normal account to this advance account or if I keep my current account and switch my secondary Halifax to the advance account? Thanks

I changed from a standard to advance account over a year ago and I was not entitled to the CASS bonus but did take out a Loyalty ISA around 2 months ago.

​you can switch your Halifax but the new account will need 1750 per month for the next 2 months

does anyone know this 1750 should come from work

I would love to open an account with HSBC but I am a Mexican drug lord having killed 1000's, flooded europe and the USA with Cocaine and only $50 billion to invest. I am not morally bankrupt enough!

​work or payments like direct debits ie rent or mortgage bills etc

There's already a thread running for this offer but it seems HSBC have now added the extra£50 for taking out a credit card, which doesn't seem to have been included on the original offer. As you can see from the comments HSBC are seemingly quite strict on who they let open an Advance account.

You need evidence you can personally afford to do that each month or otherwise HSBC will decline your application.

Heat added and thanks for posting this offer X)

cant find anything which mentions £50/25 for applying for the credit card?

Do they pay anything for switching from HSBC? Such a useless bank from my experience

HSBC seem to be quite strict on applications for this account. I've successfully applied for large numbers of cashback current accounts over the years, as has the wife, with no problems whatever.

This time, she 'didn't meet the criteria' and I had to visit a branch of HSBC with documentation to confirm income - first time that's ever happened!

As said it is ok to pay in from other accounts as long as they are not with HSBC.

Also if you have annual salary which gives you more than £1750 per month then it is fine (not necessary to pay into this account).
However if your monthly salary does not come to £1750, then you can open a basic account and pay £1750 for two months and then call them to upgrade to advance account saying that you are expecting to increase hours at work and that will get you over the £1750 per month limit. I know this works because my wife upgraded her basic current account to advance inspite of having a lower monthly income

So you are basically telling people to lie to get the cashback?

Pretty sure they are doing background credit checks given the amount of rejections mentioned on the previous thread?

cant find anything which mentions £50/25 for applying for the credit card?



Here's the link from the HSBC website

hsbc.co.uk/1/2…nce

Which seems identical to the last one listed on here, I can't find any mention of the credit card cashback either?

No I am telling people that their salary will increase in future anyway and if it doesn't then they can increase their hours and become eligible for this account in the near future.
