Free £5 Amazon gift certificate + £9.59 TopCashback when you sync one bank account to Money Dashboard

I signed up to this ages ago but never used it as the site looks a bit cluncky. Yesterday I got an email saying they have 2,000 £5 Amazon gift certificates to give away to the first people that link a bank account.

The service in itself now looks pretty good, a very way of seeing an overview of all of your accoutns & credit cards etc, as well as analysis of your spend (e.g. what areas, such as "going out" and trends over time.

I received the email and didn't like what is was asking for.
It looked like a 'scam'.

Sounds good.

Found the cashback but cant see the £5 amazon gift card?

I can imagine a lot of people thinking that, but it is legit and secure

I can confirm Money Dashboard isn't a scam, it's a quality free way of keeping track of your finances. I joined up a while back after a similar cashback offer.

Dodgy, why would you compromise you bank details with a 3rd party?

I believe this requires you to input your banking credentials through the system - which is against most (if not all) bank's T&C's ???

Its perfectly legal and has better security than your online banking. My only issue is if somebody knows the password they can monitor all your accounts without you having a clue.

It's giving one website the usernames and passwords to all your online banking.

Anyone who signs up needs their head examined.

Extremely dangerous and against the T&C of all legitimate online banking services.

The link from TCB is ok and worth signing up and then de-registering your card (I only added one credit card).
I'd fully check out the email link though before committing. What they were after didn't make any sense.

Any sign of a link to the £5 Amazon voucher before I blindly link an account?

no other person/company should ever ask for passwords, login detsils etc. not even your own bank knows your password....

Same found cash back but no gift card

Money Dashboard does not have access to your bank details they are highly encrypted and secure. yodlee.com/ run there security and the same system is used by ALL the major banks in america and some of ours. Your data is 100% secure, encrypted and only available for you to access. Unless of course somebody has your password

I assume this is some kind of data collection exercise, they harvest your spending habits and then sell them on along with who you are.

That may be the case, but it is still likely to be a breach of your banks T&C's.

For the sake of a £5 amazon voucher you are compromising all your sensitive information! What's the point of risking it, even if they are a genuine company (with all the cyber hacking going on, if companies like Sony and Microsoft can't insulate their systems from attacks what makes you think this firm stands a chance?)

If it's simply a password, then it's not better security than barclays reader.

Wow, I thought this was a good deal! Cold as ice apparently!

One point to make, even if somebody does get your password etc for this, you cant manage your money with it,just view. I know that's still not ideal,bit its not like somebody could empty your accounts

Also,there was no link for the amazon gift certificate, just an email saying to do ot

Does anyone know how to get the gift card? I already use money dashboard and fully investigated it.

They are not covered by UK banking regulations and simply implying good security does not make it so....... ask Sony.For the sake of a proposed £5 voucher and what appears to be online access services your bank already provides seems a high risk strategy.

£5 to compromise all my cash???? bargain

they want your User ID Password and memorable information you would have to be mad to use this site

There are a lot of gullible fools about it seems. Sorry, that's unfair to fools - they are completely raving mad idiots.
