'Deal Time' offer

In November 2009 we launched our first 'Deal Time' offer. Following its success we'd like to repeat this fantastic deal. This means on Wednesday 17th March 2010, between 12pm and 3pm, we're offering all existing customers the opportunity to purchase UK equities online completely commission-free. Saving you £11.95 for every purchase you make (although stamp duty will still apply as usual).

Our 'Deal Time' offer is a way of rewarding our customers for choosing Halifax Share Dealing, whilst at the same time giving them a little extra help to build up their portfolio. We will be running regular 'Deal Time' promotions for you over the coming months so watch this space!

Don't miss out on commission-free online purchases of UK equities from 12pm until 3pm on 17th March.

Just a few things to help you prepare:

If you have forgotten your account log in details, simply call us on 08457 22 55 25 to reset your details.
You can fund your account using your default payment method. If this is Direct Debit please bear in mind that it may take up to five days for the funds to be cleared in your account for you to trade. If your default method is debit card then you can fund your account instantly.
If you make a trade using a TradePlan the usual £2 fee will still apply, however you wont pay any commission on your purchase providing it executes between 12pm and 3pm on 17th March 2010.
Enjoy your 'Deal Time' trading offer!

So they still charge to sell?

Does this apply to all customers or just new accounts?

Looks like a good offer to me, thanks for posting. Their selling charges are pretty fair as well.

Isn't the £5 per month deal a complete fanfare over nothing? According to their T&Cs, you have to pay in £1000 per month at a minimum to get the fiver. That works out at 0.05% interest !! Even if you were to pay in twice that amount the fiver stays the same...As for the £50 for switching accounts, i suppose if you don't mind all the faffing about. Consider why they are eager to get us all signed up? A default here (£30 charge?) a letter there (£25 charge) - it soon adds up.

Agree about the charges but the interest rate is actually very good. In theory you could have the same £1000 being paid into the Halifax account, then being paid out back into another account ....so just use one to feed the other. This means on £1000 over 12 months you get £60 in interest i.e. a rate of 6% tax free.

voted hot

Hot.. Need to top up on a few shares.. Next Wednesday will be fun.. Thanks.

Good offer, used in Nov. Lots of people are using Halifax now for such deals.

Cold voters need to get a new piggie bank for their 2p's

Shame this is for existing customers only.

Hot though, just wish I was!!

Takes Halifax a lot more than a week to process a new account. Especially with all the ID verification etc etc.

SO ITS just for halifax customers.i do my trading with x-o 5.95 a trade

wats the catch with x-o? im currently with share.com where im charged flat rate of £7.50 and i pay £20 quarterly for trader option. Some months i hardly do any trades and others like last month i do about 40 trades so it works out ok for me. Much better than barcs who used to put the price back up to £12.50 when i didnt trade!!

Now live!

I have been buying up a few things today, but am struggling. The site when making the purchase with the 15 sec countdown, is not loading when purchasing???? Just me?

Opps. make sure you don't refresh, but check your statement.. lols..

Any tips for long term investments today?

u cant go wrong with VOG. They have industrial size amount of gas found... more results coming out end of the month

u can buy afren... they will be listed as ftse 250 on 22nd march. Buy them while they are under £1 now. Look at it after a few months.. should be big gains but vog will be more than 100% gain. Just give it some time. Watch out for news. I've put 10k into it and will sell on spikes but will buy back for 2 years. This share price right now is a joke!

if u r a gambler u should buy desire petroleum (DES).. expecting results next week and there is BIG rumour they have found oil. Do your own research though.

Cheers dMaster. I only brought 1k into VOG today, hope you are right.. May take a look at the others tomorrow. Why and what do you know about the oil business???
