HSBC Bank Account customers upgrading to Bank Account Plus via Personal Internet Banking from 1st to 9th May 2008 will receive £50. Your account will be credited after 2 months, minimum 12 month contract.

You can also get £50 cashback through Quidco for bank account plus making a total saving of £100 (12 months of bank account plus will cost £155.40) and you get loads of benefits!

Benefits of the bank account plus include:
* Worldwide family travel insurance - includes winter sports cover. (Not available to customers aged 70 years and over.)
* Preferential rates, terms or discounts available on overdrafts, mortgages, loans, savings and insurance.
* Credit card - annual 10% interest refund with your HSBC Bank Credit Card (plus £20 Quidco cashback here too)
* Identity Theft Assistance and Personal Security Protection - available 24/7 with a dedicated helpline and 24/7 Telephone Banking too.

* Enjoy a 0% overdraft for two months, while we transfer your account.
* plus more... (check the direct link for full details)

And also an added benefit of upgrading before 18th May: you'll receive 8% AER (7.72% gross) fixed interest on credit balances up to £1,000 and pay only 8% EAR fixed on debit balances up to £1,000 for 12 months from account opening.

I was tempted by bank account plus before but thought I'd get it a bit later in the year so I can fit 2 holidays in with the Travel Insurance, now this is a perfect time to start it up =D

IF your going to take advantage of all the 'benefits' then this is a good deal, i think there is also a get £5 for changing to paperless deal as well somewhere. Personally i would never use the things that you pay for so.. good deal though

Also, if you happen to be HSBC staff the cost of the plus account is £6 a month so you'd actually get £28 in your pocket (after the HSBC & Quidco cashback) and have the plus account completely free for the minimum 12 months =)

And be gentle, this is my first post! =) xx

thats a good deal for you then...lucky and well done on your first post!

Yes, this is true, but with that you don't get a cheque book or paying in book, but worth it for the environment =) Especially for those who mainly bank online anyway and don't really write out cheques. I like to keep paper copies of my statements though, just a habit I got into :thinking:

Yes, you need to go to Quidco (sign up if you havn't already) and then search for HSBC, then choose the one for bank account plus and follow that link and then apply for bank account plus on the HSBC website from there, and the activity should shortly track through Quidco & tell you when to expect your £50 from them =)

but then how does hsbc give you £50? don't you have to log in to apply for it? i think its gonna be £50 for quidco or hsbc, not both... but anyone confirm quidco has tracked?
travel insurance itself is worth £70 for 2 persons... so if i get quidco, i should be able to chase hsbc for the £50, and then it will be an extremely HOT deal

HSBC and First Direct same people, I've voted cold because of First Direct's attitude to customers by alienating low earners with their account charges for people earning less than £1,200 - a joke of a bank!

Is it really fair to vote the thread cold because of an opinion you hold on a bank that is linked to this one? I guess you're not the only one though because this thread now seems to be cold, which is a shame, I thought it was a good find :oops: £100 cashback can't be wrong in my books if you plan on using something.

Oh and also with that, I was shocked when First Direct said they were gonna charge if a certain amount of money wasn't paid into the account on a monthly basis, however I opened an e-savings account with them that I wasn't even using and that solved the problem - 2 products = no charge.

Quidco should pay £50 for every person who upgrades their account and they receive confirmation from HSBC stating the product has been upgraded, and HSBC will pay £50 in 2 months after you have applied for upgrade as long as it's succesful before the closing date (applying for products with them usually confirms overnight, it did with my ISA). Quidco havn't tracked mine yet but I'm not worried, I expect it will show tomorrow, and even if it doesn't show then I have filed a ticket with Aucionair when theirs didn't track a month ago and I just got confirmation that it has gone through and it has now tracked to my account, so as long as you keep all details you should be fine with the Quidco payout, and the HSBC one will show in a couple of months :thumbsup:

Over the last few years banks have seemed harder and harder to trust.

Why did they defend the OFT case when they had been paying out to almost everyone who threatened them with court basically so most people who would not go down that path would be ripped off.

Why are credit card charges increasing at the same time as base rates are falling? It seems like the old drug-dealer stunt of get them hooked cheap then up the costs.

Why do all mortgages now seem to include a four figure sum arrangement fee that for some strange reason does not fall under the APR calculations - even when the term of the mortgage is known?

So a cash back from a bank seems like a 110% cashback from Flybynight Mobiles but with potentially far greater stakes.

Does anyone know if Northern Rock was offering cashbacks last year? :-D:-D:-D

Thanks. That's what I thought. I use spybot which blocks some of theses sites. I now have a way round that though.

that's why the're consistently voted one of the best uk companies for customer service as well as being the most recommended bank in the world. you may want to check your facts, you only get charged if you only have a 1st (current) a/c and pay in less than £1500 pm. Just open a savings a/c as well (no need to use it) and you pay nothing.

wow even worse £1,500! ;-) Why should I be made to open another account to appease their share holders exactly? Don't get me wrong while I was with them their phone banking was great, but trying to charge me for my account ****** me right off!

but it takes a couple of mins to open the sav a/c, you end up getting great service for no cost. Thats a great deal in anyones book.

and, every other service industry charges their customers. why should banks be any different?

that said, my wife has a charges refund claim on hold with Yorkshire bank for a couple of grand. One hell of a charge for poor customer service. You don't always get what you pay for.
