Same offer for First Direct too... https://firstdirect.visaoffers.eu/signin
Great!. Another Mr bean.
I think it’s worth looking at ‘firstofficers’ other comments on other threads... mildly funny...
The confusion is in what you wrote. On the one hand you said "who is going to spend £100 in WHSmiths" then on the other "I checked out online and didn't receive cashback". Revise hard.
This thread (lol)
Hi - did the offer come thru from visa?
Offers don't show anymore. Expired?
Not showing / tracking on mine either
I'll wait until the 10th before bothering to contact them then as that's 5 working days from the transaction showing.
They say within 5 days, lol
I get that it’s quite easy - especially when you only have to setup standing orders. But when you have 7 current accounts (to help budget) - I really don’t want another sat dormant for a year!
Thanks for the info, that's not too bad and easier than going to branch. I had mine open for the year for the regular saver so the £50 was a nice bonus on top of the interest I earned from that. I just set up standing orders from my main bank account to transfer the £1750 in on payday, pay some of that into the monthly saver, then the rest back out the day after, so I could mostly forget about it for the year. It's usually pretty straightforward and quick opening a new account with your existing bank and a few days to set up or move existing direct debits across. I ended up with 3 accounts I was just using to move between all the switching offers until I'd been through most of them, then held off for a year before our remortgage was due. Just looking into what new offers are out now I've not done before.
No - had to call up and go through some steps. Only takes around 10 mins. Not keeping it open as I can’t be bothered with the faff of £1750 going in/out each month. Appreciate that it’s £50 but a year is a long time to wait for £50 and for the faff of finding another donor account and setting that up before switching.
Was online banking registration entirely online then? Did you get a key code generator thing through the post? As for moving yours, why not keep it open for the extra £50 and open another donor account for NatWest?
Registered for online banking so I could get the £150. Not keeping it for the year to get the £50. Moving it onto NatWest for another £125!! :)
That would seem to fit with when mine have been accepted. Shame they don't just say that on the site and save everyone the bother of trying to figure out if it's a new code or not!
So after I chased them further they said one code per person per quarter
That's not entirely true as I've managed to get the offer at least twice this year (might be 3 times, I can't remember) when the code number has changed from the previous month's.
Printed out and was duly rejected by Costa, can HSBC do anything right? Obviously I got the drink for free after some gentle flirting, but the comments above it appears as if it was the same code as I used last time
yeah exactly, only 1000 is very stingy, considering its also open to HSBC employees.....
I don't buy stuff though unless I need it most of the time. Wanting it isn't enough, so normally save.
No, this card isn't good for existing debt due to the fee. But for larger purchases it's a good interest free period. People often criticise credit cards citing the old line "don't buy what you can't afford", but interest free periods mean that you effectively get something cheaper, as prices will have gone up once the interest hits. They're a really powerful tool, if used responsibly
If you have a TCB account, you could try this instead: https://www.topcashback.co.uk/tesco-bank-foundation-credit-card/
Agreed. HSBC are so slow its unresl. I wasn’t automatically accepted had to send wages etc... But first world problems. For me I can get my gas fire and get £25 off so its a no brainer You would be better getting a credt builder card to start you off
I applied for one of these cards online on the 19th September. I still have not received it over 1 month later. I phoned HSBC who told me I'd been accepted, and that the card would be sent shortly. So if you do apply, you may be waiting some time for your card.
Can I balance transfer from my HSBC premier to a new advance MasterCard?
Yes but at a higher fee of 1.4% https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/credit-cards/balance-transfer-credit-cards/#hsbc
I mean I feel your reply wasn’t abrupt in the slightest. (lol)
Read the first line of the post. What does it say? If you need to join advance then it’s here
Can existing non-Advance HSBC customers get this pls?
Transferred the money tuesday. Bonus payment received today. Nice one :)
Does anyone know if you can pay the £1750 in parts? As I get paid fortnightly and for the month it's slightly above the 1750.
Opened the account and started the switch from lloyds. Didn't mention about having to go into branch.. so fingers crossed
So I win the bet :)
No . Haven't got a car
Sure, it's also saved in our area so you can retrive it anytime. That's sad :(
"Out of codes. Come back in November."
If I screenshotted the code yesterday will it work even though they are out of codes?
Just tried - they are out of codes
Code never appeared for me when I tried yesterday. Just got the Costa logo in a box at the bottom of the page
The point is; even though it is NOT Quidco, and you might have done everything right, Qatar might not approve your cashback. That was the case in mine. It wasn't an issue with Quidco, it was Qatar who denied it. Just don't keep your hopes high, that's it.
This isn’t Quidco though is it? You make a purchase using your qualifying HSBC card in the qualifying period and if the cashback doesn’t come through, you contact HSBC and they sort it out as long as you’ve followed the terms and conditions of the offer.
I used a Cashback offer from Qatar Airways from Quidco before. Even though it tracked perfectly and the amount was correct, they never paid the cashback to Quidco and cost me £100+. So, I don't trust anything Qatar does.
Not showing on my HSBC page.
Also availableon first direct visa offers.
bp are serious about profits game.
I had this, set it up, set the app to pay £40 as directed. It unlocked the pump. Would you believe the app/pump cut the fuel off exactly at £39.50! so no £5. I am complaining to BP. Beware
yes please ......hot hot
Any UK-issued HSBC/First Direct Visa card will do. You need to register your card at https://hsbcuk.visaoffers.eu/ or https://firstdirect.visaoffers.eu/signin as appropriate and you may need to specifically opt in to get the offer.
Do you need a HSBC credit card fro this ?
That’s this hsbc card here spend £300 and get £25 cashback
No. That's the minimum amount you have to transfer. So you would have already spent the 300quid on the card your transferring from
So you have to spend 300 quid on it to get 25 quid?
Can you check if eligible before applying?
No they go via Bank of Ireland.
I never get these offers. Nothing on my santander Hsbc is excellent and the offers
Hi. How long did it take for your transaction to track please? Cheers.
Of course. It's your gift card balance.
But what if you do not spend the £300 will it just sit in your Amazon account?
Pockit card has just come so im going to try this today, £249 paypoint, plus £50 cashback...Once with my HSBC card, then another with my Nationwide. Hopefully it goes smoothly.
...and get £25 back too!
26 months 0% - this is the type of card id use to buy a new mobile phone outright, pay off promptly but know I have over 2 years to do so, and run a no contract sim only deal.
Very good rates to be fair hot from me
It's a current account so they can't force you to keep you money in there! Yes that would work and the transfers could go in and out on the same day if you like. The hurdle is getting HSBC to accept you for the account if you don't have the required income.
There a very few good financial reasons to go with these banks. Not going to deny they are far better with their customers, but people are here to make their money go further
Could you transfer in £500 in at beginning of month and then transfer out that amount the next day and repeat this process for 4 weeks? would that count as you transferring in the allocated amount or are you not allowed to withdraw the £1750 till the end of the year?
Need to be careful about ending up with a fraud marker on your record. No switching bonus is worth that. Banks can and do share and verify information on applications. I think HSBC are being quite short sighted and behind the times in their policies, particularly with the older generation. No longer do people have gold plated final salary pensions. They can draw whatever income they want from their pension pots, so effectively their income is whatever they want it to be. If someone is prudent and draws only a small income, leaving the rest to grow for the future they are effectively excluded from offers like this (annoyed)
Stretch the truth? (cheeky) Once you've got the £150 bonus you can always switch somewhere else again....
Mine switches in a couple of days but don't think I'll stay for the extra 50, it's all been a bit irritating, had to go into branch, can't do as much with the app as my old bank, fingerprint scanner only works on a few phones, website doesn't have mobile option just desktop view.
Thanks, applications all done. I`m not going to bother staying for a year. I`ll take my £150 and on to the next!
I did 3 weeks back. The whole process was online. They paid the 150 within 10 days of the switch being completed. Have set a reminder for 12 months later to ensure that the other 50 are paid out as well.
My understanding is that credit applications clear after 6 months (or at least they get ignored by the underwriters), so you should be fine. But yes, there is definitely a short term impact (up to 6 months, less so up to 12).
Update! Just opened & switched mine & hubbies Natwest accounts. Says open and will receive welcome pack by email, account details/Card by post. £300 for 30 minutes work....Thanks op :)
I thought the same, but as I don't go to Costa or any coffee shop much, I just needed one voucher, otherwise I would have contacted the customer service and ask ;) Anyway, I should visit Costa tomorrow and expire this is if it's truly expired.
I had the same experience. I'd thought it was one free drink a month but I got the same code each month so it seems like 1 drink for the entire period
Now it's American owned are they going to behave like amazon, Facebook, Starbucks to name but a few when it comes to paying UK tax?
This is another point, I have used only one code back in June too, but the one I got seems different. It's funny we are all getting different results. I wouldn't be surprised if it's all messed up.
Without logging in it tells me it's expired, when I log in it shows 'How to redeem... click here' but when I follow the link it shows be the voucher that I previously claimed back in June but haven't yet used, so not a new code. No deal here.
I got a code and then when i tried to use it it was expired before it was even used! Useless but I suppose these things ate for free. Tje free sports pass was good when it was on.
Unfortunately I don't have previous codes so can't answer your question.
I've just looked back. Got the voucher in June and it is the same reference. Missed July's unfortunately. I wonder if they issue all 1700 with the same code so when redeemed they can tell where they're from?
That's interesting. I've screenshot my voucher and it's always the same code each month. I tried it a few months ago and was told it hadn't worked in store so assumed it was because it was the same code and I'd used it the previous month. Maybe they just didn't put it through the till correctly that time. Is your code the same number as previous months?
I've claimed for the freebie for the last three months or more and it's worked every time.
