Also availableon first direct visa offers.
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 ?
Yea confirm first Direct doing it as well
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.
Of course they would. There is no minimum spend when you shop at Co-Op , some people will only need a pint of milk. The promotion is not run by Co-Op so they really won't care, nor have any idea you will even be getting any cashback.
Great I'll see what the maximum they'll let me have is. Already used HSBC but have Nationwide 5% and it has just come back on my Halifax too at 10%. I wonder if they'd let me get just a loaf of bread and whatever the max cashback is!
It definitely is , mine has tracked through Halifax rewards already at £30 . Max cashback I was allowed at one store was £30 , the last 2 I went in I could get £50 though, doubt you could get more than that though. No min spend although max reward was set at £30 . I got 2 x 4-pint of milk and £30 cashback last time this was on, £3.22 was paid as a cashback reward.
Is cash back included then? I hadn't thought of that but wonder what the maximum cash back they'd let you get is, and for what minimum actual spend.
Each Pre-paid card will have different fees if I remember correctly from when I looked into it. I just went for a £250 amazon top up and £50 cash back ;) , easy £30 & an extra £10 Amazon promo credit too.
...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....
When does this offer end?
I applied over a week ago and haven’t heard anything at all!
Does anyone know.... once you have gone thru the online application, if you are accepted - are you told straight away at the end of the application (like some other banks) - or is the 'we'll be in touch with you etc...' the precursor for being turned down?
** CAUTION ** I setup an 'advance' account but it is showing on their system as a 'bank account' they seem to be wiggling out of paying the £200 welcome bonus. I recommend you check you have opened the account you think you have and will be paid the welcome bonus.
Anyone know how long this offer is avaliable for?
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.
on Nationwide too.
Offer also available on first direct visa
Combined with the 21 points per £ this weekend.. it’s a win win!
It seems like the seller has stopped. Either their choice or ebays! It was a simple unidays search
What’s the magic search term?
Glad it worked!
Thanks for this....applied online last thursday, was asked by email to pop in with proof of course status - spent 10 minutes in HSBC saturday morning (no appointment required), just got the link for amazon voucher and 12 months student prime today- the prime added 12 months onto my existing service and £80 now sitting there waiting for the next deal! :-) oh yeh just to clarify I haven;t put a single penny in the account - no requirements to get the voucher and prime
I started uni at 16 in Scotland (Strathclyde), happy to see genius confirmation - but did graduate with 1st in top 1.5% aged 20.
I tried and got the same code. I think it's one per customer until they change what they have as a freebie.
Anyone managed to get a different Costa code more than one month? It says more codes available each month in the description but when I tried again the next month after I used it was the same code number so didn't work when I tried in store.
They are not that easy to open a new account though
not sure - but if you click on the link and register you should be able to
Is this for a HSBC premeium member too
Paying fees in my case, for £35k and less than 5years term is aboolutely pointless, as reduced interest wouldn't pay off the fee amount. So no fee deal for me only.
all in the timing, last time i looked you could get short fixes £0 fee and 1.25% hence take out a short term fix to save 1.5% on the 2.75%, and save the cash (overpayment funds) elsewhere earning interest, when the fix finishes you go onto a SVR, at which point assuming you can pay off the mortgage with no completion fees use your savings to pay off the entire mortgage (assuming T&Cs ok, some companies charge a fee to complete) but presumably you are lump summing monthly so the interest you pay is reducing anyway.. you can get 1.5% fixes (but they all seem to be a £995 booking fee) maybe an MA knows of some deals with zero fee,
1 year fix?? Sorry, but can't see any sense doing so. Could you explain? Fixed rates are generally higher than tracker rates. So why would I want to fix it now, hoping for lump sum paying off mortgage if I could do this on existing condition? I just want as said earlier, similar condition to what I have now, but with less interest rate.
Probably worth speaking to a mortgage advisor but one idea is take out a one year fix at a low rate knowing you will go onto a SVR (Hsbc 4.19%) at which point you make the lump sum and pay off the mortgage in full , depending on the svr terms. Maybe one for a few years time, The trackers long term will always be lower interest than fixed as the fix you are paying a premium , unless You time it well or get lucky
My aim.. Being able to make overpayment this is why I am happy with tracker. And pay off mortgage in less than 3-5years. Ideally same condition as now but with better interest rate. Btw I'm 38
Might come around again. Sign up to visa offers. They send new ones every 2 weeks. I think this one expired on the 25th or 26th
Has this definitely expired now. Annoyingly I put in for a credit card 2 weeks ago and it still hasn't arrived. My season ticket expires on Monday.
I got it on the 12th June about 4 days after I made the transaction.
@abuhaneefahali How many days does this take to show up on your account after the cleared payment.
Partner is with HSBC but doesn't seem to have this under her offers. Is this account specific?
I just received the cashback. The only issue is, I applied for the Season Ticket refund before the Cashback and I still haven't received it! Thameslink have agreed to refund me but it will take 20 working days, looks like they want to keep hold of that cash for as long as they can!
Glad it worked out for you :) hopefully this deal will appear again in the future and more people can take advantage of the season ticket discount
Turns out that this was a scorching hot deal! Just got this email: We're processing your £362.75 cashback We're pleased to say the cashback from your purchase has been confirmed. Please find the details below. Retailer: Trainline Date: 11/07/2018 Cashback: £362.75 Credit card holders please note cashback will change your overall outstanding balance but may not affect your minimum payment, so please check your statement. Cashback normally takes 5 working days, but may vary. Please ensure your card details are up to date so that you will always receive cashback for offers you have redeemed. I did try and post this specific to season tickets but HDUK Admin sent me to this thread.
I just cancelled it 2 hours before you wrote this comment :/ How does that work out though? You get more back for changing it than cancelling it?
Is often better to change your season ticket to the cheapest one available (not sure what that is at the moment), as you'll get a bigger refund than you would if you just cancel it.
The form says you need to have been in the UK for three years, is that really the case
If I said as a patient, would you section me now? SJT question (lol)
As a patient, as an FY1 or as a nurse or senior? :p
Dreading black Wednesday too (lol)
1st August ;) Technically already graduated - not on the GMC Register though until 23rd July (induction week) but apparently I can use the title already :o Still a month to go and already getting butterflies about not making any mistakes. Eeeek.
Just set up an advance account so thanks for this. Also worth noting if you sign up to the account before 30th June they give you £150, plus a further £50 after a year, providing you meet their criteria.
Nice idea, but from what ive seen already u cn pick up similar offers elsewhere
Heat added (y)
Did it work again ?
I did this last month, and used it 2 weeks after I screenshot and it worked. I can see this again and it says 1st july to august and "We have 1,700 free cooler or iced drinks to give away each month between 1st July 2018 and 31st August 2018." I claimed it and it's just the same qr code and number as last time. Will have to go to Costa and see if it works.
I got it like 2 week before I have used it, so it isn't definitely that ;)
Do premier customers need these type of freebies? (skeptical)
Got my voucher be warned get it and use it the same day went to costerband they said it had expired. They tried it again and it didn't work! Waste of time I think you need to redeem and then use the same day.
Hehe . Happens to me also at times
Damn XD XD XD
They don't want you on there team pal
I meet all the requirements but when I apply it's declined for the advanced account, any ideas??
Thanks for the info. This is a terrible deal then, seems most people have been declined whilst taking a small hit on their credit score from the failed application.
F this carp. I am a current HSBC customer, I made the application on line, had to go the the branch, call them, and now they want to see my last 3 payslips! Not worthy the hassle Never again, HSBC is on my blacklist alongside Admiral .
To be honest before the update a few weeks ago, their app looked like something from the late 90s. Their website isn't great, but I'm getting used to it.
Apple here, it’s always wanting in app updates, regular updates on App Store - assume these are security related because the app never offers anything new other than a pissy new’ experience everytime!
Sounds bad. No problem here with android on a s7 edge.
I opened the app there and it’s said download a update, I did, started app and this app expires 28th June please go download our new app - that doesn’t work LOL
