For how many months does the 2x direct debits have to be paid out for? Can I open a donor account, have 2 DD, then switch and wait until I get the money? How long does it take to be credited? Thanks in aadvanc
You continue to behave as cheap_as_chimps.
You're begging for another cold vote :p
I had a similar experience - a friend recommended Nationwide. Neither of us got any money. I complained and was told I had quoted the wrong number when I signed up. Complained twice more and was told each time nothing could be done. Raised a formal complaint following their own procedures (the last step before complaining to the ombudsman) and was told it could be fixed - was told we would both be paid the £100 and an extra £75 compensation. Eventually we both got the £100 (it took about 6 months of complaining but their dismissive attitude had annoyed me). Never saw the £75 compensation (I'd lost the will to fight them anymore). What I learnt from it is that if Nationwide make a mistake their default position is "tough - that's our policy". Also they're incompetent. It's left me pretty unimpressed. I'm thinking of leaving again.
@jraf used the preposition "as", not the verb "to be", @jraf is correct, you are wrong, see my grammatical explanation above. He never claimed Nationwide "is" , he wrote "as". That's the difference.
