Not true. You can use the app for that. It generates the code. App is absolutely fine. At least for what my needs are.

Do you not use your app to generate a security code? Miles Easier
Ive just closed my account with HSBC after taking advantage of a similar offer last year. They have a very good (interest) regular saver account you qualify for if you open an Advance account.
The switch was easy and trouble-free, but I found their in-branch service terrible. I would have stayed with them if not for this, but I wanted to use a branch occasionally. Also the security in place for logging in online is a little laborious.

I did the switch last year they’ve been good, only trouble I will say is they don’t show your correct balance straight away on there app when you’ve made a purchase but they do show you your available balance below. Confusing at times.
You can apply for an Advance Bank Account if you:

  • can pay in £1,750 or more each month (or at least £10,500 every 6 months)
  • are 18 or older and live in the UK or EU
  • are happy for us to do a credit check against your name (if you live in the UK)

I agree. I access my account via my fingerprint on my iPhone. No keypad needed.

Same here on Android. Being able to log in so easily is an absolute revelation!!
I too took advantage of their £200 offer last year. Does anyone know how thoroughly they check?

Has anyone succeeded in 2 switching offers from the same bank?
Does anyone if this is open to First Direct account holders?
HSBC were a ballache to transfer too, took nearly a month. Had to go inshop to verify myself, never had that before.
They paid the bonus quickly mind once the transfer had finished.
i applied for this account last year alongside a credit card
they declined me- even tho i have a good credit record but gave me a credit card with a £5,000 limit
Thanks. Just applied for £75 offer, too poor for the other.

Because I don’t like them


I wasn't aware you had to explain to others on here why you don't like some organizations.

This is so true. I'm a uni student and they rejected my appeal for an increased overdraft but the amount of loops I had to go through just to ask was unbearable.

They phased out the physical key fob some time ago although you can still use them if you want to

I hope people have a better experience than I did. I switched to them just a few months back, there was a switch offer but it was ending in 10 days. No problem, the bank say they'll switch you in 7 days. Except they didn't. They texted me three days after I applied saying they were running slowly because of a high number of applicants and they would switch me on date X. Trouble was that was after the switch offer had ended, highly convenient (for them).

After the switch I wrote to them and said it was not through any fault of my own that the switch was not done before the cut-off date for the switch offer and would they still honour it. They said no, they didn't have to. Coupled with the bad branch service, and that it took them over a month to give me the telephone banking PIN which you need for everything including registering for internet banking. You cannot even talk to them on the phone, because after asking for your account details the next question is what are characters X and X from your telephone banking PIN.
I switched last month. The switch took place on the appointed day , no problems. Online banking and App all work fine.

The £175 'bonus' was posted into my account 10 days later. The easiest switch I've done (and I've done a few:) ) Alos the quickest for paying out the bonus too. I seem to recall Nat West last year took 2 months or more
Can you upgrade to an advanced account from your normal HSBC account and get any money?!

The first comment was ‘no thanks’. It didn’t really express and deep thoughts on the subject in their likes or dislikes.
A bit like saying no thanks to a cup of tea. You might have just had one or prefer a beer instead right now, know I do.

Totally agree with you regarding in-branch service. I've been with them since it was Midland bank but really thinking about moving banks as its all self service and there's only one branch left in the middle of town. I remember going into the branch to get some cash out as it was going to be over the card limit and because they have no tills, I was given a piece of paper to hand to the business banking cashier to withdraw cash. Utter shambles

They’ve done away with it now.
I did this 6 months of so ago, I dislike them, loking at my account transactions seem to take days to appear (despite coming off my balance) my old bank Halifax it showed instantly. Alo the app and website are slow. I will consider switching again at some stage

You're talking about accessing via mobile, we aren't, you're the dummy for jumping to conclusions.
Heavy banking admin is much better on a big screen, I'm sure you don't need to do that bullsblood, if you are just checking that your universal credit has been paid

What?

Nobody asked anyone to explain why they don't like an organization. But it also makes 0 sense to comment "no thanks" on a deal without including a justification - that's just redundant when there are voting buttons.
I swapped to them a couple of years ago and remember the in branch method was so complicated, if I remember rightly I needed at least 2 passwords, I then applied for a mortgage with them and that process was so long winded and annoying I gave up after a month and went to the Nationwide which was so much simpler.
I've just taken the Natwest offer, very simple process completed during a half hour train journey.
Each to their own but personally I wouldn't deal with HSBC again.
May be just for business bank accounts but they will charge you for paying-in cash !!
£1 for every £100
I'm not sure how they are allowed to do this in this country.

Does anyone if this is open to First Direct account holders?


"You may hold a first direct and/or M&S Bank current account and still qualify for this offer"
