Incentives for opening Bank Accounts

    Just thought some might find this interesting. I opened an A & L current account in April last year to get the £100 incentive for switching - just checked my account to find that I had never received tihs money. I phoned and asked why - apologies and they have paid it in immediately.
    I opened a Natwest accout n to get a £50 incentive payment - didn't receive this until I rang and asked why (got it now!).
    Both of these payments should have been paid into my accounts automatically and I guess other people have opened accounts on the same terms. I'm just advising people to double check they did actually receive this money. Isn't it strange that automatic payments by 2 different institutions were not made to the same person. Coincidence? hmmmmm.
    £150 just for doublechecking and 2 phone calls.

    Have found you have to ask A&L for the bonus, but they always pay up with apologies. Probably hoping some people will not notice the missing money! This also applies to refer-a-friend £50 bonus deals
