New Bank Account "Deals"

A long time ago, you could set up a First Direct bank account and they would credit your account with £15 after 4 weeks or so - this was without having to deposit either a large sum up front or having to deposit a certain amount each month.

Are there any banks that still offer this type of deal/account please?

First Direct will deposit you £100 but you need to EITHER deposit I think £1500 a month OR have another service with them i.e a Savings account or Credit card etc (I think). I just joined them for the sole reason they offer the BEST level of customer service (rated by the public) so i'm looking forward to banking with them from here on! £250 interest free overdraft availabe too

Mmm thank you. I just want to start a separate small bank account so don't want to move my salary etc but if they offer this on the back if a credit card, I may look into further. Cheers!

Mine was.
ive been with FD for 15 years and would not use anybody else.
If you have a banking problem and no body else can help phone FD.
Anything goes wrong direct debit clained the wrong ammount for eg they fixed it and refunded me in less than 5 mins.
Thats service
The call centre staff speak english as a first language thats why they win so many awards.
