I thought I was ahead of the game and applied for this account for my son when he turned 18 in May (he has an unconditional offer). They wrote back saying the application was too early for September starters and he had to reapply after 1st July.


Great, lets discriminate people because of their age. If you are older than 25, you are out of luck bro.


This promotion is actually for University students. If you are a genius and get into university before 18, then you're at a loss mate :D


But totally understand as well, sometimes it's right to just leave it and move on and don't give that bank your custom again.


I would strongly recommend using Resolver if you want to give it a shot. It makes it a click of a button to escalate the complaint to the Ombudsman when the time comes.

Noob question, I get paid for consultation by a French company. I note they take my gbp invoice, then pay me, but by the time I see it in my UK HSBC account I have lost 1.8%. Am I better using the EUR account on my revolut card? Will I still lose some as it is in theory an international transfer? Is it likely I am currently being charged by my bank to convert to gbp or are all charges being done by the FR companies bank account at time of transfer?


That's N26 if it was a debit card or it's AMEX if it's a credit card.


I have just set one up right now, super easy. It’s to pay rental income from my overseas property holding into. Just need some clarification do you get a new separate EuRo card for the euro side of starling? I do love the look of their cards, I thought they were the coolest thing ever, until I saw someone with a clear see through card.


Paying a fair amount of money at the end of the month for my wedding abroad. I used transferwise for the deposit etc which worked well but would this work out cheaper? Cheers


this a good bank to hide money ?

Card came this morning along with full paperwork - nothing to fill in and send back - just have to phone them to set up security. Very impressed so far. Dave


Had a letter saying my Post Office Bank Account was being closed down. I have no dd's etc in on it and only a small amount of money - so this came at perfect time. I filled in application on Weds - got a text Yesterday to say the account is open and details are on the way ! Very quick - they didn't ask me to send any id etc...……… Dave


I applied on the last day, and it said approved but I heard nothing until this morning when my welcome pack and debit card arrived. Since then I've set up all my security with them by phone, and got online and the app up and running. Nice and easy.


Should be entitled to the £125 still if you went through MSE and did the online sign up process before Monday I believe, the actual switch etc. and other terms to get the bonus you have a couple of months to carry out from what I was reading, will be keeping a close eye on it anyway


I received the same. I still think we’re entitled to the £100 if you transfer another account into it. So still £100, I guess.

Ok my mate just tried a cash machine withdrawal was free and when I tried it said €5.00 very odd.


No, not a joint account totally separate. Don’t understand how one of us gets charged the other it’s free. Unless I’m the one under the old terms and conditions, it’s very strange.


You have a joint account with your mate?


That is odd. I never though to try my Starling card in Portugal, as I assumed if it charged my partners it would charge mine. Wish I'd tried it now! How can it vary from customer to customer though? Ian


This cash machine is free to use for me on my Starling card but my mates card says there is a fee. Very strange, we both have the same card and the standard current account. It’s not a joint account btw. We tried the cards several times, his came up as a £3 processing fee, mine just went through as normal. Checked my account and wasn’t charged.

Combine all your cards into one using Curve and get £10 FREE (1% Cashback / Payment Protection / Free Spend Abroad) when you join using code

Update 1
Curve launches Curve Cash - 1% instant cashback!

This new program works in addition to reward programs on your underlying cards. This means you can ‘double dip’ on spend you push through your Curve Card.

The new scheme offers cashback at many top retailers. You get different benefits depending on which card you hold:

Curve Blue (the free version): 1% instant cashback on up to three pre-selected retailers for 90 days.

Curve Black: 1% instant cashback on up to three pre-selected retailers indefinitely

Curve Metal: 1% instant cashback on up to six pre-selected retailers indefinitely

You can select the retailers you earn cashback at. The choice includes top brands such as Amazon, Apple, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Tesco, M&S, Pret, TFL, Uber, Gett, Spotify and Netflix.
Thought this was a fab offer and something i'm really interesting in doing with my accounts. The premise of Curve is to give you one card for you to use and replaces ALL your se… Read more

You say try going to a lot of African countries, I am quite happy not going to Africa but I have been to a lot of other countries.


Your lucky . Try going to a lot of African countries


I travel a lot and I have never ever had Mastercard go down


It was good. Untill they put up the price. Your rewards will barely cover the fees so becomes pointless and I spend at 2k amonth. There payment protection isn't great. A year later and I'm still waiting for a refund. The best thing and only good thing I like is I can share my credit card with the wife as I use the curve and she uses the CC. Using abroad and slot of times MasterCard goes down so your left in limbo. Stick to the free version.


@Curve_Official any chance of a comprehensive, yet simple list of all the updates / features / changes, that have been in alpha /beta / test, since last year or before... that are meant to be coming from the new global update of the issuing supplier of Curve cards... eg: What is the stance on the Amx setup that was to be replaced again, so Amx works? Black Card (alpha & beta) users and what they are using and what they are going to have to use, is still very confusing? Will the new, new cashback, still work, with the underlying card, already has the same cashback/points on it? Few others, but as you are official here, the replies will be a lot, less fluffy, than on your chat / SM replies (y)

Yes, if you will compare with Starling you can say its classic not prehistoric! can compare with Barclays app, which for me is laggy and don't know from where to choose when I need to sort out something via their "powerful app"! For me customer services via telephone from FD is one of the best from UK, followed by Nationwide


Pretty easy to hit that criteria essentially free


Literally just finished switching to FD from Monzo today (Starling is my main account). Customer support confirmed that I have met all the criteria as the switch included £2k. I've also now set up the FD Regular Saver. The FD app is prehistoric looking compared to Starling. So I will certainly continue using Starling as my main account. But that 5% saver is v.good, and FD customer service has been very good so far.


Think this is expired and link only shows £100


1 or 2 direct debits I think, but they weren't necessary

I just move £1000 out to a different bank, then move it back in the next day. Never had any problems qualifying.


There are no better options out there in terms of interest on a bank account. 3% on £1500 is still the best bank account rate out there (Tesco dropping to 1%), and £500 paid in a month is perhaps the easiest qualification that any bank account could request.


I have already left for ever! Only switched to them for the deal, which they managed to mess up completely! 3% on a max ballance of £1,500 is only about £45 a year... and you have to pay in £500 a month to qualify. There are some much better options out there, with much less pain!


I know push payments is quite an elaborate scam... But some of the stuff you hear in the papers. Come on people, so obviously a scam some of it. Ringing from the met police I need to transfer your money into a secure account etc - It's a sad thing that this is a selling point for a bank now.

Can you still do this as the 7th June date has passed?


Switches last time and had a multitude of problems including a security breach. Just a reminder why I left NatWest in the first place.


Hello good friends. The qualifying section that states: pay in £1500 by July 12 - does it have to be from a different bank? Anyone know? I have a NatWest account , and also a different NatWest joint account. I’m considering transferring the £1500 in/out of both these banks until I’ve hit the £1500. Will this qualify? Cheers.


Wow! Didn’t matter in the end, I needed to make sure the switch didn’t happen on the first monday or Tuesday of June. Natwest laughed and said don’t worry your switch wouldn’t have happened by then. Kudos to their incompetence.

Voted cold as the cost of any of the excesses is more than buying a separate policy for any of the perks i.e. AA breakdown has an excess/call out charge of £70


If you upgrade a joint account to silver you get cover for 2 people instead one same price £9.95 making it less than a fiver each for exactly the same services for 2

I got a letter from Natwest but took it as just an marketing exercise and didn't look into it. Stumble don this thread and now I have. I'm being offered £1,000 to switch. Was probably going to close my Natwest account anyway. Sill not to switch now. Problem is I don't expect any turn over for a few months for a multitude of reasons. I'm wondering who to switch too, haven't been able to find the turn over requirements.


Clydesdale have just today paid the £1050 they initially offered. Had an emails to say that the switch was complete and the money would reach my account within 14 days. I checked today (day of email) and it was in there. I know other banks have different policies but Clydesdale pay up pretty much immediately. Hope this helps.

There are/were lots of people offering their codes so there's plenty around...lots of codes are being posted today: Yep, about 190 accounts in total. Bearing in mind this promo started about 16 weeks ago, that gave sufficient time to open lots of accounts. Of course, the vast majority of those accounts are now closed with the remaining few closing within the next week. Anyone considering setting up a donor account in order to switch has missed the boat now, because if you applied today then you'll get your debit card on Monday/Tuesday. Starting a switch takes 7 working days, so the promo will have finished by then. For those who have current accounts (that can be used to switch away from) today/tomorrow is really your last chance.


That puts my efforts to shame, I am pleased to have got around £2k in vouchers.


Number is ‭0800 085 2202‬. It was in the terms.


Great (annoyed) Santander made me go into branch to switch into existing accounts, claimed it was not possible to do it on phone. Maybe that changed.... But should still be 2k up by end June 😁


How many people is that?! That’s almost 200 accounts.

The letter received doesn't mention that making an appointment is required. So when I went in had to schedule one, was only supposed to last 30mins. Went in for my appointment to check documents. Turns out that my application has been deleted due to a "glitch", due to having a student account 15 years ago, so details clashed. So told had to apply again, which was a pain as went in my lunch break but was there for an hour going through application and setting up mobile app. Didnt look at my address or ID document, I read the posts above and took my wageslips just in case, as I was asked how I would meet the minimum monthly payments.

that's surely personal though right - I got a 4k limit on mine, that's surely more than enough for a months spending isn't it? Especially given bills are generally direct debit these days


Why does young = inexperienced? Seem to doing a decent job compared to the old experienced people running the rest of the banks.


Credit limit too small for all monthly spending, and Amazon have cut halved their cashback rate. Hopefully they do credit limit increases soon.

Ah yes, you're right. Better to trust the old inexperienced persons who currently run our banks. Or perhaps that's unfair. The old people running our banks are actually very experienced... at being robbing b**tards.

Sorry for you, in this case this is no deal, Revolut always provided the card for free and charged for delivery. They had a deal before when the postage was free, or they were paying you to join. I read that people topped up, applied and were charged for delivery, so they complained and the postage fee was credited to their account. Perhaps worth a try.
