Could you transfer in £500 in at beginning of month and then transfer out that amount the next day and repeat this process for 4 weeks? would that count as you transferring in the allocated amount or are you not allowed to withdraw the £1750 till the end of the year?
Need to be careful about ending up with a fraud marker on your record. No switching bonus is worth that. Banks can and do share and verify information on applications. I think HSBC are being quite short sighted and behind the times in their policies, particularly with the older generation. No longer do people have gold plated final salary pensions. They can draw whatever income they want from their pension pots, so effectively their income is whatever they want it to be. If someone is prudent and draws only a small income, leaving the rest to grow for the future they are effectively excluded from offers like this (annoyed)
Stretch the truth? (cheeky) Once you've got the £150 bonus you can always switch somewhere else again....
Only clicked on this to see the comments about the OPs picture. Looks like he's giving her one. Just me with the dirty mind then (embarrassed)
Same kind of thing here. Myself and my partner have done all the switching offers but i was able to do HSBC whereas she wasn't, only reason i could think for this was that her income didn't meet the threshold for this account. Could be wrong but no other bank has ever rejected her applications
