Get £125 by switching your current account @ First Direct

First Direct have improved their bank account switch incentive to £125. To get the £125 cash offer you need to open a 1st Account, switch your everyday banking to First Direct usi… Read more

I would advise to do a soft credit check before switching. I got rejected because my credit score didn't satisfy them. All of my credit scores with Experian, ClearScore and Credit Karma were very high but its not about the score, its about what credit cards and loans you have and who with. MSE have a tool that does a soft search and will give you a good indication whether you will get accepted or not. When I spoke to First Direct, the customer service was awful. They wouldn't assist me to tell me exactly why they rejected me.


I opened an account with them last December and then transferred my current account. Still haven't received my incentive payment. Last time I managed speak with them a few weeks ago they said the payment was on its way. I have tried contacting them again recently but their messaging system from their app has never worked, they don't reply to emails and I can't afford the hours it takes for them to answer the phone. I think that they are supposed to pay out if you leave but I don't hold out much hope for that.


Just a couple ot weeks ago, if that.


I switched my wife's 35 years old Lloyd's account on Monday. Today we received debit card and details of account and one call to register and 2nd for activation code. Took maximum half an hour and everything is working as it should be. Switch will take 7 days.


No. Opening a second current account and subsequently closing it will not cause your bank to get upset.

Anyone who has received a HSBC switch bonus before - can you advise on how quickly the £125 gets paid? Been a few weeks after the switch now and haven't received anything yet


Thanks for sharing. Actual story behind why people think it's rubbish is always appreciated. Most people tend to just say it's a terrible bank, stay away etc without giving any context.


I will give this a go. Thanks


Can I pay in £1750 from my other bank account and then transfer it back out? Does that count as paying money in?


Still awaiting my bonus.

Your CS sucks. I am going to delete my account and make you viral as a scam. 4 emails and you don't respond. Imagine if I had a real problem?. Twitter and Facebook here I come (y)


Had exactly the same message from Joel on Tuesday. Still no bonus as yet...


It's been week + and finally I get this.... Thanks for your messages and I'm sorry to hear that you still haven't received your welcome bonus yet. Just so you know, if the promotional link is valid the bonus points should be automatically applied to your account within 72 hours. You can read more about it here. Rest assured that we’re currently looking into a possible issue concerning the mechanism behind the welcome bonus. If you’re eligible for the promotional bonus we’ll make sure to manually apply the missing points to your account. We’ll also keep you in the loop about any updates on this problem. Meanwhile, thank you for your patience with us and I’m sorry for any inconvenience caused by this. Best wishes, Joel Team Curve


If they can't discuss issues , isn't it that a pointless exercise? Ie yea we see support ticket but since contacted by Facebook, can't discuss it? I can check myself last update 7th June " Jen W (Curve) 7 Jun 2021, 16:27 BST Hi Mark, I hope you're doing well and I am sorry you had troubles with your card.

Get an £80 Amazon eGift voucher when you open a ANNA Money business current account + 6 Months Free Banking with code via PepperBonus

Reposting as the Amazon incentive has increased :) We've worked with ANNA Money and PepperBonus to offer hotukdeals members an £80 Amazon eGift voucher when you open a business … Read more

Hi, offer says that I need to have some PepperBonus email address - what is this? Is my understanding correct that ANNA Money business account will offer 6months free banking, and £80 Amazon voucher will be credited in the 4th month, which means that after bonus is there I can close Anna account before 6m free banking is over? eGift voucher needs to be requested under 'My Account' 'My Activity' - via Anna account or where? Has anyone actually received this eGift voucher already from previous promotion and could share his success story? Thank you for comments :)


if this is a business account do i need to be a buisness to get the deal?


I'm self employed, does that count as a registered business? I just work for myself and do self assessment, not through a limited company etc.


Hi @Palwan - Yes the offer has been extended to 19th June as per the page on PepperBonus :) The original terms are on the post and will be updated shortly (y)


@Mark I wonder if this is still active. Terms says - Sign up for the ANNA business current account must take place through the provided link before 23:59 on 19/05/2021

Hi, after further discussion due to the increased voucher and after 28 days we'll look at reposting this offer in the near future. Thanks all.


What are the benefits of this over say using standard bank account for business?


Revolut (horror)


Signing up for Tide process was similar, but that was for £100 cash - and that arrived quicker than the £60 in vouchers promised "within four months." This "complexer" process and lesser bribe isn't tempting me to switch. Especially when I'm unreassuringly told, If you have not received an email from us after this period has expired or if your participation is not listed under 'My Activity', submit a 'Missing Reward Claim' under 'My Account' > 'Missing Reward Claim' within 90 days and we'll track your participation manually.


Why is it too much hassle? Open account (providing ID), pay in £50, wait 4 months and get £60. Not much hassle at all. Each to their own - £60 for what was 15 minutes effort seems a good deal to me with no requirement to move my existing bank.
