For those that used the HSBC switch offer recently, this will not work. Heat though :) >This offer is limited to one payment per customer or joint account, and you'll get the money within 28 days of all the criteria being met. Sorry, we can only offer this to people who haven’t previously held an account with us, and/or has not opened a HSBC current account on or after 1 January 2018. You may hold a HSBC current account and still qualify for the offer, as long as the current account was opened before 1 January 2018. We reserve the right to refuse your application and withdraw this offer at anytime. Credit is subject to status and an assessment of your financial circumstances. £125 cash offer ends midnight 12 July 2021. To qualify for the £125 cash offer your application must be received before midnight 12 July 2021 and your account must be opened on or after 14 June 2021.


Good for you.


I applied a week ago and the offer was £100 I got a message from them today saying sorry for the wait its taking longer than expected and they are going to give me £125 now


It would be correct to assume that that if you applied when the offer was £100 then you’ll get £100.


I've expired that one since it's £125 not £100 now and I think the "£100 to leave" offer isn't available either (presumably not available for new customers).

£80 cashback on £800+ spends at Dell using Lloyds Bank Everyday Offers @ Lloyds

Just seen this in my Lloyds Bank app. Earn £80 cashback on your Dell purchase when you spend £800 or more. Offer expires 29/06/21, valid one time only.

150 on Amex


Same deal on Santander


A lot of work schemes entitle you to 20% off.


Make sure you shop around properly. The few items I just checked were over 10% cheaper on Amazon and Currys anyway, with no minimum spend. You could further reduce Currys by another 10% if you used discounted gift cards and cashback

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.

Thanks both :)


Good deal as a fee-free BT card if you've already used up the All-in-one deal. However, Santander's tech is dreadful - you still can't BT with an Amex online and have to spend 20 mins on the phone to them. Plus the card is basically useless at the end of its 0% period as Santander make it impossible to switch to a new deal, instead forcing users to close the matured account and reapply for a new card.

Lloyds, Virgin Money and Post Office immediately informs after a soft check if you are going to be accepted. This is my experience with them. You don't get the misleading eligibility email after a soft check as Santander. Santander after a soft check emailed me that I can get the card with a good credit limit. When I applied, my application was rejected. I wrote to them, and they replied that their eligibility email is a marketing tool. I have complained to ombudsman. Hopefully, I'll soon hear from ombudsman if this misleading practice is allowed.


Same as all the providers when they do a soft check?


Indeed. That's normal for all credit card groups. The big problem in my opinion is that Santander doesn't even have the process to do a credit card swap. E.g. When jumping between the normal 18 months 0% card and the 26 months 0% All-in-one card. That's pretty awkward if you're already happy with Santander. They should make it easy to stay as a customer like Lloyd's and MBNA do.


At the end of the 0% balance transfer period you would not be able to transfer the outstanding balance to another Santander credit card with a 0% promo, you’d have to transfer externally.


Thanks for posting. Just to let you know that your thread was selected for our Highlights pages (highfive)

No they shouldn’t be available for all to see. That falls under the commercially sensitive information I mentioned. It would allow competitors to see what each other offer in terms of rates and makes the market less competitive as everyone would just go with the one offering the lowest higher rate.


I make no mention of lenders criteria. I’m saying there range of APR’s that they offer should be communicated clearly. I’ll give you an example, lender A 3-18% or lender B 5-14%. I can then go and make a decision of where to apply. Now picture you and me both have identical situations and both apply with lender A, I get 3% yet you get 18%. This has nothing to do with commercially sensitive information. They have to offer 51% of successful applications the advertised rate, the rest they can charge whatever. So I’m arguing for more transparency which I do not see you convincing me as a bad thing


Actually they don’t. Lenders criteria is commercially sensitive information. You’re offered what they feel is appropriate for you based on their assessment of your application.


Noooo lol Basic credit cards these days can be called Platinum cards and they’re entry level for any user.


My point is that it being a lawful requirement is not necessarily a positive. Yes it’s a way to compare the costs but they need to be far more clear of the ranges of APR’s.
