Next month we should just say "Didn't you read the news? The reward is now only paid to those who have at least 5K in their current account." and see what happens.

Now now people play nicely the OP may have only opened the account over a month ago and may not be aware when the £5 reward is payed each month.

Were bound to get a few MSE forum members posting this question, after all were the ones that are recommending this account just for the purpose of getting the £5 monthly reward.

I noticed with the £100 reward you had to transfer all DDs and salary to The Halifax. Is this also true of the £5 reward account now that the £100 isn't available or can you just open it as a second current account an transfer £1000 a month over?

If you already have a bank account with Halifax, you can open a rewards account too.

I have one and I just transfer money from my main Halifax account to my rewards account and back again just to get the £5 reward.

Then you can transfer the £1k a month from another account with a bank that you have an account with and then back again. You would still get the £5 a month.

Or if you have no bank account then I guess you could pay good old fashioned bank notes and coins into your account and then withdraw it a day later if you wanted to do it that way.

As long as the account is funded with £1k a month it doesn't matter how you deposit the money too it!!!!
