    Offer 250 to switch to Clydesdale, Yorkshire or B

    Offer 250 to switch to Clydesdale, Yorkshire or B 4th Oct 17 at 1:24 PM
    Update: This is now live nationwide, switching to Clydesdale, Yorkshire Bank or 'B'

    Hello,

    First post here though I do lurk elsewhere in the forums and thought I'd post this up having bypassed this yesterday. Yorkshire Bank have recently opened a new colourful branch on New Street, Birmingham and as a result are offering a generous 250 to switch.

    As the title suggests, the offer is subject to switchers who set up their account in the Birmingham branch only. Apologies if already submitted or is in the wrong forum area.

    Full T&Cs here: XXX.youandb.co.uk/resources/ca5d4166-3541-4222-a983-1a00b6623b91/B+Birmingham+T%26Cs+FINAL.pdf

    Note: T&Cs suggest that the offer may be withdrawn at any time so those who wish to take up the offer might want to move fast.

    You don't have a "credit score". They do not exist. The number you are referring to is a a random number produced by the credit reference agency using incomplete data to make money out of you.

    Different lenders score applications for different financial products differently so there is no 'catch all' score that determines your credit worthiness. Lenders use data from your credit file and also data from your application form that is NOT recorded on your credit file, such as your salary (a key driver), when assessing your application. Different lenders have different criteria, another reason a "credit score" means nothing -data that is considered good for one lender may be considered bad for another. Or vice versa.

    no security key or token thingy was even mentioned when I opened my B account in branch and I have never needed one to move money back and forth.Had no restrictions on sending 1000 at a time either,maybe it's different on the yorkshire/clydesdale accounts

    The Card readers are interchangeable, you can use any card in any machine (as far as I'm aware).

    Not had an issue with moving more than 500 myself, in fact I've moved over 1000 in and out twice already.

    It's not a card reader, it's a digital key like hsbc's (& FD's M&S's).
    Not interchangeable.

    Not required for B (I believe), but is required for 'not B' internet banking above the 500 per transaction, 1k daily wd limit & maybe set up new payees.

    Right, nevertheless I'm with Yorkshire and haven't needed any key when creating new payees nor when I've transferred over 1000.
