    New First Direct Referral Offer - Earn £140 14th Feb 08 at 8:46 AM
    I have three referrals to First Direct, sent to me as an existing customer. The rules are:

    You must be a brand new customer and must open a First Account and transfer salary/income (min £1500 per month) before 30 June.

    You will receive £100 incentive from First Direct. I will get £50 and will pay you £40 of this, so in total you will get £140.

    Please PM me if you are interested. There may be better offers via cashback sites.

    I also have referral cards.

    Can anyone tell me if FD tell you which referral successfully got you the referral payout?

    I'll give £25 for a successful application so you get £125. I will post the card out but will BACS the £25 when I get £50. Think I will do 1 for the minute until I find out whether you can identify which referral the payout relates to.

    FD condition is that you pay in £1500 PM and transfer two Direct Debits. PM me if you can do this. I recommend opening a standard savings account if you not intend to pay in £1500 at a later stage, otherwise, it'll be £10 a month. The savings account waives the fee. Paying in £1500 each month does the same.

    Free £125
    Just joined FD using a referral card. I’ve now received three cards to hand out myself.

    You receive £100 from First Direct for opening the account and meeting the criteria (see below) and a further £25 from me (50% of the referral bonus).

    Criteria:
    This offer is valid for new customers who have not previously held any account with first direct, who open a 1st account and then transfer their banking using the Easyswitch service (transferring at least two Direct Debits and/or standing orders) and salary/income of at least £1,500 per month to their 1st Account before 31 December 2013. No incentive will be paid if the above conditions are not met. This offer can't be claimed in conjunction with any other joining incentive offered by first direct.

    PM me your name and address if interested, thanks!

    First Direct Bank Referral
    Hi all,

    I saw the recent newsletter once again referred to the brilliant customer satisfaction rates of First Direct Bank and now that switching only takes 7 days and was reminded that I still have a few of these referrers cards.

    If anybody is interested you obviously get the £100 for joining and I will be happy to give you £30 of my bonus too making it £130.

    Just drop me a pm and I can organise this for you if you like.

    £130 if you go with me for a referral (£100 straight from First Direct) and £30 from me (one I get it from First Direct).

    Please PM me if you would like to take advantage of this offer. I will need your name, address, date of birth and phone number to include on the referral postcards I've got. The postcard gets sent to First Direct and they then complete the application for an account with you directly.

    First Direct £145 joining incentive
    EARN UP TO £145 for opening a bank account with First Direct

    I have 3 x First Direct recommend a friend cards available and I will split the £50 fee I get for each recommendation £30 to me and £20 to you.

    First Direct will also directly credit you an additional £125 for opening an account with them, if you satisfy their requirements.

    These are:

    1. open an account; and

    2. transfer your banking and salary/income (this can just be a faster payment for another account and doesn't need to be your salary) of at least £1,000 per month to your 1st Account using the Current Account Switch Service within three months of your account opening.

    An that's it - and the £145 is yours! - Easy money!

    Also don't be put off by the standard £10 a month account fee as this can be avoided easily by just paying in £1000 a month from another account (in one transaction or via any number of installments in a month which together total £1000) for just a minute and then immediately moving the money back out again via faster payment. Another way to avoid the fee is to open an Everyday E-Saver account at the same time as opening the Current Account and deposit £1 in it and leave it there on an ongoing basis.

    Please PM me if you would like a recommendation - I just need your name, date of birth, address and phone number to do it. I will then send First Direct the completed recommendation card and they will call you to open the account. Alternatively, I can send the completed card to you by post and you can then send the card to First Direct to apply by post or instead apply via phone and mention the recommendation card during the application process and give them my name and details then.

    Within 28 days of the first £1000 of income being mandated to your account, your First Direct £125 GBP incentive payment will credit.
    My £50 incentive will credit within a further 28 days after this.
    When my referral has credited I will PM you and can Faster Pay your extra £20 to you.

    Please be aware that this offer is not available to applicants who have previously banked with First Direct.

    Thanks

    First Direct Recommend a Friend
    Hi,

    You may be already aware First Direct is offering £100 if you switch your banking to them. As I am First Direct existing customer I can recommend you to First Direct in which I will receive £50. Once paid I will pay you £25 from my share. So you will get in total of £125.

    The account cannot be applied online. I received some postcards from First Direct. These needs to be completed and sent back to them. They will then send an application pack for you to complete.

    I have done this with my other half and First Direct was really quick in sending an application pack out and responding to her application.

    Further details are here and terms and conditions http://www2.firstdirect.com/1/2/friends

    If anyone wants me to refer them, I will need:-

    • Your full name including any middle names
    • Your address
    • Date of Birth
    • Contact telephone number

    This is required on First Direct recommend a friend form.

    If interested, please PM me with your details.

    Regards
    MS

    First Direct Referral
    If a friend or family member has a First Direct current account you may wish to get them to refer you but if not I will happily do so:

    I received £100 when I switched an Account to First Direct.

    Subject to the terms and conditions, First Direct will give you £100 for switching to them. If I refer you First Direct will also pay me £50.

    They also, at the time of posting, offer a 5% fixed interest regular saving account.

    To qualify you need to switch a current account to First Direct using their switching service. This does not need to be your main account. You must deposit £1000 withing three months of account opening to receive the payment.

    Please PM me the following details:

    Your Full Name
    Your Date of Birth
    You UK Address including Postcode
    Your Phone Number

    (These details are used by First Direct to confirm your application came from my referral)

    When I have received these details I can complete the referral form and let you know I have done it.

    Advance thanks to anyone wishing to request a referral from me.

    Once you do get your switching incentive, why not join me here to receive a bonus for referring others.
