    How about a small regular charity donation? The Red Cross (picked at random as the first charity to came into my head) don't seem to set a minimum on the first page of their online DD set up.

    Even if you donated £1 a month you'd still be making a £4 profit from Halifax for doing nothing.

    How do you make more DD's with Paypal and the same card/account?

    You can't add the same card with more than one paypal account its the same with bank accounts too. In theory your supposed to only have one personal paypal account in your name!!
    Time is a path from the past to the future and back again. The present is the crossroads of both.

    Ok thanks.

    I set up a monthly payment to a charity too, first payment is supposed to be the 19th Oct, but it's not showing on my account.. should it be there by now or maybe I've done something wrong?

    Does a free Netflix trial count as a DD? I had to enter bank details for after the trial ends - I used my M&S one.

    Netflix uses your card, not direct debit so this won't count even after the free trial.

    The 19th is Sunday so the DD will come out on Monday if at all - they might not take it this month since it takes time to set up. Did it specifically say 19th October?

    Some companies only show the DD after the first payment has been taken. I don't know if this is down to the bank or the company concerned

    Yes, it asks you to choose either the 5th, or 19th. I did this about 1 week ago, so thought it would be enough time.

    If I try to open a Tesco e-saver account and move money from M&S to that would that be pretty quick?

    I'm starting to panic a little, my switch date for Co-op is 27th, but I'm sure the bloke said something about it starting on 17th. I only have 1 Paypal DD showing atm.

    Openng Tesco savings accounts from scratch was pretty quick for me. (almost instant from memory).
    But……. once opened the online system needs a minimum of 10 days to set up new direct debit mandate, and will not allow entry of an earlier date (although the setup time for the mandate, i.e. showing on sending bank account, has in practice always been approx 3-4 working days)
    So, 10 days minimum from account opening. Sorry, not what you want to hear.

    Charities usually have £2 minimum Direct debits which I found a bit too steep to benefit from the £5 a month account TSB have/Halifax had.

    Google found me http://www.onepounddd.com which I've been using for the last few months and has been working great for me
