    To get the bonus, you must use the CASS (Current Account Switching Service), which can only be used between difference banks, not for changing the type of account you have with a given bank.

    If you want the bonus, you need to set up a current account incl 4 DDs) somewhere else and switch that.

    Curious, hope you don't mind the question do you have Cashminder account because of a DMP or such? Reason for asking, I finished a DMP two years ago and have had the Cashminder account for seven years. Ideally I would have liked a Santander 123 account now but was turned down, despite having a very healthy bank balance now the DMP is over and £25,000 savings account. I would like a card to use on the London buses and some shops, obviously the Cashminder one is not a "tap and pay" one, so I went into my Co-Op bank today and was kind of shocked to be told they cannot upgrade the account to a normal Co-Op account. Does anyone know if there is a basic account that does have "Tap and pay"? I don't need any form of credit card or overdraft with the savings and pay I have.

    Nationwide is a good bet.

Would be another non starter when they do a credit search.

    I sorted my problem with the Cashminder account not having the pay with wi-fi symbol in shops and on TFL. Co Op sent an email about adding a card to my iPhone. Wondering if they would allow the Cashminder account to be used, I tried adding it and it worked so I will sit out the next four years until I can upgrade to a better bank account. It will be just in time for my retirement so I can start afresh with a different bank and have the Pension money go in.
