    Graduate account to non graduate 16th Jun 17 at 9:50 AM
    My graduate bank account with HSBC is about to expire and they are about to move me to the the advance account.

    I noticed that if you switch to that account at the moment then you get up to £200 or something?! Should I be able to try and swing this as part of it? Granted I have to switch accounts as I'm now longer a recent graduate but doesn't seem that fair new users get all these add one j get nothing?!

    To be eligible for the switch incentive you can't already hold a current account with HSBC.

    The Advance Account will give you access to the 5% Regular Saver which you may wish to use.

    You aren't switching - it's the natural progression of student accounts

    Student > Graduate > Borg drone

    You could try and ask them (online chat, phone, or in branch) to see if you could try and wrangle something, but I'm pretty sure this is stipulated in their terms and conditions of opening and switching to an Advance account, whereby you won't be able to switch to Advance as you currently hold a HSBC account.
