    current account switch 4th Oct 17 at 12:05 AM

    I have three accounts at Co-Operative Bank:
    - Cashminder - oldest account, opened ages ago during my financial crisis. Still use it for wages, DD and everyday shopping
    - Current Account - opened because I wanted different card for online purchases, I don't use it now.
    - Savings Account

    Some people will say Co-Op Bank is little old-fashioned, but so am I, besides I still appreciate all their help when no other bank wanted to open even basic account for me.

    My question is:

    If I use Current Account Switch Guarantee Service and open new account at Halifax (free £125), will all my Co-Op accounts get closed? Will I keep cashminder and savings accounts when I switch current account to Halifax?

    Just the one you switch - which would need to be a current account.
    There are 24 bottles of beer in a crate. There are 24 hours in a day. Coincidence? I think not....
