    Offer £250 to switch to Clydesdale, Yorkshire or B

    Offer £250 to switch to Clydesdale, Yorkshire or B 4th Oct 17 at 1:24 PM
    Update: This is now live nationwide, switching to Clydesdale, Yorkshire Bank or 'B'

    Hello,

    First post here though I do lurk elsewhere in the forums and thought I'd post this up having bypassed this yesterday. Yorkshire Bank have recently opened a new colourful branch on New Street, Birmingham and as a result are offering a generous £250 to switch.

    As the title suggests, the offer is subject to switchers who set up their account in the Birmingham branch only. Apologies if already submitted or is in the wrong forum area.

    Full T&Cs here: XXX.youandb.co.uk/resources/ca5d4166-3541-4222-a983-1a00b6623b91/B+Birmingham+T%26Cs+FINAL.pdf

    Note: T&Cs suggest that the offer may be withdrawn at any time so those who wish to take up the offer might want to move fast.

    I'm finding this odd. Made three attempts to cancel a standing order, logging out then in between the last two, and none of them has worked, it's still there.

    Do they need overnight? A SO I cancelled with BoS, also today, was instantaneous.

    Just an update on my old account still being open..... I called old account folk and they had received an instruction to close the account via the switch service, but had overlooked it, so it was still open....lucky I called them or I could have missed out on the 250. Word of warning to you all, ensure your old account is closed. Mine is now.

    Out of interest has anyone received the £250 bonus at present?
    I was just curious if the bonus was paid shortly after crediting the 2nd £1000 or 62 days after the switch was completed.

    Time has to pass before the £250 is paid, 70 days in fact.

    We will credit £250 to your account with us within 70 calendar days of your account switch being completed, provided you meet all of the qualifying criteria detailed in these terms and conditions, within this period.

    I think at the very least your second set of direct debit payments will have to go through before you get the payment, so if the first are on day 1 and the second on day 31, then effectively it would be a minimum of 31 days after the switch. It would also depend on when you make your qualifying transfers in as well, so if that is done on day 45 then you won't get your payment until after that. So yes, it could be up to 70 days after the switch or it could be earlier and it probably depends on when the qualifying events happen.

    It will be worth waiting for!
    Completed 2 x DDs out and £1k in (and out again a few days later.) Half the conditions fulfilled so far ......
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    There's no requirement for the £1K to stay in the account is there? It can go in and out the day after can't it?

    OK, so I got it the wrong way round. The d/ds have to paid within 62 days, and the £1,000 has to be paid in in the first 31 days and again in the second 31 days. So, my point re the timescale still stands, i.e. the earliest you can satisfy the rules is after 31 days from the switch,. I didn't "get the idea", it was just a simple mix-up.

    This wasn't a dig at you. I thought you genuinely thought that the direct debit payments had to be paid monthly and I was waiting to see if you were going to point out where it said this.

    There is a lot riding on this, and if you had been correct with your earlier comment, it could have saved a lot of disappointed peeps from not getting their payment.

    So, chill out . I wasn't having a dig, but I am not a mind-reader and all I can go by is what you have posted.

    The two direct debits have now been taken. Also the switch was completed on the 6 November and I paid £1,000 into the account on the 8 November and have today paid in a further £1,000. Hopefully I have now met the criteria.

    Also will now draw on the money to pay bills from that account.

    And there was no requirement to leave the £1k in there... unless someone knows better?

    2 DDs only need to be taken once in those 62 days after switch. I see no requirement for them to be taken twice.

    Switch completed and account closed: check.

    Two direct debits set up and paid out: check.

    Two lots of £1,000 paid in, 31 days apart: check.

    Just waiting for the £250 now
