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    Note: T&Cs suggest that the offer may be withdrawn at any time so those who wish to take up the offer might want to move fast.

    DD disappeared....
    Hi all,

    Switched in November and just discovered that my TOTO Energy ( thatís another story) DD was cancelled shortly after my bank account switch. It had paid out the first DD from new account and was then cancelled - no idea how or by who.

    Bit annoying.

    I did call B bank yesterday to ask whether I've ticked all the boxes (I know I have) as discussed above, but I was told they do not do this any longer. I did say other people have done this in the past in order to get an oral confirmation from them, but they said they have been instructed not to do this any longer. Weird... They also mentioned I should receive an e-mail a couple of days before I receive the incentive, but I don't remember anyone else mentioning this here?

    I imagine they are fed up with people calling to ask if they will get it or not.

    I phoned the 0800 number a few days ago and the advisor Lee was more than happy to advise me I had met the criteria and the payment will be within 70 days from switch date.

    BTW my switch was completed on the 6 November.

    I just called back and was told I'd ticked the boxes and the payment should be made between the 1st and 31st (!) of January. That's quite a window, but it's free money so I won't complain

    Based on the general timescale of when people here are getting the money, mine should be in around about the 11th January. Will keep you posted.

    If there are two of you there's £200 each to be had there...unless one of you has already received an incentive previously?
