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    Note: T&Cs suggest that the offer may be withdrawn at any time so those who wish to take up the offer might want to move fast.

    Agh just checked this thread as I know the 70 days are nearly up. My switche(s) were 8/11
    Trouble is just checked the DD's and 2 of them been paying out. The others, when I click on them says "Mandate Active" , but hasnt paid out anything.
    Will this affect me getting the bonus. Guess will find out in a few days
    OH account seems ok so far, so hopefully he will get the nice email in 2 days time

    eta . just checked the t&c again and its 2 DDs u need. Where did I get the idea I needed 3.

    Switched on 8/11. Nothing from them yet.
    I WANT MY MONEY

    (Then I can hopefully do a quick switch to HSBC before Tesco delete my DD.)

    Got the email as well. As soon as I get the bonus, I will be closing the account via switching it elsewhere.

    Yep. Got the cash and switched to Starling. Easiest way to close the account.

    Just checked my account and was supposed to have 3 DD paid out to Tesco for £1 on 4th jan, £3 on 6th Jan, £4 on 8th jan none have been paid at all this month when they paid fine last month from the B account.
    What could have gone wrong will they have cancelled them? And most importantly will I still get the £250

    The terms state:

    "Ensure you have set up two Direct Debits from your new account within 62 days of completing your switch. These can be new ones or transferred from your old account, but payments must be made from them within those 62 days and they canít be cancelled before your £250 is paid."

    By the sounds of it, yours have paid out so if they are still active I think you'll be OK. If they cancelled them, I'd contact them to raise the issue.

    Looks like I won't be getting the £250. Is there any way I can set up another DD after 68 days and still get the payout?

    Emails yesterday afternoon but no bonuses as yet.

    We'll be keeping the accounts as second accounts because they're one of the few banks with a branch in our nearest town and we've already claimed switching incentives from most banks that have offered them over the last few years.

    Switched on 7th November, received email yesterday confirming switching bonus to be paid on 9th January, logged in today and £250 was credited on 9th January which is 63 days after switch date. I can finally relax!

    Well I spoke to a very helpful person at Yorkshire but it turns out that, since my water company cancelled my direct debit without telling me after the first payment went out, I now won't be getting the £250.

    So that was a waste of time but hopefully they will do a similar offer in the future and I'll try again. Time to switch to HSBC to try and get the £150.

    Oh no!
    Some of my switched dds didn't seem to operational so I set up new ones and cancelled those switched ones. i think I always had at least two operational, but now wondering whether I've disqualified myself.

    Read the excerpt from the T&Cs quoted in post 972, you should be okay going by that as long as you set up the new ones after the switch and they paid out within 62 days of the switch date.

    Same happened to me. All 4 switched DDs didn't work, so I cancelled and set up the same 4 again manually. Yorkshire even managed to cancel 1 of those, so I was starting to get concerned. Everything OK though and got my money yesterday, so as long as you have 2 DDs that have paid out at least once and are still active now, you should be OK on that score.
