    Co-op 4 direct debits: all from Tesco savings?

    Co-op 4 direct debits: all from Tesco savings? 9th Oct 17 at 11:15 PM
    Hi there.

    I am going to switch to the Co-op for the £125 incentive..

    They require 4 active direct debits.

    I have 2 Tesco Bank savings accounts, and can set up multiple direct debits from the same savings account.

    So my question is, if I set up 2 direct debits on the 2 Tesco savings accounts, would this count as 4 active direct debits for the Co-op's purposes?

    Thanks!

    Yes for everyday rewards, 4DDs paying out no matter if only one Tesco 4 times PM... but not for the switch - the repeat will be seen as the same DD, so only 2.

    I have two Tesco savings accounts. I had two DDs set up on each of these (different days, amounts, a/c nicknames) to pull money from a current account into these accounts.

    I switched that current account to Co-op with no difficulty and received the switching bonus.

    Seems to be conflicting opinions on this - but I have to admit I was passing on info argued on here before - not my own experience, as I have several other sources of DD. So could work for the OP.
    However if it were me, without alternate options, I'd open another 2 off TIS and set up additional DDs to be sure.

    It does work for everyday rewards payments - but best not to advertise that fact!

    Co-op switching incentive
    3.3 switch in a minimum of four active Direct Debits
    Co-op Everyday Rewards
    Pay out at least four Direct Debits
    Spot the difference.


    As for the original question. if you have four mandates is will suffice. For the switching incentive

    I was planning open a Co-op account this week and start the switch from my Barclays account to the Co-op next week after payday - but the links regarding the £125 switch bonus seem to have vanished. Anyone know if this bonus has now finished ?

    It would appear to have ended, for now. I can't see any reference to it on their site.
    However, Halifax are also offering £125, if you haven't switched to them yet.

    Possibly, the bank switching offers come and go on a regular basis. Don't panic, just leave it for a few days and see if the offer is back - and check to make sure it is a good one as from time to time the new offers are less generous (but in time get replaced with a better one again ).
