First Direct switching


Apologies if this has already been asked, but I couldn't see it mentioned anywhere else.

My wife and I both have a current account each and a joint account, all with the same bank. If I were to switch all of our accounts to First Direct would we get £150 for each account, considering we both get paid more than enough into our current accounts and then pay in more than £1000 into the joint account between us? We also would fulfil the direct debits needed on all the accounts.

Thanks for any advice

    You need to switch both your solo accounts first via the switching process, once they are both open you can bring in your joint account. You will only get a maximum of £150 for you and £150 for your wife.
