    Wow! Thats awesome. I can never be bothered to shop around and find the cheapest deal because it hardly seems worth it for a few pound here and there but after seeing the difference it all makes I think I'll give it a go!

    £100 cash incentive for opening a First Direct Current A/c & switching from my old current account.

    I opened the Acc online ,
    When I received my new bank card, I arranged the switch &
    paid in the £1000 ( from my Savings ) .

    It took 21 days from opening the Acc to receiving the £100 cash.

    I have now recommended my husband so he will be getting £100 & I will get an additional £50 for recommending him.
