Competition's been fierce in recent months, with 'bribes' of up to £175 offered to those willing to switch (see Best bank accounts). So whether you wanted better service, interest on your savings or just free cash – tell us when you last switched? Or if it's been a while or you've never done it, tell us why.

I do have three other current account providers, as there's some interesting savings accounts I make use of.
There are more purposes to a bank than just providing a money handling service (although it does seem to be that the 'customer' is doing more and more of the work we expect the bank to do) such as providing a secure deposit service. Having been into a Barclay's bank recently they don't appear to provide any Banking service whatsoever instead expecting the customer to do everything themselves 'on-line' outside of the banking hall.
I don't see a need to switch - in fact I believe the service I would get from a new bank would be worse not better and certainly not worth the bribe to switch.
